This Whole Thing is Rigged!

Um.  Oil rigged, I mean. As in derrick oil rig.  Old fashioned to remind this 80 year old birthday boy of his younger days, running his oil business.

The event planner’s instructions were specific: a large cookie (yep, that’s a 6″ long cookie) with the rig exactly as he had drawn (the planner is quite the artist himself) on a light blue background.  Oh yes, and Mr. Johnson (the birthday boy) wanted green oil.  (Not that I doubted him but I had to look that one up; it is true that in some places the crude comes out green!)  The 6″ cookie cutter came from the ever.so.helpful Bobbi at Bobbi’s Cookie Cutters.

Step 1: Bake 150 of these HUGE cookies.  Step 2: Flood and let dry over night. Step 3: Paint the background. Step 4: Hand draw (with Rainbow Dust double sided edible markers) the oil rigs. Step 5: Add green oil with second layer of icing.  Did I mention they wanted 150 of them? (The photos only show 100 of them.  The other 50 are on another table…)

Here is my friend, Judy and Ray, the event planner! Thanks for having confidence that I could bring your vision to cookie life!
