HARRY POTTER BIRTHDAY CAKE VIDEO:

CAKE RECIPE:
Chocolate Cake Recipe Maglebys Copycat by Karen @ The Food Charlatan

ICING RECIPE:
1/2 cup unsalted butter, softened + 1 Tbsp melted
2 cups confectioners sugar
1 ½ tsp vanilla
2 Tbsp milk or heavy cream
2 tsp unsweetened cocoa powder
Red and green food coloring (Or remade green icing)

1. Stir together 1 Tbsp melted butter and cocoa powder until dissolved, set aside.
2. In mixing bowl, mix butter and vanilla. In 1 cup batches, add sugar to butter, beat with electric mixer until fluffy and creamy. If you are going to pipe the green from this icing, set aside about ½ cup of icing.
3. Add red food coloring, a little at the time, until you arrive at pink. Start small, you can always add more. I found it to be too bright, so adding the butter/cocoa mix took off the bright edge and made it closer to the movie version.
4. Put a small amount of icing in middle and coat the outside.
5. Add green food coloring to the small set aside until you arrive at a vibrant green. Put in piping bag with a round tip.
Use toothpicks to draw out lettering on the pink icing and trace or use one of the templates below to guide you.

Green Icing Tip:
You can use Wilton’s premade green icing that comes with a tip that screws to make writing a snap. If you are really in to cake decorating, get a starter decorating kit for not much more and use your own icing. I like tip #5 or #8 for this cake.
