The Hungry Hippopotamus

Stephanie Kappel, the owner and cookie artist at The Hungry Hippopotamus, believes that cookies are tiny works of delicious art. Stephanie dabbles in a lot of different artistic mediums, but found a true passion in 2009 when she discovered cookie decorating. What started as a hobby, quickly blossomed into a business that allows for the perfect marriage of technical skill, artistic expression, and visible affection. The time, care, and love that goes into each beautifully, delicious bite is what she believes makes giving and receiving cookies so special. When Stephanie isn’t making cookies or teaching cookie art classes, she can be found in the gym (practicing yoga), on the couch (watching her favorite sport, football), or at the park (exploring with her son, Carter and husband, Ryan).
