Using perimeter cutters, cut out a boy and girl, position on cornstarch-dusted cake board to dry. Using royal icing, pipe tip 2 dot and string facial features and hair. Outline and pipe-in clothes with tip 2; add dot and stripe details. Divide remaining fondant in half and tint brown and green. Using brown fondant: Cut out monkey. Dry on cornstarch-dusted cake board. Using royal icing, pipe tip 2 face in ivory (smooth with finger dipped in cornstarch). Add tip 2 outline and dot details; add tip 4 pipe-in banana. To make tail: curve a 5 in. piece of wire, hook the end, cover 3 in. in rolled fondant. Let dry and attach the wire to body of monkey using royal icing. Cover remaining brown fondant airtight in plastic wrap and reserve for later use. Using green fondant: Cut 16 palm leaves. Add veins to leaves using veining tool in Confectionery Tool
