My own feelings on licorice can be summed up by this comic, so one wave of these Harry Potter licorice wands have the power to make me feel gross. You can wield this power thanks to Rosanna Pansino—her Nerdy Nummies tutorial is available below. I have to admit, they do look pretty fantastic as wands. Not as food—wands. [click to continue…]

The Manticore is one of the most feared creatures in the Harry Potter universe. It boasts a scorpion tail, a lion’s body, a human-like head and skin that is impervious to charms. However, if you can find a way to defeat the mighty Manticore, you will be rewarded with quite the feast as it is known to taste like cake. Surprising, I know.

This spectacular Manticore cake is the work of Elias Darkwater and Kyle Miller with The Cake Shop for the Birthday Mischief Managed edible art collaboration. Check out more pics below. [click to continue…]

July 31st was a big day for Harry Potter fans, as the rehearsal script for the play Harry Potter and the Cursed Child, currently on in the West End, was finally released. It was also a big day for Potter author J.K. Rowling, and not just because of the book release – it was her 51st birthday.

To celebrate, she was presented with a birthday cake in the shape of King’s Cross Station in London – the location of both the fictional Platform 9¾ and its real-life counterpart – which she then tweeted about, because you would, wouldn’t you?

King’s Cross Station is much more significant for fans of J.K. Rowling than you might know. Her parents first met on a train at the station way back in 1964, while the idea for the Harry Potter series first came to her in 1990 as she was on a train. With connections like that, is it any wonder she chose to make it such a pivotal location within the Potterverse?
