14 epic pieces of edible ‘Harry Potter’ food art made by fans.

Rowling will be getting a few birthday wishes from fans today, we’re willing to bet she’ll only get one life-size, edible bust of Harry Potter’s head. Rowling brought the tales of her beloved characters to fans all across the world, creating an intricate, magical world for readers to fully immerse themselves in.

After all, it’s been 17 years since the beloved writer released the first of her books about the wizarding world, and she hasn’t stopped impressing and inspiring us since. A group of food artists from around the world collaborated to create some seriously impressive Potter-themed food art in celebration of the author’s 50th birthday, ranging from large character sculptures to intricate recreations of key scenes from the books. The birthday of one of the most well-known fictional characters in modern literature is also the perfect excuse to pay homage to Daniel Radcliffe, or more specifically his incredibly refreshing criticism of the sexualisation of his co-star, Emma Watson, who was 11-years-old when she joined the Harry Potter series.

In this clip, Rowling – who began the journey wanting to learn more about her French roots – discovers that following a wartime invasion by German soldiers, her family had a risky, life-altering decision to make. The 26-year-old explained his frustration at being described as the “unconventional” romantic hero in films after his turn as a wizard during an interview with the Associated Press. “Eventually I got bored of hearing that, so I kind of picked someone up on that, so I was like, ‘What about me is unconventional? Because his birthday fell during Hogwarts’ holidays, Harry waited eagerly for birthday owl posts from his friends – which came in the form of cards, letters, a broom servicing kit, Honeydukes chocolates and the snapping The Monster Book of Monsters. His comments came after Watson launched a rallying solidarity cry for men to join the fight for gender equality with her United Nations HeforShe campaign. It’s very sweet. “I could talk about the millions of lives Jo has enriched whether through the stories and characters she’s created or through the millions of pounds she’s given to charity,” Lewis wrote. “She’s a remarkable woman.

In addition to actively supporting a wide variety of causes, she even co-founded Lumos, a children’s organization devoted to making sure children in institutions are able to have a real family life. In 2008, she went on to write a supplemental story called “Tales of Beedle the Bard'; in 2011, she launched the website Pottermore; and in 2016, she’s bringing her hero back — this time to the London stage — in “Harry Potter and the Cursed Child.” Many of my friends had already read the first six and were waiting for the seventh, but I made a conscious decision not to start on the first one until all seven books were available. In any situation, I would have a “What would Dumbledore say?” moment or a “What would Harry do?” moment (although, in my case, it was more “What would Ron do?” He is my favourite). Your quote is the truest thing I’ve seen: “Whether you come back by the page or by the big screen, Hogwarts will always be there to welcome you home.” And I, an obsessed, dedicated Potterhead, will always love and stand up for The Book That Changed It All.

The year after, Severus might need a little gentle persuasion that, in the words of your wonderful mentor, “It is our choices that show what we truly are, far more than our abilities”.
