I used these cookies as cupcake toppers for Halloween-themed cupcakes. The kids loved that they got a cupcake, a cookie, and a piece of chocolate candy. I found it was much simpler to pipe frosting around the hole in the center of each cookie (vs. piping it around the kiss), and then I placed the kiss on top of the frosting. This alternative made perfect bands for the hat. (I skipped the bows, as I, too, was having trouble getting them to turn out as well as pictured.) For an added touch, I reserved some frosting to tint yellow and used that to adhere yellow stars (cupcake sprinkles) to the kisses.
