I'm such a wreck about the last book coming out that it didn't even occur to me to create something HP to eat, but now you mention it, Butterbeer cookies might be an idea...?

I'm an HP nut, i have to admit it!!! I'll definitely have to create something as a tribute to my most favorite fictional character!

this is fantastic!!! Thanks so much for choosing Harry Potter! icon_smile.gif My whole group of friends is basically anti-social the week after a book comes out... we're all at home, reading, and heaven forbid someone CALL or stop by, and interrupt that! I've been known to call in sick to work, in order to finish a book. icon_smile.gif My sweetie has already asked for time off, because he knows he'll be staying up all night, reading. icon_smile.gif

And nope... we don't have kids in the house. We're just big fans. icon_smile.gif

I'm so excited because my daughter, who's 11, is finally old enough to read the books. I've never been to a launch party, and obviously this is the last chance to go to one, so we're finding out where they all are and trying to decide which one to attend (and whether to dress up - I'm not normally 'that kind' of fan!!!). I'm so scared of being spoiled I won't be leaving the house or turning on the tv or pc until I've finished - fortunately I'm a fast reader!

very quietly - anyone into fan fiction?

Big Harry Potter fan here.
Can't wait to do a very Harry cake
But I think that Harry's birthday is the 21st, that is the reason for the release date of the book

Nope, Melvira is right... Harry was born "as the seventh month dies to parents who thrice defied the Dark Lord"... The book's release date was originally supposed to be 7/7/07 but they didn't want to rush the editing, so they pushed it back two weeks.

I just bought Debbie Brown's "Magical Cakes" and I'm trying to figure out how to make one of those designs more Potter-ish. Gretta, I love the idea of making a version of the Weasley house.

Horray for Harry! I think Harry Potter is an excellent choice! Our international friends will have more fun with it then a Fourth of July, patriotic theme anyway!

Harry's birthday is 31st July, because that is Jo Rowling's birthday.

My oldest child and I are both dying for the book. I get to read it first but I told him I'm doing nothing else that day so he can have it. I'm also going to have something easy on hand for dinner so he can cook, he's 8 and can do a few things. icon_twisted.gif

My entire household is sooo excited for all of this! I was at a party goods store yesterday & bought Harry Potter cups, plates, & a tablecloth, and got the cake pan for $5. DD asked if we were having a Harry Potter party and I said, well, I guess we are now icon_lol.gif I'm still not really sure how much I like the look of the pan, but figured the kids would get a kick out of it (and for $5, I'll take it). I'm thinking of lightening bolt cookies, snitch cookies, and wizard hat cookies. I love the wizard and owl cakes in Debbie Brown's books (when DD saw them she called them Dumbledore & Hedwig), but I don't think I'm ready to attempt them yet. DD just finished a week at Harry Potter camp, so she's dying for the last book. I told her I get it first and I'm not telling her what happens icon_twisted.gif

TubbsCookies, I'm with you - I won't go online starting the day before the book comes out until I'm finished reading. I do not want to know anything! I've thought of going to a release party, but DD is only 8 and really isn't into staying up until midnight. There is a Wiccan shop nearby that is having something that night though, which might be really neat.

Can't wait!

I am so excited to have a Harry Potter project to work on while I wait for the movie and book!!! I am trying to narrow down my ideas right now.

TubbsCookies:
Spoilers scare me too! Staying off line for a day or so before the release and until I finish the book is a good idea. I usually read fast, but this time I might go slower knowing it is the last one thumbsdown.gif

Can't wait to see what everyone posts!
