Many readers have owled regarding the season premiere of the Ace of Cakes program on the Food Network that will feature a very special cake, and brief interviews with some of the actors from the Harry Potter movies including Dan Radcliffe. Created by Duff, aka The Ace of Cakes, this special Hogwarts Castle cake was featured at the party held after the premiere of Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix in Los Angeles, California on July 8, 2007. Duff will join PotterCast this week where we learn more on the amazing journey that took the cake from the Charm City Cakes bakery in Baltimore, MD to sunny LA for this glittering event.

In a fun interview with John Noe and this editor, we discuss our adventures at the after party (photos of the setting here in our galleries), and also learn that Rupert Grint likes his cake and wants to eat the cake too! The “Ace of Cakes” program featuring the Harry Potter Hogwarts cake will air on cable channel The Food Network Thursday, January 24 at 10:30pm ET.

Editor’s note: While I can attest that the cake was quite delicious, I believe John Noe ate the entire Astronomy tower, but that is still up for debate. Perhaps it was only part of the hospital wing ; )

This is why Pottercast is so freakin’ awesome! Not only do they score interviews with people from the books and films (lets not forget Jo Rowling herself hehe), but also interviews with spectacular cake decorators! When they say everything Harry Potter, they MEAN everything Harry Potter. Pottercast Rocks!!

I just have to say that the pictures of the “blue” common room from the LA after-party are amazing. Thanks for linking them.

So I need to know if Duff dressed in wizards robes while making this cake…cause I remember the Scottish ‘beastie’ cake he did for a couples Scottish themed wedding, and he took to wearing a kilt and having bagpipers in the bakery. He’s a man who really goes with his themes!

I love Duff, it’s awesome he’s on Pottercaste!

I LOVE Ace of Cakes!!! I would LOVE to have a cake made by ANYONE there. Plus this episode airs on my birthday!! Yay! And I just recently got hooked on Pottercast (I just got a mp3 player a few weeks ago, I know I’m behind but with a kid…well) I’ve been listening to all the old episodes. Yay! Too much night time sugar.

Definitely looking forward to that interview…shame I can’t eat that cake…I wonder if Duff included Hagrid’s hutt and the herbology greenhouses…

Avatar Image says:

So, Suze, did you attack the Hogwarts kitchen in an effort to free the house elves? Wow, the whole Astronomy Tower, huh? From the ramparts to the foundations? Does John never get a stomach ache? And, will this podcast be out before the show airs this Thursday? That will absolutely maximize the awesome!

Ace of Cakes is one of my favorite shows! I have been waiting for this episode to happen, because they had the picture of the Hogwarts cake on their website. But then they did an episode about Hairspray, which technically happened afterward, so I got worried. But yay, it’s finally here! I’m so excited!

Avatar Image says:

Ooh ooh, I LOVE Ace of Cakes!! I cannot wait to catch this episode, thanks Leaky!

Avatar Image says:

That truely is amazing and its making me very hungry looking at it but I agree I would have to take lots of pictures and like frame it before I ate it because that is just miraculous, all the little details and stuff look really cool.

Avatar Image says:

Harry Potter and Ace of Cakes! Two of my favorite things ever!!! I always wonder if I would actually be able to eat Duff’s cakes, though, because they’re gorgeous, and I would be afraid to ruin it…. ;-)

Avatar Image says:

Avatar Image says:

Avatar Image says:

SWEET! Love watching Ace of Cakes, and I admit to having a little crush on Duff. :P

Can’t wait to hear the interview … and see the episode on TV. :D

Avatar Image says:

I really want to see it. It must have been so cool to be there. I’d have been like Rupert.

Avatar Image says:

I LOVE this cake!! But how could you possibly EAT such a MASTERPIECE?!!

If it were mine I would keep it forever and ever; it is sooooooo beautiful!!!!

I also really enjoyed seeing’ the pictures of the “set” for the after-party; especially the “enchanted” ceiling and the wall of prophecy orbs.

Avatar Image says:

Avatar Image says:

Um, the two greatest joys in my life have collided. I saw they were making a cake for HP and almost died. But Duff, freaking on Pottercast? It’s too amazing for words.

Avatar Image says:

OH MY! The photos are incredible! And Duff made the cake? That’s just the best! dies

I’ve set the alarms to remind me NOT to miss this episode! Thanks for the interview & the pics! You guys rock~

YAY!! PotterCast rules!!! I’m so watching this show tomorrow.

Avatar Image says:

that show was so much fun. The (non-edible) castle was gorgeous and the (edible) landscaping was beautiful. Loved when Duff said he wished he could just say “Locomotor Cake.” And Mary Alice’s magical power is “to get Duff to do what he needs to do.” LOL!
