"May the odds be ever in your favor!"

Posted on 03/25/2012 by navygreen
So there’s this movie that came out this weekend. I’ve even heard it’s based on a book or three. “The Starvation Activities,” I think… right? (Synonyms provided by my boys, by the way.)

Nah, it’s The Hunger Games!

The Hunger Games Cookies.

Actually, I did read the books, after hearing about them for so long. And once I did, then I campaigned all of my closest friends to read them as well. Only some of them did, and the rest I’m “unfriending” shortly. ;-)

Soooooo, that meant that I needed to share these cookies with the world, where I could find even more “Hunger Games Diehards” like myself!

I have to say, I got SO excited when I saw the subject heading in the mod cue. Saw the movie only a few hours ago. You did such a wonderful job with these cookies.

I'm so glad! I got so excited when I originally heard there would be a movie release, and since then, I've just been waiting-waiting-waiting to make these cookies!

I actually scrambled to read the entire trilogy before seeing the movie. I always try to read the books before seeing the film. I did the same thing with the Millenium Trilogy before I saw The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo, but that was harder as each book is almost as long as the entire Hunger Games trilogy.

So have you now seen the movie yet?

These are brilliantly done! I am so impressed with you icing skills. How on earth do you free hand ice so well?!
navygreen 27th-Mar-2012 02:51 am (UTC)
Thank you! Let me be honest - it's a LOT of time & patience. Each of those District cookies took me about 15 minutes (probably more for the first 2 or so), and I made 26 of them (two for each District, as well as two for the Capitol). And so on and so forth. The Peeta/bread ones were easy-peasy!

I wish you'd been around when we were planning the Canadian premiere of The Hunger Games and were looking for themed baked goods to have in the green room!

LOL, just keep me in mind in 20 more months for 'Catching Fire,' as I plan to make more! You can always find me on Facebook, under my page: https://www.facebook.com/LifesABatch

Thank you so much! :-)

I didn't like the books, but I do like these cookies :D Going to watch the first movie anyway soon and these cookies seem to be a great snack *_*

My friend I went with the second time ate TWO cookies during the movie. I gave away all the rest to fellow fans in the crowds. :-D

these are great! Peeta would be proud, hehe :)
navygreen 27th-Mar-2012 02:55 am (UTC)
Awwww. :-)

Wow, these are amazing! How are you so good with frosting?!
navygreen 27th-Mar-2012 02:55 am (UTC)
Thank you so much! I promise it's lots of time & patience. I've been doing cookies for just over 2 years now, and I cringe when I look back on my earlier attempts!

i haven't seen the movie yet or read the books, but your cookies are amazing! i'm super, super impressed at the way you did all the district cookies - the decorations are fabulous.
navygreen 27th-Mar-2012 02:56 am (UTC)
Thank you! Those District cookies were nearly the death of me, lol.

These are fantastically INCREDIBLE!
navygreen 27th-Mar-2012 02:56 am (UTC)
Thanks so much! (Sidenote: I always grin when I see that DK icon!)

these are so amazing! Nice looking seals for all the districts, I love the details you put into them, I don't think i could eat them! You did an awesome piping job, my shaky hands are jealous :)
You are lucky, I couldn't get any of my friends to try the books. They all dismissed them as "That Twilight crap" so I have no one in RL to geek out with over this awesome series (and now movie!)

Poor Gale, he gets no love. Except from me. heehee
navygreen 27th-Mar-2012 06:31 am (UTC)
Thank you so much! I do wish the Twilight fandom hadn't turned off so many people to other books as they become "big," but alas. I hope some of your friends come around before the next one for you!
