In chapter 11 of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, Lupin offers to go with the trio on their quest to find horcruxes, while leaving behind his wife and unborn child because he feels unfit to be a husband/father. This angers Harry and, becoming furious towards Lupin, he calls him a “COWARD”. Was he right in doing this? Or did he go too far?

Frosting-filled chocolate cauldron cakes

Thursday, July 18th, 2013 | Author: Heather

All right guys, I’m sorry for the delay with this post but things have been BUSY inside the Pensieve! But hopefully the simplicity and deliciousness of this recipe will make up for it.

All you’ll need to do is make some chocolate cake from scratch or from a mix and pour the batter into cupcake tins. Bake the trays. Take them out when they’re done and let them sit for a while to cool. When cool, cut a little chunk of the cake from the top of the cupcake.

Now it’s time to make the frosting.

You can use canned frosting but if you’ve never made your own before I highly suggest it. It’s super simple. All you need is a cup of margarine, a tablespoon of milk, vanilla extract to taste, and as much powdered sugar as you need to make a spreadable consistency. Combine with a hand mixer. Divide your frosting into four separate bowls. In one bowl, add a couple drops of yellow food coloring, in the next red, the next blue, and the next green. Mix with a spoon. Now you have your House colors!

To complete them, just place a dab of frosting into the hole you cut out of your cupcake. Frost the rest of the cupcake and enjoy. Now you’re ready for any wizarding affairs but promise you won’t try and slip anyone a love potion.
