Malaysia’s Sheryl Bito (Buns in The Oven Cupcakery), Jessica Ting (Ms. Shortcakes), and William Tan (Ipoh Bakery) are joined by award-winning baker Lara Clarke and other cake decorators from around the world in creating edible Harry Potter fan art to celebrate the occasion.

Clarke, who hails from Walsall, has made a life-size chocolate bust of Harry Potter using two kilograms each of flour, butter and sugar, plus 15 eggs, BBC reported.

Her cake will be featured at Birthday Mischief Managed alongside Bito, Ting and Tan’s creations.
