Yeast breads, pastries, cakes, and cookies are transformed into Mandrake Bread, Sorting Hat Cupcakes, Wand Breadsticks, and more. Color photos of these creations adorn each page along with stills from the movies, elevating this baking book’s shelf appeal. Also throughout the book are colorful text boxes with “Top Tips” that provide extra help for young chefs and “Magical Facts” that supply movie trivia.
