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.

For some I iced the cookies with a knife, and then decorated them with chocolate sprinkles.

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.
