I made Hippo Sugar Cookies for my friend Melena's class. She teaches preschool and on the last day of school she wanted to send the children home with a sweet little something. Her class is the "Happy Hippos". I found a cute little cookie cutter online. Hippo-Cookie-Cutter
I used the same recipe as I did for my Valentine's Day Cookies. I bagged each cookie individually and put stickers on them that say "Have a great Summer". My friend Erica designed the stickers. Thank you Erica!!
On the back of the wax paper bags, I placed another sticker, that Erica designed for me, with my information on it. Everything was Hippo-y! I loved making these cookies!
Melena decided at the last minute she wanted just a few cupcakes to go with her cookies. Not a problem!
I made her some Lemon Cupcakes. These came out so good. I was in the middle of making a Lemon Lust Cake out of The Cake Book by Tish Boyle, so it worked out wonderfully!
The raspberries were a fun added element. Hope you are all having a great weekend!
