Last minute Mother's Day request: how can I make these biscuits/cookies, ready to be given to the recipients in about 18 hours?

I just found this photo
. I would dearly love to give these to my mother and grandmother for Mother's Day, in addition to their gifts already purchased/made.
The only problem is that it's 5.40pm on Saturday in Australia, I don't have time to fart-arse around experimenting.
My gut instinct says a basic biscuit for the base (would you like some alliteration with that?), cover with coconut at the end, but how can I shape the toe bit? A thick gluggy icing/frosting? Marzipan? Does coconut stick to marzipan? If not, can I glaze it with something to make the coconut stick?
Tl; dr - I'm okay with making the biscuit base but what do I use to recreate the toe shape effectively, and to ensure the coconut sticks?
