SortingCupcakes_HouseColors

Tina at Sugar Bean Bakers has sent us another tip and it’s a fun follow up to her Hogwarts Acceptance Letter cookies.

This time around it’s Hogwarts Sorting Cupcakes. It’s a pretty easy recipe: any flavor cupcake filled with a tinted cream filling in the house colors. But the fun part is that, aside from the filling, they all look the same. Which means, you need to bite into the cupcake to know which house you’ll be in.

Eating a cupcake. So. Much. Work. I’m sure you’ll all hate the idea. It’s much better than a hat that’s for sure.

Head after the break to check an additional picture.

It can be difficult to decide on a theme for your birthday cake, especially if you love science fiction. Apparently Neal decided to have Regali Kitchen combine all the sci-fi in one, glorious cake. There’s the Millennium Falcon and Death Star from Star Wars along with the Enterprise and a Klingon Bird of Prey from Star Trek.

Firefly‘s Serenity is also there with a transport ship, as is the TARDIS from Doctor Who and a Dalek ship. There are even lighted effects to the ships’ engines or, in the case of the TARDIS, that little light on the roof.

This Hobbit cake by Tartas Imposibles is definitely among the best nerdy cakes I’ve ever seen. I love how they were able to incorporate the book into the cake.

Also, all of the little details, like the cold coins and the torn pages, make this cake a winner.

Star-Wars-Wampa-Cake

This wampa cake is the work of Yummy Crumble (where you can find the complete recipe) and it’s more than a little terrifying.

Trying to eat it might be risky. Maaaaybe I’ll just put it in the freezer with a Luke figure to keep it happy. Giving his arm back might be a good idea as well.

snape cake 1

Neha, the baker behind BlueBay Desserts, is a fan of Harry Potter. Her take on a Severus Snape cake is inspired by how the character looked in the “How It Should Have Ended” take on the franchise, and I have to say that her sculpture is a close match. Besides making Snape, she crafted a potions bottle, a bit of parchment, the Slytherin symbol, and an Advanced Potion Making book to add to the cake. She put a silver doe on the side of the cake because “always.” Sniffle.

This snake cake was made by redditor Dookalighnmike‘s uncle for his cousin’s birthday. It took him six hours to make the masterpiece which looks just like a coral snake. Coral snake venom is poisonous, and if you have a peanut allergy the same is true for this cake.

cinderella castle cake 1

There’s nothing quite like the feeling of walking down Main Street USA in the Magic Kingdom and seeing Cinderella’s Castle for the first time. Though I love Disneyland and the smaller Sleeping Beauty Castle, Cinderella’s Castle is absolutely magnificent. It’s grand, it’s detailed, and I’d love to move in. I feel the same way about this massive cake by Francine’s Sweet Treats.

This detailed replica of the magical Disney World castle is over three feet tall! Besides the sheer impressiveness of the construction and engineering, the cake is beautifully decorated. The area around the drawbridge is covered with outlines depicting individual bricks and the windows are all iced.

Drool over some close-up shots of the cake after the break.
