You don’t need magic to bake beautiful cakes, but I’m convinced a tiny bit of sorcery is involved. Royal Bakery crafted this Harry Potter themed cake from a quarter sheet cake. It was cut in half and stacked up to form the book, and it serves 27 people. The realistic leather texture of the book was attained by rolling scrunched up foil on top of the fondant, and the Hogwarts crest is made from modeling chocolate squished into a mold from a fridge magnet. The baker should teach a decorating class at Hogwarts!
