Class/Challenge/House Pride: Herbology
Project Name: Cherry Flavored Tremendous Taffy
Brief Description: While tinkering around with my potions cauldron, I was able to wave up a batch of Tremendous Taffies. They are little pieces of candy to keep with you when you are feeling meek and discouraged. Just chew on one of these and you will be feeling tremendous in no time. Of course they are rather bland to the taste so added some cherry extract to liven them up.
Class/Challenge/House Pride: Alchemy
Project Name: Peacock center piece cake
Brief Description: I love decorating cakes and seeing how many creative designs I can come up with, so when I read the Alchemy assignment I immediately pictured a fondant peacock. I made this cake small and square, so it would be a perfect center piece for an intimate tea party or a romantic dinner for two. The cake is pound cake because I thought a denser cake would support the structure of the design. Each feather was individually painted and it took forever. I used melted white chocolate in a squeeze bottle to make the accents.
Here's a pic of the blue marbled fondant that the cake is covered in:
