How to Make Harry Potter Cupcakes

To decorate your harry potter cupcakes, start by lining a large baking sheet with waxed paper.

This will be your working space for making the golden snitch wings. 

Melt your vanilla almond bark according to the directions on the package. Put the melted bark into your piping bag already fitted with the find circular tip. 

Pipe the bark into the shapes of snitch wings onto the wax paper.

While the bark is still well, sprinkle your wing shapes with the golden sugar sprinkles. 

Make enough to give each of your cupcakes 2 wings each, so at least 24 wings total for 12 cupcakes. 

I do suggest making a few extra in case some of them break.

Making the golden snitch wings

Allow the wings to set completely. You can pop them in the fridge for a bit if you are in a hurry. 

Once your wings are dry, gently remove the wings from the wax paper and set aside.

You can pour the leftover sprinkles back into a bowl, as you’ll need lots of golden sprinkles in the next couples of steps too, 

Using your large scoop (or spoon) drop big rounded balls of frosting onto each of the cupcakes. 

Icing harry potter cupcakes

Use a butter spreader (or even a butter knife would work) spread the frosting to the outer edges of the cupcake, leaving a big rounded mound of icing.

Now pour the rest of your sprinkles all into one bowl larger than your cupcakes, because we are about to turn these plain cupcakes, into golden snitches!

Dip each of the cupcakes upside down into the golden sprinkles, covering the vanilla icing full to create round golden balls on the top of your cupcakes.
