Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Premiere

Ok, so I was beyond excited when I got the phone call for this cake! I was asked to come to New York and make a cake for the premiere of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows in Manhattan! Such an amazing opportunity I was floored! For this premier, they wanted me to replicate a cake from a wedding scene that takes place in the movie. I was given a blurry picture of the original cake and told they wanted it to be massive. So, massive is what I did! The cake ended up being 10 feet tall with a 36″ base. Yea…that was a joy to stripe lemme tell you! This cake took  9 buckets of fondant and 600+ sugar grapes to decorate the exterior. To stack the cake it took me, a team of 5 men, and an electronic lift to stack the cake tier by tier in the middle of the room. I was so pleased with the finished project, the depth that the lines created was stunning! I was so excited to see it all come together and that it went so well with the theme of the room. Cakes like this don’t come along every day and I was so thrilled they asked me to make it! Enjoy the pictures from the event!
