Play with your Food!

I recently did a very fun project with some fellow cookie friends. Play with your Food! Picking a game and making it edible. Fun right? I think so. I picked Hungry Hungry Hippos. I used to play that game til my hand hurt when I was a kid haha.  Okay on to the project....

Started off baking the base and the sides. Then flooding the top of the base and both sides of the sides.
Then using royal icing to "glue" the sides down to the base. I also flooded the tops to hide the cookie part.
Flooding both sides of the Hippo cookies. Attaching and holding them into place with royal icing added to the 3D effect I wanted to achieve.
I used white Sixlets candies for the balls. They were perfect! I got a 1 lb bag online and they were so yummy I think they only lasted about a week lol. 
Every time I see these cookies I have the Hungry Hungry Hippo theme song in my head haha. Don't go looking for it because it is the kind of catchy song that will be stuck in your head all day!
