Welcome to Birthday Mischief Managed. We are Food Artists from around the world who have come together in celebration of world-renowned author, J.K. Rowling, in the sweetest way we know best.
Our second term celebrates J.K. Rowling's screenwriting debut and newest movie trilogy.
“Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them”, is an A to Z “textbook” of magical creatures that have been featured in the Potter film series and publishing’s of J.K. Rowling. For this collaborative effort some of the beasts were removed from the list inside the textbook and each artist was asked to create the remaining using only their imaginations and the book’s descriptions with sweet edible mediums. Each artist has dressed for the occasion and transformed themselves into "Magizoologist". Be sure to visit their pages and read the documents kept about their beast.
Our magical community, founded in July 2014, is comprised of some of the world’s most esteemed personalities and award winning artists in the food industry. Audiences may recognize work styles and faces among the group from hit television competitions and series Cake Wars, Duff Till Dawn, Amazing Wedding Cakes, and more. In 2015, we celebrated J.K. Rowling’s birthday on July 31st, which coincidentally is Harry Potter’s birthday, our artists chose locations inspired by the books and movies. An added challenge included incorporating one to three twists, “Easter Eggs” for J.K. and fans to find. Some of the sentiments included J.K.’s birthstone and favorite flowers (the Larkspur, Lily). Artists also included an orange support ribbon in memory of her mother which remains a tradition in our second term.
“Shortly after our debut in 2015, our group reassembled to plan a celebration for the much anticipated arrival of the newest Wizarding Trilogy. Witnessing the transformation of members into their characters was only half the fun. Our biggest challenge was resisting the urge to research, (cheat) pictures of our assigned beasts. The group has made sweet magic. My only regret is not having a pet Kneazle.” - Michelle "ChefMitchie" Curran aka Michaeleas Cuuragusta, Headmistress
