What kind of cake should I have at my 13th birthday party?!
My son is really into Harry Potter too and we are making him a golden snitch cake using Wilton's ball cake pan. He also suggested making a Gryffindor house crest out of a sheet cake. Hope you find the perfect cake for you. :)
Do all your guests like coffee? If so, mocha cake would be fun. Have a chocolate cake made with half-water and half-coffee, and then have it iced with chocolate icing made with coffee as part of the liquid.
If your guests do not all like coffee, try a half & half cake: half of it is the mocha cake and the other half is yellow or white cake with cinnamon-vanilla icing.
Of course, you could skip the coffee flavor entirely and do a chocolate or yellow cake (or a layer of each) with cinnamon-vanilla icing. That would be unusual and still palatable to most of your guests. I like the cinnamon-vanilla icing because the cinnamon helps cut the plain overpowering sweetness of most icings.
Hey i think you should have a coloured cake with harry potter surrounded by books :)
