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:

The mustache cutter is pretty straightforward.......just flip it upside down and you have a mini Mardi Gras mask.
The finished products......
The whole collection of Mardi Gras cookies, 2014 edition:
And Mardi Gras 2014 Cajun style.......
and some 'Throw me somethin' crawfish.
Happy Mardi Gras!
