Toot Toot! It's the Hogwarts Express Cake Coming Through!

Toot Toot! It's the Hogwarts Express coming to a desert table near you! Well not quite near you perhaps, but once again master baker Duff Goldman of the popular Ace of Cakes program on Food Network has done a bit of cake magic for a Harry Potter premiere. Readers will recall of course, that Duff created the fantabulous Hogwarts castle cake for the OotP Premiere (video here) and later was a guest on PotterCast to discuss the unique cake. Thanks to this NY Magazine article on the private Half-Blood Prince afterparty in New York City recently, we can see Duff's latest creation, a giant Hogwarts Express cake ("complete with functional steam pipe — but was actually a five-layer chocolate cake.") He also spoke to our friends Feltbeats about this cake, seen here on Youtube.

On a related note, scores of readers have been owling about a blog which has taken an interest in various Harry Potter cakes. While many we have seen before here on Leaky (including one that was made for a former staffer's wedding), you can see these cakes here and here. Also don't forget our own wonderful Crafty Witches have long had a section Harry Potter cakes, which you can see here.

Thanks guys!

Wicked cake, prefered the Hogwarts one though I think.
The description of the party was amazing, how come I didn’t get an invite?

Really nice cakes! My mom once made me a Harry Potter book cake years ago, it was yellow and pink. :-)

I love Ace of Cakes, though I always thought that Geoff and Frak are long lost brothers or something because in my head they are pretty similar.

WOW! stares in amazment.
I baked some rock cakes the other day and thought that was cool and I was so proud! But this is incredible. So, amazing. And that Duff Goldman looks like a really cool person. Really nice and down to earth. Just great! :D
