What’s better than baking sweets? Baking Harry Potter themed sweets, duh.
What’s a better way to celebrate everyone receiving their Letters to Hogwarts (this past weekend), while also having a Hurricane Hermi[o]ne party? Having some magical baking fun, duh.
Harry Potter impacted the world in so many ways, but little did J.K. Rowling know is how much it impacted food.
All of the following creations and associations to books are my original ideas. Photographs are all mine, as well. So please, enjoy!
