She has also used LED lights and icing sugar to give the cake a more Christmassy aesthetic.

Interesting details such as grape stems for baron winter trees add more level of realism to the castle.

Lisa said: ‘I love baking, I love Harry Potter and I haven’t made many gingerbread houses before but it seemed like a fun activity so I went for it.

‘It ended up being a busier than expected holiday baking season for me so I was afraid I wouldn’t have time to finish.

‘Sometimes I surprise myself with what I’m actually capable of doing.

‘I knew it was going to be a fun project but I had no idea that it would turn out as amazing as it did.

‘My husband was a huge help with the building measurements to be able to make it the castle to scale.

The magical seven-storey castle is home to the students of Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry. 

The adventures of the clever wizard have sparked Harry Potter mania across the world with six sequels, 500 million copies sold and hit movie adaptations starring Daniel Radcliffe.
