This Splendid Fairy Cake was made by Kendra Kesswell - Karen Keaney from Roses and Bows Cakery.
This Splendid Fairy Cake was made for the Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them Collaboration.
The collaboration of food artists from around the world, known as Birthday Mischief Managed have assembled to debut their second installment of edible art in celebration of world-renowned author, J.K. Rowling’s screenwriting debut and newest movie trilogy – “Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them”.
“Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them”, is an A to Z “textbook” of magical creatures that have been featured in the Potter film series and publishing’s of J.K. Rowling. For this collaborative effort some of the beasts were removed from the list inside the textbook and each artist was asked to create the remaining using only their imaginations and the book’s descriptions with sweet edible mediums. Each artist has dressed for the occasion and transformed themselves into "Magizoologist". Be sure to visit their pages and read the documents kept about their beast.
Our biggest challenge was resisting the urge to research, (cheat) pictures of our assigned beasts. The group has made sweet magic. My only regret is not having a pet Kneazle.” - Michelle "ChefMitchie" Curran aka Michaeleas Cuuragusta, Headmistress
Here is Karen’s description of this Fabulous Edible Beast:
This is Luna Dewdrop the Fairy, although she is very tiny she is very feisty. She loves to groom herself and takes great care in her appearance. She has the ability to change wing colour to co ordinate with her chosen outfit. She feeds on dewdrops and pollen from the locanoona plant. If you disturb her while she is feeding she is likely to bite or scratch you, the same thing may happen if you disturb her while she is sleeping. I have been bitten on one occasion as I accidentally disturbed her. It was just a surface graze so no need to go to the infirmary. She is quite happy residing at the bottom of my garden and I'm happy to have her there as she is quite good at keeping the pests such as slugs and snails under control.
