How to Make Fondont "Harry Potter" Glasses
Use your own glasses as a way of measuring proportions. (glasses image by Allyson Ricketts from

Aside from the lightning bolt scar on his forehead, Harry Potter's most identifying characteristic are his glasses. When making a Harry Potter themed cake, you may choose to include Harry's glasses in your design. Using chocolate fondant rather than dying white fondant will make it easier to get a black shade. Once you get your pieces rolled out to the right width, making Harry Potter's glasses is just a matter of joining the pieces together like a puzzle.

Skill level:

Things you need

  • 1 cup chocolate fondant
  • 1 tablespoon icing
  • black food dye gel

  1. 1

    Find a picture of the Harry Potter glasses and print it out. You will use this image as a model for your fondant creation.

  2. 2

    Dye your chocolate fondant black using your gel food colouring. Start with three drops and add more as necessary until you reach your desired shade.

  3. 3

    Roll out four 4.5-inch-long pieces of fondant. Each piece should be an even width, about 1/4 inch each. Cut off the ends to make each piece 4 inches long total. Roll out one 3/4-inch piece for the part of the glasses that rests on the bridge of the nose. Reserve the remaining fondant in an airtight container.

  4. 4

    Make a circle with one of your rolled pieces of fondant. Make a second circle. Compare the two to make sure they're even.

  5. 5

    Take the two other pieces and bend them at one end to make the ear pieces of the glasses. Make the nose piece curved in the shape of a fingernail, using your photo for guidance. Allow all the pieces to harden for an hour or two hours depending on the humidity in your kitchen.

  6. 6

    Use small dots of icing to join your fondant pieces. Then, use your reserved, still-moist fondant to blend the joints. Set the finished glasses on a soft, forgiving surface so that none of the pieces flatten as they set.
