Here is dessert - Butterbeer cupcakes. Thanks for the recipe Kelly! Even though Chester doesn't usually like cake, he enjoyed these. The wands the boys got for Christmas are also in this photo - they were worth the effort of ordering by phone - Chester got Harry's and Pickle Pants got Voldemort's. They love them! They go around the house "casting spells" on one another. :)
Lastly, I made some "licorice wands" by dipping licorice in melted chocolate wafers and then dipping in cupcake sprinkles. I love the black ones! I ate way too many of these since the kiddos preferred the red. Don't tell! We found the idea for these on-line on a Harry Potter related website.
The potion labels are from a fabulous book my parents got for Chester at Christmas, it is all about the Harry Potter series - comments from the producer, actors, etc. A fun read, even for me! It included lots of hands-on stuff like the ticket to the ball, the Marauders' map, etc. Too fun!
Have a great start to your week!
p.s. Hope to be back soon with a card.
