Mustache cookies!

It’s time get our fun on again. Enough of this dawdling with names, layouts and such.
Let’s get back to the business of doing cool stuff.

So…I have sponsors now. Epically cool strangers that pay me to have their little button in my sidebar.
I work for them.
Well, seems to have forgotten that I do stuff FOR THEM!
And, yeah…I am not feeling like a reminder needs to happen. Nope.

Cause, I got this in the mail yesterday…


Oh yeah baby…I’m all over that!

Just because I don’t have mustaches all over my blog does not diminish my love of them.
They are just…quirky. Love!

Two new things happened yesterday afternoon.


1. Mustache Cookies were made.

I’ve never made mustache cookies before. This was new. And WAY fun.
Cookies are just better when made into mustaches. Who says facial hair isn’t sexy?

2. Cookie icing was made.

I’ve never made cookie icing before. You know the kind that is all runny and dries hard and shiny.
And I wanted brown or black. But, I didn’t buy any color.
I figured I would just make brown the way you do with watercolors…mix it all up.
Umm…not recommended. Lesson learned.

I would love to share my recipes. But…I just went to AllRecipes and found the top rated.
I still don’t have a sugar cookie recipe I love. You can share yours with me. I would love to try them!

But, these cookies are fun. And of course they tasted good!
Thank you to my great sponsor!!
No, I don’t think everyone has such great sponsors. I know I kinda stink myself.


Aren’t we just the cutest!

Here is some info from Marcella:

I love, Love, LOVE baking and cake/cupcake decorating. It is my
passion and my all time favorite past-time…Luckily my love for art
and anything sweet has enabled me to experiment extensively in the
kitchen…lots of trial and error (over 15 years and counting!).

I am always on the hunt for perfect baking cups (of course), tools,
and ideas to help turn any baking trial into something that much more

just SUGAR COAT IT! was created to bring you the best of both worlds.
We have a huge selection of baking cups, tulip baking cups, tools, and
accesories that will turn your baking project into a work of art.
We specialize in providing bulk baking cups to bakeries and offer a
bakery discount program.

[email protected] for more information.

In case you didn’t catch it, Marcella is a baking goddess.
She could make a cupcake to look like your toes, Grandma, or whatever.
She’s that good.
A bit of her work…

right?? how great is that?


sigh. I love cupcakes. these look like mini works of art.
That I want in my belly…NOW!


Anyways, Marcella is a baking goddess and created a website called just SUGARCOAT IT
to sell her favorites of baking tools, equipment, liners, sugars, you name it!
And this girl knows what I want. Even before I knew what I wanted.
Smartie pants!
Maybe it’s cause she MAKES yummy cupcakes that she knows her stuff? probably.
