Snitch Cake and little Snitches

ok, so while I'm waiting for the ten comments from the previous post, I thought I'd sneak this one in about the cakes.

This was the picture I used as a guide:

This is the cake we had for the party:

I'm really kinda proud of myself for getting that gold color so spot-on. It was acheived using a combination of cocoa powder, yellow, and orange food coloring, and what really made it taste good was some Vanilla, nut, and Butter extract (the same stuff we used to make the butter beer)

The cake was a little small for the crowd we had, but we were feeding them so much other stuff, and loading them up with candy, so I didn't feel too bad giving them small pieces of cake.

Inside the cake, I had put a plastic Easter Egg, with a "resurrection stone" (a ring pop with the plastic ring part taken off) and a key to unlock my daughter's bedroom where "Honey Dukes" was located.

Being the huge Harry Potter fan that she is, my daughter also wanted the treat she took to school to also be Harry Potter themed. There is a boy in her class with the same birthday as her, so she wanted to do something besides cupcakes.

I had seen a recipe for Oreo Truffles on this blog, and thought this would be the perfect chance to make them. After we made them, we wrapped them in gold candy wraps (bought at Hobby Lobby- Wilton brand) and put the white feathers in for the wings.

we even boxed up a few to take to some of my friends who helped with the party.
