Gryffindor Cake

How to make Gryffindor Cake? There was no better moment to demonstrate support for this fantasy book series than right before the release of the Return to Hogwarts Harry Potter 20th Anniversary special on television. I could go as my favorite character, Ron Weasley, but instead I’ll stick to what I do best, which is bake pastries. Since the release of the last movie, sweets with a Harry Potter theme have become extremely popular. Fans of the book frequently host themed events, birthday parties, and other celebrations, which are enhanced by the sweets. The most popular dessert has to be Gryffindor Cake, while some people like cupcakes or cookies.

Although there are many different types of cake, since it is a 20th birthday party, we must make a Gryffindor Cake. The Gryffindor colors of red and yellow can be used to create a cake for any celebration. Let’e explored with

Gryffindor adornments:

Gryffindor Cake

  • Yellow food coloring paste (supercook yellow is basically ok, but you’ll need the extra concentrated others), black extra, brown, and red Sugarflair
  • Toothpicks
  • Icing sugar
  • Flower paste (Order some “ready to roll icing”; it works the same)

To begin creating some Harry Potter-inspired decorations, roll the sugar paste or frosting into a ball. Drop food dye onto the ball with a toothpick and gently knead it in. Up until the desired hue is reached, keep adding. This holds true for the scarf (yellow part), spectacles, and broomstick. I used a paintbrush to directly apply the red color to create the red stripes. Wear gloves and ideally work on baking paper that has been powdered with icing sugar. (Yes, you can now feel like a scientist too. Or an obsession with hair colour).

After completion, let the shapes dry for several hours or overnight on baking paper (as seen above). When they are finished, they will be firm and simple to take up and set on the Gryffindor Cake.

Ok, let’s go to the Gryffindor Cake. An easy task. This traditional four-egg Victoria sponge recipe is used. Use it to fill any straightforward cake, make buttercream for the top and filling, or use jam and cream. Or just sprinkle some icing sugar on top. Alternately, you could cover the entire thing in chocolate buttercream. There are countless options.

Ingredients to make Gryffindor Cake:

  • Castor sugar, butter, and SR flour, each weighing 8 ounces
  • 4 beaten eggs
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 200 grams of sugar
  • Unsalted butter, 100 grams
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1- to 2-tbsp milk
  • Fruit or jam to fill

How to make Gryffindor Cake?

Set the oven’s gas mark 5 to 190°F. Butter and line two 8″ tins. While beating the eggs and vanilla in a separate dish, cream the butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Sift over a third of the flour and baking powder, then a third of the egg mixture, and mix just long enough to combine. Repeat two more times, mixing just enough at the end to ensure that everything is incorporated equally (don’t overdo it). The Gryffindor Cake should feel springy to the touch after 20 minutes of baking after dividing the batter between the two pans. Leave in the tins to cool.

Combine the butter, icing sugar, and vanilla to make the buttercream. Be cautious not to add too much milk or the frosting will turn watery. Add just enough milk to make the frosting readily spreadable. Put the Gryffindor Cake together, filling it with buttercream and jam or fruit, and then frost the top. The Gryffindor decorations should then be positioned in the center. To finish, color some of the leftover frosting with food coloring before decorating the top borders with colored dots using a star-shaped piping tip and bag. Ta daa! similar to magic.

Of fact, a Gryffindor Cake is not required at all. After all, only one color (green) would need to be purchased for a Slytherin cake. Then then, it might be a malicious cake.
