Making a B/C iced 3 tier cake...using fondant stripes, dots, stars. What method works best to adhere them to the cake, and have them dry to the B/C fast so they don't move around?

I moisten the back of the fondant just a little.

I started using piping gel. It's great. Works just like glue and doesn't run. Good luck.

I take a paint brush dip it in water and then take a paper towel and rub it until it's amost dry and then lightly touch the back of the fondant to adhere it to the cake.

I've used water, piping gel, & buttercream. I like water the best b/c there are no "lumps" to show through
