The Cauldron Cake was a popular wizarding cake variant. Cauldron Cakes were mass-produced in Pakistan by Qizilbash Quality Confectionary from 1854 onward.[1] They could be bought from the Honeydukes Express trolley on the Hogwarts Express or at Honeydukes Sweetshop in Hogsmeade. Some witches and wizards, like Bathilda Bagshot, made their own homemade batches of Cauldron Cakes.

History

CauldronCakes2

Some Cauldron Cakes.

1890s

Sometime during the 1890s, Albus Dumbledore's mother, Kendra Dumbledore, slammed the door in Bathilda Bagshot's face when she came to bring the new neighbours a batch of homemade Cauldron Cakes. This incident was cited in Rita Skeeter's biography of Albus Dumbledore.

1991

Harry Potter bought some Cauldron Cakes, along with every other sweet on the Hogwarts Express food trolley, on his first journey on the Hogwarts Express on 1 September, 1991. He shared his sweets with Ron Weasley, who did not have the money to buy his own.

1992

A Cauldron Cake was seen on the floor when Mrs Norris was found petrified.

1994

On 1 September 1994, Harry Potter bought a large stack of Cauldron Cakes from the trolley to share with his friends. Ron later squashed one of them into a pulp in anger after Draco Malfoy mocked him.

Behind the scenes

  • In the PC versions of the video games, cauldron cakes along with pumpkin pasties can be collected and traded, much to the Honeydukes Chef's dismay (acting similar to a dollar foil to Bertie Bott's Every Flavour Beans in a sense).
    • Though in other versions of the video games, they act as healing items. They also normally appear as actual miniature cauldrons with stuffing inside (only the cauldron part is rendered in a non-edible way). The colours of both the "cauldron" itself and its stuffing vary per video game.
