This Terrific Griffin Cake was made by Heathalus Foggyfoot Triwizard Tournament Wizard – Heather Sherman from Art2Eat Cakes.
This Terrific Griffin Cake was made for the Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them Collaboration.
The collaboration of food artists from around the world, known as Birthday Mischief Managed have assembled to debut their second installment of edible art in celebration of world-renowned author, J.K. Rowling’s screenwriting debut and newest movie trilogy – “Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them”.
“Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them”, is an A to Z “textbook” of magical creatures that have been featured in the Potter film series and publishing’s of J.K. Rowling. For this collaborative effort some of the beasts were removed from the list inside the textbook and each artist was asked to create the remaining using only their imaginations and the book’s descriptions with sweet edible mediums. Each artist has dressed for the occasion and transformed themselves into “Magizoologist”. Be sure to visit their pages and read the documents kept about their beast.
Our biggest challenge was resisting the urge to research, (cheat) pictures of our assigned beasts. The group has made sweet magic. My only regret is not having a pet Kneazle.” – Michelle “ChefMitchie” Curran aka Michaeleas Cuuragusta, Headmistress
Here is Heather’s description of this Fabulous Edible Beast:
Scrufflefluff and Ash: Scrufflefluff and Ash are best friends. Ash was raised high in the mountains, and spent much time alone in forests and meadows. Scrufflefluff was discovered by Ash as an injured kitten-chick, who simultaneously discovered previously un-tapped magical powers while defending the scruffy baby from the ignorant muggles who were “family”. The two fled, and lived in a dry, sweet cave in happy harmony together. Ash healed the baby’s broken leg, and would laugh at Scrufflefluffs baby antics. Ash gave Scruffle his name for his very un-griffinlike and highly undignified crest of silly fluff that pops up whenever Scruffle is intrigued or happy. They are adorable baby feathers that have remained even after several moultings. The two have been fast friends ever since. Ash never shirked the (bloody) responsibility of the proper feeding of a Griffin kitten-chick, bringing Scruffle many rabbits until he learned to hunt them himself. Then Scruffle hunted for them both! It is nearly impossible to win the unbreakable devotion of a Griffin, to the point where they will share food. When Hogwarts heard of the pair, Ash was extended an Invitation by Owl to attend Hogwarts, in Specialized Research of Creature Studies. Now, while Scrufflefluff wings about on his own (looking for lady Griffins), he returns frequently to Ash’s eyrie tower room for cuddle-snuggles and rabbit tidbits. Ash has been spotted clambering onto Scruffle’s back periodically and taking wild flights at all hours. Scrufflefluff is naturally the beloved live Mascot of Gryffindor, who welcomed Ash with wide open arms as long-lost kin. Hogwarts visitors are advised to look for Scruffle’s Orange Ribbon (normally tied at his throat), and if they see a Griffin approaching to please hold all spells.
