For girl’s hat, color 1 oz. of fondant light yellow. Roll out 1/8" thick. Cut half circle to size of wedge between ears and attach to cookie with royal icing. For brim, cut a 3½"x5/8" light yellow fondant strip. Attach to hat with royal icing, making a curled brim shape. Roll two orange loops and attach with royal icing. For leaves, tint ¼ oz. of fondant green and use smallest leaf Cut-Outs™ to cut two leaves. Attach with royal icing. For flowers and loops, tint 1/8 oz. each fondant orange and rose. Use smallest flower Cut-Outs™ to cut three flowers (orange, rose and yellow); attach with royal icing and add sugar pearls to center with royal icing.
For boy’s hat, color 1 oz. of fondant black. Roll out 1/8" thick and cut a 2-1/8"x2" rectangle. Trim rectangle to give it an angled look.
For brim, repeat the same process as with girl’s hat, except keep straight. Color a small piece of fondant violet and roll out and cut a 1¼"x¼" band; attach to hat with royal icing. Create yellow flower using the same process as with the girl’s hat. Attach flower with royal icing.
