The cake! Those stacked book cakes turn out to be way harder than they look.

Just a smudge of food coloring on the bottom of the glass! That's why you cover it with ice and have them hold it in their outstretched hands in a mystical fashion. Adds drama and misdirects from the secret of the trick. ;-)

I should add that you prep the cups well ahead of time (days, easily) so that the food coloring is dried and doesn't stick to the bottom of the next stacked cup. I like Americolor gel food coloring for brilliant color.

The golden snitch is perfect. I'm attempting to make some cake pops as snitches. Any hints for making them so golden?

Yellow chocolate melts to start (or butterscotch worked well). Then just give it a spray with aerosol gold luster dust, and you can get a beautiful, even golden sheen.

1201378387_rxzzy-l_thumb What did you use to change the color? That's a great idea!

Hi Nicole, I just finishing off a huge surprise party for my sister in law and we are doing a harry potter theme and if you could help find those certificates that you printed off that would be a great favor for her party. Thanks.

The booklets, Lisa? Paulette made them herself. Sorry, they're not available for download anywhere!
