Toot Toot! It's the Hogwarts Express Cake Coming Through!

Toot Toot! It's the Hogwarts Express coming to a desert table near you! Well not quite near you perhaps, but once again master baker Duff Goldman of the popular Ace of Cakes program on Food Network has done a bit of cake magic for a Harry Potter premiere. Readers will recall of course, that Duff created the fantabulous Hogwarts castle cake for the OotP Premiere (video here) and later was a guest on PotterCast to discuss the unique cake. Thanks to this NY Magazine article on the private Half-Blood Prince afterparty in New York City recently, we can see Duff's latest creation, a giant Hogwarts Express cake ("complete with functional steam pipe — but was actually a five-layer chocolate cake.") He also spoke to our friends Feltbeats about this cake, seen here on Youtube.

On a related note, scores of readers have been owling about a blog which has taken an interest in various Harry Potter cakes. While many we have seen before here on Leaky (including one that was made for a former staffer's wedding), you can see these cakes here and here. Also don't forget our own wonderful Crafty Witches have long had a section Harry Potter cakes, which you can see here.

Thanks guys!

Yummy. Ace of Cakes is an awesome show and those cakes look too beatiful to eat. Which reminds me vaguely of my HP Birthday Cake featuring Harry Potter, and it was kinda 3d-ish? Anyway now I want to try to make one of them HP cakes myself. Or just fail epically and go see if I can find the person who made my HP cake…

I do watch Ade of Cakes, but my husband and I have been watching Cake Boss on TLC and that’s another good cake show.
