Hogwarts Defense Against the Dark Arts Cookies

Harry Potter Cookies
Hogwarts Defense Against the Dark Arts professors cookie

My daughter and I made these Hogwarts Defense Against the Dark Arts professors cookies for my daughters Chemistry PHD defense celebration.

She is a big Harry Potter fan. As a play on words she wanted these Defense Against the Dark Arts professors cookies to celebrate she passing her PHD defense and getting her Doctorate degree in Physical Chemistry.

The cookies are in the order that that the professors served at Hogwarts.  Starting at the top left, there is a Quirinus Quirrell cookie, a Gilderoy Lockhart cookie, a Remus Lupin cookie, an Alastor ‘Mad-eye’ Moody cookie, a Dolores Umbridge cookie, a Severus Snape cookie, and an Amycus Carrow cookie.

First, I found images on the web of the Hogwarts professors that we liked. The Amycus Carrow picture was based on a picture of him in the Harry Potter lexicon.  I do not know who did the original drawings for the other professors.

Second, I made gingerbread cookies and then covered them with white royal icing. Next we drew and painted the images of  these Harry Potter characters onto them.

Scooby-Doo Cookies & Scooby Snacks Too

Scooby Doo Cookies
Scooby Doo Cookies

My daughter and I made these Scooby-Doo Cookies & Scooby Snacks cookies for my husband’s birthday.  We made hand-painted Mystery,Inc. cookies of Scooby, Shaggy, Fred, Daphne, Velma, and the Mystery Machine.

In addition, we also made bone shaped Scooby Snacks with the letters SD stamped on them. We also made chocolate bone Scooby Snacks.

The character cookies are gingerbread covered in royal icing. 

Scooby-Doo-Cookies

Scooby and Shaggy are pals so the 2 separate cookies have a plus made from chocolate scooby snacks to equal a cookie with both characters on it.

Daphne and Velma Cookies

The girls on the show are Daphne Blake and Velma Dinkley. Daphne is wearing her purple dress with purple headband and Velma is wearing her orange blouse and red skirt. Each of the 5 main characters has their own distinctive color scheme so it really easy to tell them apart on the show.

Scooby Doo Cookies

Fred Jones owns the Mystery Machine so these 2 cookies are together.  I also included the Mystery Machine because it is an iconic part of the show. In addition, it is how these members of Mystery,Inc. go from one mystery to another.

Scooby Snacks Cookies

The star of the show is surrounded by Scooby Snacks which are his favorite snack.

I made these chibi Lord of the Rings cookies for a birthday gift. The Gollum cookie shows his face and several single strands of hair.  His precious is no where to be found on him.

The Legolas cookie has a Leaves of Lorien silver Elven leaf brooch to fasten his cloak.

The Gandalf the Grey cookie has him in his grey hat and robe.

In addition, the Samwise Gamgee cookie has him in a brown robe. His yellow hair makes him easily recognizable.

And the main character of the story is Frodo, so that cookie is in the middle. He is wearing the One Ring on a chain around his neck.

 

LOTR cookies

These cookies were based on the characters from Chibi Coin Collections: the Lord of the Rings series mint coins by the New Zealand Mint. The coins were made of 1 oz of pure silver.

I liked the look of the mint coin characters, so I recreated their faces in cookie form.

Join the Duck Side – We Have Cookies

Star Wars Disney Mashup Cookies

Join the Duck Side – We have cookies.  I made these Disney Star Wars Mashup cookies for my son who is a big Disney and Star Wars fan.

I found a picture that I really liked by Deviant Art – Photon nmo. That picture has Mickey Mouse dressed as Luke Skywalker and Donald Duck as Darth Vader. Duck Stormtroopers are behind him.  Donald is holding a red lightsaber and Mickey is holding a green lightsaber.  Behind Mickey on the original artwork is Nemo as Admiral Ackbar.  I love the words on this which say on one side : ‘Come to the Duck Side.’ – – and on the other side  ‘It’s a Mouse Trap.’

Disney Star Wars Mashup Cookies

My Mickey Mouse Luke Skywalker cookie and Donald Duck Darth Vader cookie and Duck Stormtrooper Cookie are based on the drawing by Photon nmo.

Furthermore, I based the Goofy C3PO cookie and the Stitch Yoda cookie on Disney Star Wars cookies by Semi Sweet Designs.
