Melt almond bark with vegetable shortening in microwave for 1 minute on high. Stir and continue at 15-second intervals until melted. Dip face of cookies in almond bark mixture. Cut marshmallows in half, around the middle. Dip in almond bark and place in center of cookies. Use decorator frosting to make ribbons around the "bonnet" and a bow. Add candy flowers, if desired.
