11 'Harry Potter' Desserts Fans Can Bake For Harry’s Birthday, Like The Dursleys NEVER Did

"Chocolate, in my most humble opinion, is the most inexhaustible source of magic we have." — Dumbledore, probably

Harry Potter's birthday is July 31, making it a perfect time for muggles to indulge in some sugary treats. After all, everyone knows that calories don't count on your birthday... or your friends' birthdays... or Harry Potter's birthday. Seriously, that's a fact. Look it up.

And once you're done doing that, get to your kitchen. You're going to want to start baking before you even finish reading this.

Accio oven mitts!

Butterbeer Cupcakes

What combination could possibly be better than butterbeer and cupcakes? I'll wait.

Cauldron Cakes

We can't all travel to The Wizarding World of Harry Potter every time we want a cauldron cake. Luckily, now we won't have to. This recipe comes deliciously close to the one from Honeydukes.

Sorting Hat Cupcakes

Why get sorted by Pottermore, when you can get sorted by M&M filled cupcakes instead? And if you aren't satisfied with your Hogwarts house, well, I guess you'll just have to eat another cupcake...

Chocolate Wands

OK, so these wands are really impractical for casting spells. Imagine shouting, "Accio chocolate," only to realize that you've accidentally eaten half of your wand. Awkward...

Exploding Bonbons

We all knew Pop Rocks originated from some sort of sorcery. This just proves it.

Pumpkin Pasties

This one's for my fellow basic bitches: We finally have an excuse to eat pumpkin flavored desserts a few months early.

Butterbeer Cookies

Remember when I told you that nothing could beat butterbeer cupcakes? There's a good chance that I lied to you. Sorry.

Golden Snitch Cake Pops

And to think, we all thought Harry was silly when he caught the Snitch with his mouth. Maybe he was onto something...

Weasleys' Fever Fudge

Sadly, this imitation of Weasleys' Wizard Wheezes won't get you out of class. But it will give you the sugar rush to stay awake during your 8 a.m., and that has to count for something.

Chocolate Frogs

The best part is that you won't need to catch these chocolate frogs before you eat them. See, being a muggle has some perks. Right? (Just humor me.)

THE Birthday Cake

Pro tip: Knock down a friend's door, shout "Yer a wizard, 'Arry!" and then share this cake with them.

Really, it's the only way to prove your love to someone.

At the end of their last episode, "Grey's Anatomy" teased the return of another character from Meredith's past. After the return of Patrick Dempsey's, Derek Shepherd, Grey's fans know that no one is off-limits.

The return of these characters comes after Meredith was diagnosed with COVID-19 and began experiencing hallucinations of her loved ones.

I love listening to Christmas music just as much as the next person, but when I turn on my local holiday radio station each year, it just feels repetitive. No hate to musicians like Burl Ives or Nat King Cole, but Christmas music needs an update. Personally, I'm tired of the same "Let It Snow" and "Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas". So plug in your Christmas tree, make some hot cocoa, and listen to these amazing (and updated) holiday songs.

10 Christmas Songs For Your Festive Playlist

I have no shame in starting to feel festive super early.


All of these songs are definitely popular. However, I have the strong opinion that having the songs on your Christmas playlist be popular is extremely important. Having everyone sing to the songs is most of the fun; it adds to the festivity of whatever you're doing.

Personally, I love to bake cookies and hum along as I cannot sing and no one should ever hear me. Whatever you do for the holidays, enjoy your festive time and the season!

5 Movies And TV Shows That Got Mental Illness Right​

There is a very fine line between representation for mentally ill people and demonizing them for the sake of entertainment. Hollywood has a tendency to sensationalize mental illness, but these shows and movies got it right.


At the risk of being dismissive of all the progress we've made, mental health representation is still seriously lacking. Many shows fall into the traps of making their mentally ill character violent, making professional help seem useless, or making characters who don't reflect the reality for people living with mental illness.
