Avalon Cakes created this stunning Albus Dumbledore Cake for the Harry Potter Themed cake collaboration – Birthday Mischief Managed. Birthday Mischief Managed is a worldwide collaboration of food artists to celebrate J.K. Rowling’s 50th Birthday. The collaboration went live on July 31st, 2015 the date of H.K. Rowling’s and Harry Potter’s birthdays.
The sculpting on Professor Dumbledore is mindboggling. The hair is amazing, the skin looks so realistic, and the eyes are out of this world.
Dumbledore is one of my favorite characters in Harry Potter and his death was one of my least favorite parts of the series. Since James Potter died when Harry was young and Vernon Dursley can’t stand Harry, Harry grew up without a father. Even though Dumbledore is the headmaster for Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry, he becomes a father figure to Harry. Their relationship is one of my favorite parts of the series.
I found something interesting about the name Dumbledore on Wikipedia.
Rowling stated she chose the name Dumbledore, which is an Early Modern English word for “bumblebee”, because of Dumbledore’s love of music: she imagined him walking around “humming to himself a lot”.
