Fantastic Beasts of Birthday Mischief

The ‘Birthday Mischief’ collaboration group are BACK with their second, hotly anticipated, sugar-art installment. This group of talented sugar artists have re-assembled – with a few new recruits-to celebrate the newest screenwriting debut and movie trilogy of famed author, J.K.Rowling. “Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them” is the inspiration behind the ‘Birthday Mischief’ group’s latest sugar offering. This collaboration event can be found online at

Chef Mitchie Curran of Mitchies Munchies in Las Vegas, NV and Suzanne Neri-Medal of The CAKELDY in San Jose, CA are the Wizarding geniuses behind this impressive collection of sugar art. Potter fans are encouraged to participate in the ‘beastly’ fun by sharing their own Wizardly creations using the following hasthtags #FBofBirthdayMischief #BirthdayMischief #CongratsJKR

Here are a small selection of the vast collection of impressive edible sugar creations to “tickle your tastebuds”.

Christina Danner

Occamy by Christine Danner, Photography by Nicole Jackson Photography

Christine Danner of Supreme Sweets created this incredible sugar Occamy. This plumed, legged, serpentine creature features a pair of impressive wafer paper wings. She appears to be rather viciously protecting her nest! Watch out Wizards!

Corinna Maguire

Nundu by Corinna Maguire

Corinna Maguire of Lovin’ from the Oven created this ‘Skulking’ Nundu. This large leopard like beast  emits a toxic gas through vents in its mouth. Hopefully the sugar version isn’t quite so toxic!

Erin Schwartz

FireCrab by Erin Schwartz

Erin Schwartz of Stacked Cakes School created this gorgeously colorful and even more gorgeously cute FireCrab, Erin Says, ” I was so honored to share the illustrious FireCrab with the world as part of the Birthday Mischief Managedcollaboration!” He’s certainly a colorful little fellow!

Cynthia Lorow

The Jarvey by Cynthia Lorow

Cynthia Lorow of The Vagabond Baker Custom Cakes and Sweets created this wonderful sculpted bust cake of  the infamous Jarvey, Cynthia says, “The Jarvey doesn’t have a proper name, but simply calls himself Jarvey (they can speak); much like an uninspired or exhausted mum might name the family’s new feline “Kitty”. The Jarvey spends most of his day beneath the sodden ground of Britain’s farmlands and forests, coming out only to feed on moles and gnomes or to bombard a weary farmer with his scurrilous remarks delivered rapidly and thoughtlessly. Woe to the hapless human who surprises this boorish beast, as a startled Jarvey has been known to sink his sharp teeth into the tender flesh of an ear or an ankle drawing blood and rancor whilst hurling insults at his victim through blood stained teeth.” This one certainly seems to have been spooked judging by the victim’s expression!

Isabel Tamargo

Redcap by Isabel Tamargo

Isabel Tamargo of Tartas Imposibles created this wonderful sculpted Redcap. This mischievous little fellow likes to live in small groups and go hunting. He looks rather smug- I can’t help but wonder what he’s up to! Isabel used modeling chocolate and satin ice fondant over an internal structure to create her realistic sugar piece.

Karen Keaney

Fairy by Karen Keaney

Karen Keaney of Roses and Bows Cakery created this wonderful fairy figurine, discussing her piece for the collaboration Karen says, “This is Luna Dewdrop the Fairy, although she is very tiny she is very feisty. She loves to groom herself and takes great care in her appearance. She has the ability to change wing color to co ordinate with her chosen outfit. She is quite happy residing at the bottom of my garden and I’m happy to have her there as she is quite good at keeping the pests such as slugs and snails under control.” She definitely looks like she has Karen’s snail problem under control!


Kneazle by Sachiko Windbiel

Sachiko Windbiel of Mimicafe Union created a Kneazle, this part cat and part money creature has a remarkebly “human” looking face. Sachiko informs us, “When you expect them to MEOW, they actually laugh”. That laugh would definitely have us spooked!


Ugurey by Kay Gajra


Kay Gajra of Kaykes created this amazing sculpted Ugurey. “His name is Frederick the Fifth,” notes Kay. “He is a bit of a posh bird with a lot of heirs and graces.” Ugurey’s are stunning flying creatures that enjoy eating a snake or two, so the Occamy better watch out!
