Hagrid's Hut and the Hippogryph birthday cake

by Mollie
(Santa Monica, CA, USA)

My husband is a big Harry Potter fan, so for his 60th birthday I decided to do a Harry Potter-themed cake. It took about a month to make Hagrid's hut, the superstructure made of pastillage and all the rest from gum paste. The pumpkins are modelling chocolate. The only non-edible element to the cake is Buckbeak, the Hippogryph. He's made from polymer clay. I wanted hubby to have souvenier of the cake. The actual cake is a berry/orange blossom sponge with buttercream and fresh raspberries. The "stones" are made of gum paste. The Marauder's map is made from gum paste and "painted" with food colouring.
