These amazing Harry Potter cake ideas are magical and fun and perfect for your birthday celebration! From golden snitches to butterbeer cakes, any young wizard or witch would be thrilled to have these awesome cakes for their Harry Potter birthday party.
My kids are big fans of the Harry Potter series! They love all the Harry Potter books and movies and regularly visit the Wizarding World Of Harry Potter at Universal Orlando. (If you’ve never ridden the Hogwarts Express between the parks, you don’t know what you’re missing)!
Of course, we’ve also had more than our fair share of Harry Potter themed celebrations too. I’ll admit, I was thrilled when my girls requested them. Coming up with all the Harry Potter party ideas was always so much fun! Just the Harry Potter recipes alone are enough to excite me and we’ve made everything from golden snitch peanut butter balls to acid pops. You can check out all of my butterbeer inspired recipes here.
