Hi catherine1412828. I used modeling chocolate for all of the monkeys because I found it easier then fondant. It sticks to itself. The head is just a round ball with layers of components for the end result. If you look at the face you will see I used a small heart cookie cutter just large enough for the face. The nose and mouth are just a ball cut in half place on the face and put two small holes for the nose. I used tiny bits of black fondant for the eyes. The ears are small balls cut in half and accent with small pieces of tan modeling chocolate.The body is an egg shaped piece small end on top with again tan accent for the body. The arms and legs are just rolled logs. Sorry I didn't take pictures of the process but I hope this helps. Good luck.
