Harry Potter wedding cake

This wedding cake has to be one of my all time favourites - it was so much fun to create!

The sorting hat and books are cakes, the owl is made from the same modelling paste as my bride & groom toppers.

Huge congratulations to Emily & James on their fantastic medieval-themed wedding with a large dollop of Harry Potter thrown in! And special thanks for this lovely feedback they sent me afterwards:

"Hi Jen,
Just a quick email as I take a breather before packing the car for the honeymoon. We wanted say a huge thank you for the cake. It looked amazing and the comments we had were spectacular with lots of people saying the cake boss on tv needs to watch out as your creation was fantastic. People actually thought they were the real sorting hat and books. The glasses were a brilliant touch, but for me the owl bought tears to my eyes...
It was a crying shame when we cut in to the book, but there is nothing left as every piece of all the cakes went! It was delicious... we felt you had gone above and beyond and it was stunning.
Again, thank you so much
Emily & James"
