Hippo Cookies and Lemon Cupcakes!

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!
