Add red and blue food coloring to fondant (mixing more will give an even color. Mixing less will give a tie dye look)
Roll out and cut bands for the hat.
Cut out a buckle shape. You can either color the fondant yellow before rolling or you can use gold leaf or gold luster powder to create the buckle.
Cut off the end of an ice cream cone.
Cover cone in melted chocolate, then in sanding sugar.

Pipe melted chocolate onto the cut edge of the cone
Fill with candy of your choice (I chose m&ms)
Dip the edge in chocolate and attach to cookie.
Brush brim with melted chocolate onto cookie.
