Book of Spells Book alone Potion bottle - add lines to the sides to make the pages Wand is made of fondant - I used a tooth pick to make lines and painted it with brown food colouring

This Harry Potty Cake is a book made of chocolate cake with chocolate buttercream filling. The whole cake is then covered in ganache.

I love covering cakes in ganache before fondant - It makes them stronger! The decorations are made in fondant - the book is hand painted with copper dust and vodka.

For the books spine I put fondant "snakes" on the cake before adding fondant to give it and antique look.

From the editor:


This Harry Potter cake is fabulous. You've obviously found your niche. Your cakes are getting better and better every time I see them. The details really make the difference.

As always, thanks so much for sharing with us.
