Tasty Tuesday: What Harry Eats

posted by Jory on Tuesday, October 25, 2011
I'm too lazy this week to do anything but copy and paste a recipe from another site (don't worry, I included a link back to the original.) I picked this one because a) it's adorable, b) it's Harry Potter, and c) it's near Halloween.

"Golden Snitchcakes

From http://www.mugglenet.com/misc/rosmertas/goldensnitchcake.shtml


  • 1 box vanilla cake mix (and required ingredients required according to package)
  • 2 tubs of buttercream frosting
  • 1 package white melting chocolate
  • yellow food coloring

Directions for Snitches:

Step 1: Line the bottom of two 12 cup muffin tins with paper liners.

Step 2: Prepare the cake mix according to package directions.

Step 3: Fill the cupcake liners to 2/3 full of batter.

Step 4: Bake according to package directions.

Directions for Wings:

Step 1: Melt the package of white chocolate according to package instructions.

Step 2: Spoon melted chocolate into a small ziplock bag. Using a pair of kitchen scissors, cut an extremely small piece of a bottom corner of the bag.

Step 3: Cover a cookie sheet with parchment paper. Gently squeeze the ziploc bag to pipe the shape of a wing. Use butter knife to smooth the chocolate. Repeat process to create 2 wings per cupcake.

Step 4: Place cookie sheet and parchment paper with wings into the freezer to harden.

Directions to Assemble Golden Snitchcakes:

Step 1: Place 2/3 of frosting in bowl and add some yellow food coloring. Mix together and adjust color as necessary until it becomes the desired shade of gold.

Step 2: When cupcakes are completely cooled, use butter knife to spread the frosting over each cupcake.

Step 3: In a separate mixing bowl, mix remaining uncolored frosting with yellow food coloring until it is a lighter gold color than the cupcake frosting.

Step 4: Spoon this frosting into another small ziploc baggie and cut the corner extremely small.

Step 5: Gently squeeze this bag to pipe swirl pattern onto each cupcake.

Step 6: Take the hardened wings out of the freezer (they should easily peel away from parchment paper). Use a dab of remaining frosting to stick two wings on the side of each cupcake. ENJOY!!!"
