Two of my favorite things: Harry Potter & Cupcakes

This story is proof that my co-workers are awesome. It was my birthday a few days ago. Dave told me he was going to make cupcakes and ran some flavor ideas past me. Then he asked me what I wanted on them. Our conversation went something like this:

Dave: So… What do you want on your delicious cupcakes?
Me: Icing?
Dave: Obviously, icing. What do you want on top of the icing?
Me: …
Dave: I want to put something you love on them. Puppies? Books? Sunshine and smiles?
Me: Make me Harry Potter cupcakes and I will die.
Dave: *grins*

So I wasn’t really sure what to expect, but holy cow. Check these out. Not only were they delicious but they were adorable too:

Ginny, Harry, Malfoy and Dumbledore
So that's Ginny and Harry. Along with an uber-blonde Malfoy and Dumbledore himself.
Harry and Voldemort
And here we have Harry and Voldemort (with a smudged eye) facing off
The Snitch, Snape, Harry, Malfoy, Kingsley
Um, could Snape look any more accurate? Also that's Kingsley in the corner. And Harry and Malfoy are both eying that Snitch.

Not shown, but decorated in all their glory, were additional cupcakes for Hermione, Hagrid and Ron. Man, I could not be happier. Hooray for literary goodness!
