Mustache Cookies: sugar cookies on lollipop sticks with chocolate icing and sprinkles are the perfect and most delicious disguise to wear to a party.
I thought it would be fun to make some mustache cookies for Alexander’s Mustache Bash, that I shared with you here, and wanted to show you how I made them. They’d be cute for pretty much any occasion, and let me tell you, they went fast at the party. 😉
I started out by making my regular sugar cookies, you can find the recipe here. Roll out the dough to be fairly thick, it gives the cookies a little more stability on the lollipop stick.

I used the Crustache cutter, which is really for cutting the crust off of sandwiches. It worked great as a cookie cutter too, and made cutting the cookies really quick, since it’s three cut-outs in one.
After I cut out the dough, I set a lollipop stick under the middle, placing it as high up as possible on the cookie, and pressing it into the dough slightly. I was a little worried that the baked cookies would be very breakable, so I iced them really carefully. There were a few that did break during transport to the party, but for the most part they worked out fine.
Now for the really fun part, icing the cookies. I made a really simple chocolate icing.
- 1/2 cup softened butter
- 1/4 cup cocoa powder
- 2 1/2 cups icing sugar
- 1/2 tsp vanilla
- 1 -2 tbsp milk
- In a mixer combine butter and cocoa powder. Add icing sugar, vanilla, and milk. Beat slowly until fully combined.
- Beat on high for a few minutes until it's smooth and fluffy.

I really love how whisker-y they looked. And, as a general rule, all kids LOVE sprinkles, so they’re always a hit with the littles at a party.
My second idea was to use the grass icing tip -Wilton tip #233 (that I bought to make the Oscar the grouch cupcakes way back here) to make long icing whiskers.
There was a little learning curve here. I stared out trying to make short whiskers, but it didn’t look so good. Here’s the method that worked best for me: starting on one side, do the outside set of whiskers, starting about 1/3 of the way from the bottom and dragging the icing to the end.
Over lap with a second row, about 2/3 from the bottom, and a final row from the centre. Do the same thing on the other side.
I love how they turned out. They were delicious and so cute.
And, who doesn’t look cute with a mustache?
With cookies this good, that double as a disguise if needed, life really is a party!
