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.

Next, we cut out a Hogwarts Crest stencil and used it to make the crests using gold royal icing.

In addition, these cookies include a Quirinus Quirrell cookie, a Dolores Umbridge cookie, and an Amycus Carrow cookie. These characters were also Death Eaters.

Splendid Harry Potter Cake Tutorial

Harry Potter Cake

This Splendid Harry Potter Cake Tutorial is a single tier cake that looks like Harry’s Gryffindor shirt, tie, and robe.  

This wonderful cake was made by Little Cherry Cake Company.

This is the fourth of 4 posts featuring Tracey’s tutorials of Harry Potter cakes.  She does such a great job that I wanted to share all of them with you.

The sorting hat is on top of the cake. Harry’s broom is beside the cake.  The birthday age 10 is written with the 1 as a lightning bolt.  There is a purple bag of Bertie Bott’s Every Flavour Beans beside the cake.

I like the way the birthday name has a lightning bolt as the bottom of the letter Y.

Here’s a terrific tutorial that Tracey made on how to make this cake.  Please take a look at her Youtube channel to see other great tutorials.

Terrific Monster Book of Monsters Cake Tutorial

Monster Book of Monsters Cake

This terrific Monster Book of Monsters cake tutorial has Dobby and Harry Potter’s wand on top.

This wonderful cake was made by Little Cherry Cake Company.

This is the second of 4 posts featuring Tracey’s tutorials of Harry Potter cakes. She does such a great job that I wanted to share all of them with you.

I like the shaggy texture of the book cover and the realistic looking mouth and teeth. The color is layered on to add depth and make the mouth look more realistic. The pages are shaded to look yellow with age and parts of the brown fur is shaded to add dimension. 

Notice the shading on the cake board that makes it look like old worn stone.  

She has this terrific video on how she made this cake.  Please be sure to check out her youtube channel for more terrific cake tutorials.
