Harry Potter Cake!

We made this cake for our friend Anna who is obsessed with Harry Potter. This is a red velvet cake with gold colored cream cheese frosting to resemble Gryffindor colors. After dirty icing the cake, we covered it in gold colored fondant. On top of the cake is a Gryffindor scarf, the "golden snitch", the "sorting hat", and the "elder wand," all made out of fondant. By marbling dark brown and light brown fondant, we were able to create a wood grain pattern for the wand. The note on top of the cake is made from thinly rolled fondant. In food coloring with a paint brush, we wrote Happy Birthday Anna. We hope you Harry Potter fans liked this cake!
