I hope this isn't too much of a newbie question...

I am covering a cake in fondant and have made all my beads for the border. I am wondering how best to attach them to the cake? Do I use a little water like I have with accents on the sides or is there a better way?

TIA icon_smile.gif

Water, gum glue, b'cream or RI - whatever you have on hand will work icon_smile.gif
