Wizard's Cake Box

Wizard’s cake and sweet boxes

It was the success of Honeydukes, Hogsmeade’s most famous sweet shop, that led three brothers to set up their magical sweet treat and cake shops: Cherrie en Toppe, famous for its delicious french cakes, Suckitt and Humbug, renowned for its amazing sweets, and Trikor Treatz, the place to go for magical treats that were guaranteed to surprise you. Instead of Hogsmeade, they chose the village of Cirenlongly, in southern England (Britain’s second most magical town) for their shops, so as not to compete directly with Honeydukes.

Each shop had its own distinctive box, but being brothers, they followed each other’s designs. Now for the first time, you can make these boxes simply and quickly from a single sheet of A4 or US Letter sized paper. Use thick paper if you have it and even light card (you do not need thick card). Cut out as accurately as you can, but pay particular attention to the folding, because it is the folding that gives the box is neat appearance and shape.
. . . The three brothers baked and made all manner of delicious treats, sweets and cakes and came to be known for their excellence throughout the wizarding world. You can make these boxes you can pack and keep your small cakes, sweets and treats just like a wizard, or for a lovely gift for that special person. You can even make a treat or two of your own to put in the boxes. Have a look in our cooking with kids section and see what you can find.

Gorgeous Cake Box graphic printables are available in both A4 and US Letter sizes, but first you might need the folding instructions. The folding instructions come in both US Letter size and A4. You will need one set of folding instructions and then one or more of the delicious colour printables to cut out and fold up. Just click on the size that you want, to download.

Wizardry and Magic
golden snitch model
Harry Potter is all done. Of course there are rumours of an eighth book and the fact that we still have two films to go (as the last film will be split into two). It's going to be a long summer, but November will come round soon enough and the bitter sweet joy of seeing another HP film will be tempered by the fact that there is definitely only one more after that. Nevertheless, while you wait, there’s always more than enough magic in the air for you to recreate events at Hogwarts, the Burrow or the Ministry of Magic, by making your own models of Hogwarts wizarding paraphernalia.
wizards wands models Homemade wizard’s wands, Golden Snitches, or beautiful writing quills and loads of other Potteresk things are all here, ready for you to download on dadcando.

lyras model alethiometerEven if you’re just a muggle and have had enough of Harry Potter, there are plenty of other magical fantasy stories to keep you interested in the Magical Art of Making. All the Chronicles of Narnia are all being turned into films, as are the stories of Lyra in the books of His Dark Materials trilogy. Whenever we see interesting things in these films and stories, we will bring you them as best magical fantasy craft projects, so that you can turn your hand to making magic, and conjuring up some really cool stuff to amaze your friends.

Victorian domed glass case made from soda bottle real writing phoenix quillNow you can make your very own Victorian Domed glass display case, from a 2 litre soda bottle, to display all your favourite projects and artifacts really beautifully. With our simple instructions, the results of just an afternoon's making will be really cool, good enough to be film props in fact, and better than anything you can buy, because you made it yourself.

Or why not make a beautiful writing quill from either a hippogryph, phoenix or snowy owl feather . And because no quill would be complete without its own ink pot, there are also some easy to follow instructions and printables, for making the most fantastical, magical Ink-pots.
