July is full of many important dates, but there is one that remains one of my very faves. It’s July 31st and for my fellow Harry Potter fans, you know EXACTLY what this date symbolizes…the one and only birthday of Mr. Harry Potter, himself. It just didn’t seem right not to do something festive, so in true Let’s Mingle fashion, I whipped up a Harry Potter Butterbeer Birthday Cake to celebrate!
This cake is decorated to be a replica of the birthday cake that Hagrid gives to Harry for his eleventh birthday, but I did switch things up a little bit to up the ante. Instead of the traditional chocolate cake that he’s given in the book, I went with a butterbeer cake, because BUTTERBEER. No brainer there.
