Sweets make everything better - ask professor Lupin if you don’t believe us. In Prisoner of Azkaban, when Harry gets knocked out by a vicious dementor on the train, Lupin straight away hands the boy a piece of dark chocolate, followed by some words of wisdom - “eat, you’ll feel better”. And at APCA, we totally back professor Lupin on this statement!

Think about it - if something sweet can lift the spirits of a disoriented, dementor-attacked wizard in no time, it can definitely make your “muggle gathering” a lot better. But then again, who likes to spend half the time preparing one? After all, parties are meant to be enjoyed candidly - just like Harry Potter movies. So, we have come up with a solution.

Check out this blog to find some beautifully mouth-watering 30-minute desserts for parties and gatherings. Quick disclaimer: while these sweet treats won’t take longer than half an hour to get ready, don’t blame us if they get finished in the blink of an eye. Now, let’s start!
