Wigby, also known as the Dessert Master, was a house-elf that worked at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry by the 21st century.[1]


Wigby was born at some point before 2008. He was passionate about his work and liked to prepare various desserts for Hogwarts students, often at night and especially for those who had complimented his culinary skills. The desserts were shaped in ways that he found to be perfect and were enchanted with house-elf magic that made them move when shaped like magical creatures.[1]

In 2010, Wigby was cleaning a student's dorm room at night, when the student woke up, disturbed by their dream of eating cakes endlessly. Wigby asked whether the cake was delicious, since they often said his pastries were the stuff dreams were made of. When he got a positive answer, he asked whether he could visit the student more often, as their dreams were very helpful, to which the student also said yes.[1]

Wigby was later visited by this student in the kitchens and talked to them about the trifle he was working on. The student offered to ask around for preferences of ingredients and decorations to perfect the trifle.[1]

Behind the scenes

  • Players of Harry Potter: Magic Awakened can summon Wigby when duelling or fighting. Wigby has the ability to make desserts that have the properties of normal magical creatures but with only 50% health points.
