Sept. 1 is “Back to Hogwarts Day,” when the wizarding students in the Harry Potter universe board a train at Platform 9¾ and head to school for another year of potions, charms and herbology. Erin Jeanne McDowell created this witchy twist on a classic croquembouche (a tower of caramel-dipped cream puffs) has a solid base of cream puffs to create a rim, giving the tower a shape similar to that of the Hogwarts Sorting Hat, which sorts new students into their respective houses. The cream filling is tinted colors to reflect the colors of the four houses they can be sorted into: red (Gryffindor), yellow (Hufflepuff), Green (Slytherin) and blue (Ravenclaw). Guests pull a cream puff from the tower and bite in to discover the color of their appointed house. For an even more epic tower (as seen in the video), double the recipe in the comments below.
