Northrop P-61 Black Widow...Cookies!


I was approached to make some airplane cookies to look like a P-61 Black Widow for a 75th birthday party over Memorial Day weekend. Apparently the birthday boy is a big fan of these bad boys...and I don't blame him - they're COOL!!

The P-61 Black Widow: used in WW-II, the first U.S. military aircraft to use radar technology,
flown mostly at night.

Talk about scary. How would you like to have one of those creep up on you in your sleep?

I didn't have have a twin-boom, twin-engine airplane cookie cutter, so I did the best I could with what I had...

P-61 sugar cookie - not quite as intimidating...but may induce a sugar coma

They also wanted some cookies on sticks to use in centerpieces:


So there's your history lesson of the day, kids! Bon appetite, and Happy Birthday!
