Harry Potter Butterbeer Cupcakes

Before I get into my latest baking adventure, I have to say that I am so so sad that Alan Rickman died. What a loss of such a great talent and person. I loved him in every movie I’ve seen with him in it. But, let’s be honest, my favorite role was him as Snape in the Harry Potter series. I read the majority of the books, and have seen all of the movies and I thought he portrayed Snape wonderfully and made him likable even when he wasn’t supposed to be. I’ve been wanting to re-read and re-watch the movies, and I think that now is a perfect time.
