I'd like to introduce you to the greatest Harry Potter fan in the world.
My daughter Isabelle, who is celebrating her 14th birthday today!
Since I have done Harry Potter cookies for her a number of times, I decided it would be fun to do some cupcakes.
I made a "butterbeer" cake that I filled with a rich butterscotch "goo", and topped with a cream cheese frosting. Hedgewig was embellished with slivered almonds, candy disks, and a cashew for a beak.
I also made some cupcakes with Harry's scarf made out of fruit roll ups.
We celebrated with an overnighter with besties Grace and Chloe, and a marathon shopping day. The girls tried on lots of formal dresses in anticipation of their first high school homecoming dance next year. No one can accuse them of procrastination...
So armed with her new magic wand and spinning head owl, my dragon slaying elfin daughter had a very happy birthday.
Oh, and the butterscotch "goo" was a big hit!
