"Ace of Cakes,"a Food Network favorite, followed Remington's Charm City Cakes through 10 seasons of stress and laughter. Owner Duff Goldman and his talented team introduced viewers to the fast-paced world of custom cake-making, creating edible masterpieces such as the Hogwarts castle for the premiere of "Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix" and a replica of Radio City Music Hall for the Rockettes. Now, a year after the show's final season and currently busy with a new line of wedding cakes, executive chef Geof Manthorne, 37, reflects on life after the show, how the staff has changed and the future of Charm City Cakes.

Eight paces separate Harry Potter from Bunny Rabbit (a.k.a. Eminem) -- just eight steps between theaters at Hoyt's Cinemas in Hunt Valley, where both popular movies are playing. Watching Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets and Eminem's 8 Mile in the span of six hours is a pop-culture Festivus. Multiplex cinemas make for strange theatrical bedfellows. Both movies have been neck-and-neck at the box office. Children and adults have flocked to see the second installment in the Harry Potter series.

J.K. Rowling, who created the fabulously successful Harry Potter series of book -- and movies -- will publish her first adult novel, Little, Brown and Co. announced today. The title, date for  worldwide publication and further details about the novel will be announced later in the year, the publisher said. Rowling's website simply shows an enticing, mysterious, yellow book entitled "The New Book. " Clever, that. Rowling said in statement via the publisher, “Although I've enjoyed writing it every bit as much, my next book will be very different to the Harry Potter series ... . The freedom to explore new territory is a gift that Harry's success has brought me, and with that new territory it seemed a logical progression to have a new publisher.

As if making a motion picture of the "Harry Potter" books wasn't tough enough, try turning the popular series into a video game. Or four. Electronic Arts adapted J.K. Rowling's best-selling stories into interactive entertainment, but programmers quickly recognized that different hardware platforms required completely different games. So the company took the rare step of building each game from the ground up - even though all share the title Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone. With the help of Rowling, designers stayed true to the "Potter" canon while extending it and giving players more control over the story.

It's only been a week since the fourth Harry Potter book hit the shelves, but your kids have read every word on those 734 pages. Maybe even twice. If they're still itching for more from the magic world, conjure up a few Web sites by folks who could tear their eyes from J.K. Rowling's pages long enough to create them. Scholastic (www.scholastic. com/harrypotter/home.asp): The official Harry Potter home page includes an e-letter you can personalize and send from the Hogwarts School, a pronunciation guide and a screen saver that sketches and describes everything from the Whomping Willow to the Marauder's Map. Also included are trivia, book descriptions and an interview with the author.

When the Howarths moved two blocks to a new home in Pikesville last year, they looked out the kitchen window and knew they didn't want to see that view much longer. Their backyard looked like the heart of the woods. Weeds ran riot and wild grape vines thick as your wrist choked the trees. The shed roof sagged. Dan Howarth and his sons helped raise the roof on the shed and slash the bracken from the yard with machetes. Debbie brought home plants rescued from nurseries and construction sites, and their six children helped plant them.

So you can't quite get to the village of Hogsmeade, but you can chill with Harry Potter and his crew in some rather magical places online. Like Harry's, your first stop at a wizard hangout should be the-leaky-cauldron.org. There you'll find news of the movie, to open Friday. The Leaky Cauldron links to www.hpgalleries.com, which leads to a number of interesting places. Some might call it a virtual Platform 9 3/4 . One place it leads to is www.hpgalleries.com/hol, where you'll find a Hogwarts-like wizard school.
