Harry Potter is all the rage again, with the final movie having just been released this weekend. The series hasn’t gone out of vogue since the June 1997 release of the first novel, and continues to be a popular theme for kids’ birthday parties – and it looks like I may soon become one of the many parents in search of Harry Potter themed recipes. I came upon a brilliant collection on The Pastry Affair – everything you need to feed Harry Potter fans – at a theme party, or just in front of one of the seven movies.
Once upon a time, Kristin of The Pastry Affair studied to be an astroparticle physicist. After spending six years of her life immersed in complex equations, problem sets, and research, she made pastries as a creative escape. She has since turned her passion – making pastries, eating pastries, sharing pastries, dreaming about pastries – into a wonderful food blog, aptly named The Pastry Affair as it was pastries she snuck off to be with any chance she could. Her expertise is evident here, in her collection of brilliant (and beautifully photographed!) Harry Potter themed treats.
