not too difficult, the base inside is sponge cake in layers, cut to form. the outside is a ganache cream - which was a bit iffy to work with. I already put less chocolate into the cream, but it was still a bit to hard and slightly crumbly, when whipped. well, Hogwarts is rather old and a bit damaged in places - it didn't matter after all:)) the pinnacles are made from Toblerone triangles and instead of windows I put bought shapes made from white chocolate on. the "grass" is green butter cream and this is how it looks after the wild hordes had their fun with it:
due to the ganache that didn't spread so well, the "floors" are a bit wonky, but the stairs inside Hogwarts move anyway - so this might be a picture in motion:)) I think it might be enough for tomorrow as well (no guests) - so I am free to spend my evening with embroidery instead of making more cake:))
I started a cross stitch project again - I haven't done a larger one for some time, but I am working in tandem with someone on this - we try to keep each other going by comparing progress:)) some of the bothy thread designs are really funny, have a look here:
I am making the dictionary of teas first, but I also have the one with bras here - and hope I can keep going through both of them....
I like word games - and the designs are not too large and complicated, so I am in with a chance to finish this within a reasonable time frame.
