Sorting Hat Harry Potter Cake

Ever since the Harry Potter exhibit has opened up at the Discovery Museum at Times Square, it seems that I’ve been getting plenty of inquiries for Harry Potter-themed birthday cakes… with the deliveries inevitably ending up at the Discovery Museum’s downstairs party room (I love the irony of the Cake Boss cafe being on the same level).  The client had inquired about my previous Harry Potter book cake, but wanted something a little different, perhaps a combined Sorting Hat cake. I wanted to add different elements to this cake besides, coins or the typical Gryffendor scarf, so we opted for the potion bottles. We also added the touch of the ink bottle with the feather quilled pen, which was made out of wafer paper! Each bottle is actually an individual cake as well.
