The 20th anniversary celebration of the first Harry Potter film included a scale model cake of Hogwarts castle, a large, seven-storey building built in a valley area that featured in the fantasy movie franchise. The model cake, which was 6-foot wide, 5-foot tall, and weighed 100 kgs, was unveiled at Warner Bros Studio Tour in Leavesden, Watford, where much of the franchise was filmed. Artists and sculptors took 320 hours to make the cake with vegan-friendly ingredients. Warner Bros has donated the cake to One Vision, a local charity working to address the challenges of food poverty.
One Vision shared an image of the cake and the celebrations, saying they will ensure that the cake is distributed to their service users.
“Delighted to share the great news of our partnership with Warner Bros. We have been chosen as the charity to be a part of their 20th anniversary of the making of the film Harry Potter. We will ensure the cake will be distributed to our service users,” it tweeted.
