Paleo red velvet cookies do exist and if you ask me they are quite delicious. Now, how about we up the paleo cookie ante a little bit by making mustache paleo red velvet cookies? I double dog dare you to create this rare cookie breed of epic proportions. (Okay, I might be exaggerating a little but epic proportions paints the deeeelicious picture for all of the paleo skeptics out there.) For serious man, these cookies are soo good. <~ I say that in real life so get off me. 🙂

Here is a sassy party tip from me to you- parties are almost guaranteed to be poppin‘ when mustache cookie cutters are involved! Keep in mind party planning is all about pre-sen-ta-tion! People eat pretty food so go buy yourself a mustache cookie cutter set, throw a wicked party, and come back to tell me how cool your friends thought your party was!
I just had to take this picture. I’ve always wanted fun facial hair (for a VERY quick minute) and the mustache was begging me to twirl the delicate
hairs coconut flakes between my manly looking fingers. I do believe mustache twirling falls into the category of wanting to play with things you don’t have yourself… sort of like… oh nevermind. 🙂
And for the record, a curled mustache you can eat actually DOES classify as something with epic proportions! Just sayin’.
