Duff Goldman and his crew at Charm City Cakes have made cakes for most of the Harry Potter movie premieres over the years, but the one they created for the long-awaited finale is nothing short of amazing. I don’t think I’m spoiling anything for anyone by saying that there’s, you know, a fair bit of fighting that happens at Hogwarts during the last book and movie. Naturally, the school of Witchcraft and Wizardry gets a little beat up in the melee. That’s the Hogwarts Duff and Co. created. They used more than 120 LED lights on different circuits so they blinked at different times, creating a flickering appearance that made it look as if the school was aflame. Strategically-placed smoke machines added to the effect. Underneath all of the smoke and
mirrors lights was a delicious pound cake, though Duff also provided pumpkin-chocolate-chip, cardamom-pistachio, peanut-butter-chocolate, carrot cake and strawberry shortcake for the hungry crowd.
