Mardi Gras Cookies Made Easy

A few years back, I made these Mardi Gras cookies. And although they were very time consuming, they remain one of my favorite creations to date. I’m so very fond of them.

I actually wrote a tutorial on how to make these masks, if you’re interested in taking a peek: https://sweetelizabeth.wordpress.com/2012/02/23/mardi-gras-cookie-masks/

But back to the business at hand. This year, I wanted to make sure I did some Mardi Gras cookies before I left on vacation (YES, say it with me “VACATION”) but I didn’t have enough time to take a stab at another elaborate mask set. But those purples, yellows, and greens – how could I not make Mardi Gras cookies?!?

Trouble was, I don’t own a mask cookie cutter. But then I looked through my cutters and my new Wilton set jumped out at me. It’s this one. The mustache and lips cutters could make perfect Mardi Gras masks.

The mustache cookie cutter becomes a very small and very thin mask:

And the lips cutter, when flipped, makes a great jester Mardi Gras mask:

I hope this can be helpful for my fellow don’t-own-a-mask-cutter cookie friends! Happy Mardi Gras!
