Butterflies, A Mustache, and Mardi Gras


What does one have to do with the other you may ask?

Nothing really, other than the fact that I used butterfly cutters  and a mustache cutter to make my Mardi Gras 2014 edition cookies.  

I know this post is coming after Fat Tuesday, but hey.....it's a new post!  And for me, that's quite an accomplishment.

So.....when looking for cutters for this year's cookies, I knew I wanted to add a lil' Cajun flair with the crawfish and alligator theme, but I also was looking for a different Mardi Gras mask.  Not wanting to hand cut, and disliking the mask cutter that I own because the dough always gets stuck and I hate having to deal with that, I did what Sugarbelle does and went looking through the collection to re-purpose a cutter into a mask.

Enter the butterfly and mustache cutters:





                       

This is how I re-purposed the 2 butterfly cutters to make a Mardi Gras mask:










The mustache cutter is pretty straightforward.......just flip it upside down and you have a mini Mardi Gras mask.



The finished products......

And Mardi Gras 2014 Cajun style.......

                 alligators











     and some 'Throw me                somethin' crawfish.





Happy Mardi Gras!
