Harry Potter Birthday Cake!!

I was so excited to do this cake!! My chef's youngest son requested a Harry Potter themed birthday cake, after seeing the Rubik's cube cake I made for his older can check that one out HERE!
His only request was to include a snake, spider and wand...the rest was up to's what I ended up with...

I added the golden snitch, Harry's owl Hedwig,  the Sorting Hat, then painted on the top two tiers the Marauder's Map complete with the footprints and banner that says "I solemnly swear that I am up to no good." The bottom tier is the Gryffindor's scarf.

I painted the snitch with some gold pearl dust, and added some gold edible stars for 'magic spell' appeal!

I even hand painted the happy birthday with black food colour, and even did the lightning bolt 'P's

Now I'm totally in the mood to watch the complete series of Harry Potter movies! :)

SHARKNADO Cupcakes!!!

Ok so I'm sure you have at least heard of Sharknado the movie, which has become a huge cult hit! I know it's a ridiculous idea of a movie, and the acting is horrible, but it's supposed to be like that! It makes the movies even better!! Anyways,  my chef is a little obsessed with the movie, and when the sequel came out this summer, that's all we talked about at work. His birthday was this past week, and I had the idea to make him Sharknado cupcakes for a surprise. They were a hit, especially with his kids!

The tornado is made from sugar cones with white chocolate drizzled around, and gummy sharks flying through the air. Blue butter cream as water on top of my decadent chocolate cake!

I think Wayne was happy! lol

The night before Kadie and I decorated his office with balloons and streamers and I told him a sharknado must have hit his office last night...
