Madamme Kora Phaseolus - Corinna Maguire
Madamme Kora Phaseolus (born sometime between 1840 and 1885) A pure blood witch from the evil Vir Gladium family, with a history steeped in the dark arts. Madamme Kora was infamous for her mastery of magical hypnosis and potions. During her time at Hogwarts, sales at Honeydukes Sweet Shop of Hogsmeade plummeted by 25%. Sales would have dropped further had Madamme Kora’s delicious concoctions not been reserved solely for her classmates in Slytherin house. Later in life she was caught practicing the Imperius curse on a peanut butter cupcake. Captured by dementors, she spent 40 years in Azkaban. On her release she broke away from the Vir Gladium family, intent on reforming her character. She jumped from job to job working as a waitress in The Hog’s Head and a mascot for the Canadian Quidditch team. Nowadays she can be found working away in her own cake shop, ‘Cakes from the Cauldron’, where the competition between her concoctions and those of Honeydukes is as fierce as ever.
A self employed Graphic Designer originally from Alberta, Canada. Corinna is now settled in the west coast of Ireland with her husband and 2 kids. She always enjoyed baking and eventually a good friend asked her to make a Wedding Cake 8 years ago. It was a hit with everyone and that’s where the addiction with cakes began. With each cake she kept pushing her limits in collaborations and competitions and is now teaching cake decorating classes locally and internationally and loving it.
