The totally doable I have a life challenge! - Striped Mostachioed Macaroons

Hey there guys!! Man it feels a while since I've written one of these. Been busy ya'know, having a life ;) I know this challenge is well and truly over but to be real I actually finished the challenge before August was over but it takes me a while to get things up :/ Anyway today was stripes and um yeah here's more food. Side note: I was watching Modern Family as I was painting these and oh my gosh Haley and Andy are my new OTP, I was crying from cuteness and new season is coming out this month!! But not like I can watch it cause I don't have cable.

Originally I was going to do a fruit basket but then I realised a previous prompt was pineapples so it'd be a bit fruit overload. Also cute food never gets old with me. I actually really liked the stripes by themselves, they were very Battenberg-esque. The filling is intended to be the moustaches, well I didn't plan it that way but it came out that way. It's more charming in my opinion anyway. I added extra glitter pieces cause I need extra stuff to fill space. Also glitter.
By the way I LOVE macaroons, I think they taste so good and that's not just the colour of them being a placebo, they are yummy ^_^

The stripes were freehanded and kind of straight. I did have to go back and touch up with the brush and toothpick. Otherwise the macaroons were painted with a toothpick and I placed glitter after fishing. The glitter was very prickly and some fell off (ring finger). But moons and stars though.
