You can use Royal Icing in the same color as the background color as "glue". That will make the "glue" disappear into the background and the dragees should stay on firmly with RI.

Hi there Millicente. I also use dragees in my decorations and this is what I do. If using royal icing to flood my cookies, I just place the dragees on before it begins to set. if using fondant, I use a tiny amount of medium stiffness RI to attach the dragees. I hope this helps.

If I need a really really clean dragee placement... Put a little royal in a small bowl, drop some dragees into it, then pull them out and apply with tweezers. Then icing is only on the dragee, not puffed out around it.

You can use piping gel. Put it in a bag with a small tip -- works like a charm and you'll never see it. icon_biggrin.gif

Use tylose powder mixed with water. It makes a gum glue that is clear and fantastic. you need to mix it up a day or so ahead of time so the tylose has time to dissolve. Works wonderful!
