Recipe by Sprinkle Bakes

In 'The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe', Edmund is by the White Witch's magical Turkish Delight -and if it looked as delicious as the above pics, we're sure we'd be spellbound too!

 

2. Sansa's Lemon Cakes from the Game of Thrones series

Recipe by The Geeky Chef

Lady Sansa Stark's obsession with lemon cakes is a recurring theme in the 'Game of Thrones' series. Growing up in the North, citrus fruit would have to be imported from the South, thus making the cakes a very exotic and extravagant treat. In this sense, they represent the kind of life that Sansa aspires to -glamourous, refined, luxuriant. We especially love the pretty lemon slices on the recipe above.

 

3. Cherry Pistachio Baked Alaska at the Capitol from 'The Hunger Games'

Recipe by Yummy Books

As its title might suggest, food (or lack thereof!) is a frequent point of interest in 'The Hunger Games'. Whilst the baked alaska in never explicitly named, the description of a 'gorgeous looking cake' which 'blazes up' in flames, could, according to super-sleuth baker Cara at Yummy Books, only be referring to baked alaska. This gloriously decadent dessert certainly wouldn't look out of place at the Capitol!

 

4. The Mad Hatter's Tea Party from 'Alice's Adventures in Wonderland'

  

Recipe by Sprinkle Bakes

We're loving all the intricate details on this Mad Hatter's Tea Party-inspired spread! Check out the link for mouthwatering 'eat me' cookies, fondant top hats and more!

 

5. Pumpkin Juice from the Harry Potter series

Recipe by The Geeky Chef

Trying to cut back on the sugary treats? You can still get in on the fun with this fab pumpkin juice recipe. A breakfast staple throughout the Harry Potter series, this version includes a sprinkling of cinnamon and tastes just like Autumn.

 

6. Meg's Currant Jelly and Country Bread from 'Little Women'

Grab yourself a slice of idyllic country life with this make-it-from-scratch snack. In 'Little Women', poor Meg's attempt to make red currant jam ends in disaster, and leaves the kitchen looking like a bloodbath. Luckily, with this recipe you can giggle smugly at Meg's mishap whilst chowing down on your own delicious, hand-crafted sandwich.
