I am facing a design dilemma with these darn hats that my mother has insisted upon for her family reunion (the last name is Hatt, and she thinks it's too cute to do hats. Ugh. Lol). She bought the cutter and everything, and wanted 4 dozen cookies.
I have never done an order this large. She is family, so she gets the family price. So . . . in short, I am unmotivated because I wanted to do something else, but she insisted on the hats.
So far I have them flooded with brown icing that I had left over from another project . . . and I'm worried now that was a mistake. They look so plain. I didn't want to do black as the base because it takes up so much colour and turns people's mouths black.
Anyway, I was thinking of adding a band around the hat, and then some drop flowers in nice muted colours (thinking Wilton garden tone set) but I'm worried they will still be ugly.
Does anyone have any suggestions that won't take me forever? I need these to be as simple as possible, but not awful and boring either.
I do not have an airbrush, but I have a few Sugarbelle stencils and two color sprays . . . mint and red (so I don't think that will work to spice up this base).
See picture for (bane of my existence) hats. Even the flood is subpar. I used the dip method for the first time.
