‘Harry Potter’ Cake Competition


Their chosen arena is more Hospitality than Hogwarts, but a baker’s dozen of Penn College students proved themselves wizards all the same in designing cakes inspired by the Harry Potter books and movies. After being judged in the sixth annual competition Thursday, the colorful creations initially were displayed in the Thompson Professional Development Center, then moved to the Madigan Library as part of the community Harry Potter’s World exhibit. Students in the competition, which is sponsored by CalJava International, are enrolled in an advanced cake-decorating course taught by Suzann L. Major, assistant professor of baking and pastry arts/culinary arts.
