it will hold if they are not real thick, they should be about 1/16th of a inch. Also if you have something going on top of them you can push a toot pick into it

what kind of swags are you using? are those rope like or cloth like a fan? it will not fall if youre going to glue it w/ RI at the tip of the rope like swags, if youre using cloth like swags, you can glue it with RI at the middle and end. hope i help you in a way. pls post the pic of your masterpiece icon_wink.gif

Its for a Princess Cake.....just think Cinderellie lol and thats the type swag....I am afraid it will fall off......can you just wet it with vodka pr vanilla to hold it...or will a dab of butter cream hold it up....like smiles across rounds at the top edges
