His dad designed a portrait of the boy giving him Harry Potter look & style. This picture was the inspiration for the cover page of the 3D book cake.
Here is the picture of the portrait that was provided to me for the design.
Next, was the 3D Magical castle which sits on top of a scenic mountain. The castle has elaborate detailed decorations. The castle is carved from a sheet cake, covered with buttercream and decorated with a combination of buttercream and fondant accents.
Here is the view of the front of the castle..
Here is a view of the back of the castle...
It was all together a different challenge & an excellent experience to make someone's birthday Truly Magical.
