Harry Potter birthday cake

The birthday cake.

Beckham asked for a Harry Potter cake this year. For some reason this felt like a near impossible task. I don't do fondant and I was in no mood to learn. I also was not really in the mood to do and cake carving.

Thankfully at the last minute I came up with this.

Super simple. Rectangle chocolate cake, green dyed coconut flakes, floral wire bent into Quiditch goals, a few photoshopped Harry Beckhams and your done!

Beckham loved it....mostly. I believe his exact quote when I showed him Harry Beckham (which, ps, is WAY funnier than Beckham Potter) was, "I like it, but I'm a bit embarrassed because I'm a big head Harry Potter."

Too funny!

So fun, Amy was trying to describe it to me. She said it was a great party.

p.s. I loved the added touch of the lightening scar on his forhead.
Brilliant! (pun intended)

You need to live near me so I can talk you into doing all this stuff for my kids.

And you need to live near me so that after I do all this stuff for my kids you'll use your amazing photography skills for the benefit of my family :)

Sounds like a fair trade to me!
