I made some baby "accessories" out of fondant and want to place them on a cake and cakeboard. Should I use royal icing, edible glue (tylose powder+ water), or melted chocolate to attach them? I'm looking at a lengthy delivery trip in the snow (yikes!) and so really want something that won't move. I also wanted to attach a fondant decoration to the side of a cake- what should I use for this?
Thanks for any help!

Candy melts are great as well.

I have used edible glue and it works very nicely. I have read alot of people use melted choc.

Thank you all! I used melted chocolate and it worked fantastically! I only realized how secure it was after the cake was cut and one of the kids wrenched one of the fondant decorations off of the cakeboard (he put a lot of effort into it!)

You can also use a glue made of a small piece of gumpaste broken up into tiny pieces with some water.
