I either take a paint brush and use a little water, or i use a little bit of corn syrup with the paint brush. Just depends on how set the buttercream is. HTH

I just wet the back of the fondant item with a little water, or fondant thinned with water and it sticks right on!

I do this all the time and I usually just pop them on - even with crusting buttercream. For some reason, if they won't stay put, I use a small damp, (not dripping wet) paintbrush and dampen the back of the fondant piece.

I usually do the same--a little water and they stick right on.
For bigger pieces, I might "glue" them on with a little buttercream.
