|me and my dad, circa 1983. Sweet "stache", Tom!|
|this picture was taken in the same kitchen that I bake in today! Minus the wallpaper of course :)|
|30 years later! I've never seen my dad a single day without a mustache!|
This customer was super-easy to work with because he was so open to my suggestions and just let me design as I wished. Love when that happens! He did want the cookies on sticks kind of like masquerade masks where the stick is off centered and you can hold it up to your face. Brilliant!
I baked at least 15 extra because I was nervous about the mustaches being too narrow to stay on the stick. But I supported the back of each cookie with some extra dough and they were really quite sturdy on the stick.
And then I decorated a bunch of extra ones, too....because they were just so much fun to make! Mia and I got so many laughs from playing with the extra ones. She was running around saying "I look like Pap-Pap!!" And then she looked in the mirror and really shocked herself with what she saw. lol. She is seriously the funniest kid ever.
|"I look like Pap Pap!"|
|It took her a second to figure it all out....and then she just ate the cookie|
|yes yes....I took my picture, too. I don't even care how silly I look (and seriously exhausted, too!)|
Hope you enjoyed! Have a really great 4th of July!! I'm making almond pound cake and cutting it into stars with my cookie cutters! Thank you Pinterest!
