daughter suggested a HP themed party for her younger sister who was to be 11
this year. In preparation she had surfed the net for all the dishes mentioned
in the books. (this was a surprise to the b’day gal boy was she bugged because
we did “khusr phusr” without her!!
pumpkin juice, stew and this Cauldron Cake. The highlight!!
suggest recipes for egg less baking in a crazy moment I suggested this Cauldron Cake. I need to
mention here I did not expect her to choose this recipe I was insecure of
making this recipe with eggs and egg less?
delicate. Handling them needs you to be deft. To exemplify I had 24 cup cakes
or muffins and still I got only 2 finalists the rest were all runners up.
sir not a pip from anyone!
this challenge I would have ordered the cake from the bakery. Of course these
were not on the menu for the party! (I made another cake with eggs for that.)

let sit 5 minutes before use. If chocolate thickens too much, return to heat
and stir until smooth and melted once more.
a knife cut out a cavity in the bottom of the cupcake.
When using a knife, run it in a circular motion around the cupcake, while
always pointing the knife towards the center (this will make the cavity cone
Dip the top of the cupcake into
the chocolate glaze.
Flip the cupcakes right side up and let
rest until the chocolate sets, about 30 minutes in the refrigerator.
To make the cauldron feet, take 3
chocolate chips and form a small triangle, placing each chocolate chip roughly
an inch from the others. Place the top of a cupcake onto the chocolate chips
and push down ever so slightly so the chocolate chips will stick into the
chocolate glaze. Repeat for the rest of the cupcakes. (I could not do this so
cauldrons are feetless).
Using a knife spread the glaze
around the rims of the cupcake. (You could pipe it too).
I filled the icing gun with the
butter icing and piped it into the cavity of the cupcakes.
Melt the remaining chocolate chips, stir
until smooth, and place into a pastry bag.
You don’t need a special tip for this
step simply cut off the very end of the pastry bag which was sufficient.
Pipe out the handles on a butter paper.
Let the chocolate set until
hardened, approximately 30 minutes, before very carefully peeling off of the
non-stick surface and placing into the top of each cupcake. (This is the step
where I broke all my handles so be careful).
