Today is the birthday of one of my favorite characters in the Potterverse.
Dobby the House Elf.
Now, let me tell you a little secret. When Dobby first arrived in Chamber of Secrets Ididntlikehim.
What? C'mon. I am NOT alone here. He was a weird little annoying thing cause Harry all sorts of issues. I actually feared he was the Jar Jar Binks of the Wizarding World. Once he made it to the screen, I was even LESS convinced. However, time wore on, pages were read, love was built, tears were shed.
I apologize, deeply, and fully, dear Dobby. I'm sorry I thought such things of you. You were brave and loyal. You'd be a true Gryffindor. So, I made you some cake. It's Butterbeer flavor AND House Elf sized!!
I made this cake with a set of 4" Wilton pans. They come in a pack of three. Each pan takes about the same amount as 2 cupcakes. So, basically, this cake is 6 cupcakes big.
I used the rest of the batter to make cupcakes, because why not?
Happy Birthday, little guy! Tonight I raise a glass of Butterbeer to toast in your honor.
