Duff Goldman and the talented Charm City Cakes crew are wizards with a whisk, so when they were approached to make the cake for Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2 New York premiere party, Duff pulled out all of his tricks.

The cake, which is a replica of the wizarding school Hogwarts, is "on fire" --it even included smoke special effects (check out the photo here). Rupert Grint, the actor who plays Ron Weasley, had the honor of cutting the first slice.

According to Duff's Twitter feed, the cake took him and his crew two weeks to make. Duff also reassured his fans that while they make all the decorations ahead of time, the cake doesn't get baked until the very end.

Catch Duff on his new show, Sugar High, starting Monday, August 8, at 10:30 p.m. Eastern/ 9:30 p.m. Central.
