Harry Potter Craftalong - Midsummer 2020 - Join Anytime!

First of all, sorry for the lack of recipe earlier, I winged it all but next time I do I’ll try to add more info.

Class or Challenge Title: Iron Chef: Blueberry
House: Slytherin
Project Name & Page Link: Blueberry mousse cakes
Brief Description: I’ve wanted to make these blueberry mouse cakes for a while, and over the weekend I had time to do it.
I loved the mousse taste, and the combination with the sponge cake, but the mirror glaze, as fun as it was to try it for once, didn’t help the cake at all, so it would be way better without it.

@imera - those look delicious! And the presentation on a green plate is perfect.

those blueberry cakes look so yummy! i wonder if the mouse would be strong enough to support white chocolate instead of the mirror glaze…

Wow! Beautiful! And I bet delicious too.

Thank you all.
And the mousse has gelatine in it so it’s more sturdy, and they were also frozen first before adding the glaze, so its quite doable switching the glaze for chocolate.
Another possibility would be to coat the mould with chocolate first then add the rest after.

They look so fancy!!

It’s July 1st, which means time for a new Iron Chef Challenge!

Class or Challenge Title: Headmistress Prompt, July Freedom Challenge
House: Slytherin :snake:!
Project Name & Page Link: Keto Berry Scones
Brief Description: I modified this recipe to eliminate the glaze (because I am lazy) and served it with Whip cream instead for the white. I also used a mix of blueberries, raspberries and blackberries, because I was not about to sort through my package of frozen mixed berries. This recipe is Keto friendly and gluten free. Not as pretty as traditional scones, but that is the nature of gluten free baked goods sometimes.

Class or Challenge Title: Detention - WIP #1
House: Hufflepuff
Project Name & Page Link: Minifee Pullover
Brief Description: With all the zoom meetings happening in the past couple months it has been helpful to have a fairly mindless knitting project on hand to keep from gouging your eyes out. I had hoped to submit this for an expired prompt but wasn’t fast enough finishing. Detention WIP it is!

Class or Challenge Title: Hermione’s Book Club Chapter 11
House: Hufflepuff
Project Name & Page Link: Doll Dress, as usual
Brief Description: This dress is made out of leftover quilt binding, which means I barely had to do any cutting prior to sewing - just straighten a few edges that were raveling.

Class or Challenge Title: Quidditch Match 3 - Ballycastle Bats
House: Hufflepuff
Project Name & Page Link: Take a wild guess!
Brief Description: Is anyone surprised at this point?
