Food hats that are actually Wearable? Go on to see what we made for the 2DCostumes exhibit reception.

Below are a set of chocolate shoes made for the same reception (filled with raspberry sauce, and served in a shoebox lined with whipped cream). These shoes were then smashed and served as pieces of dessert.
