How do you attach heavier fondant decorations to the side of your fondant covered cake? I have attached simple fondant circles or flowers, but this weekend I will be attaching heavier decorations (3D ladybugs, bumble bees, etc). I am concerned that if I just attach them w/ "fondant glue" it might pull at the fondant that is covering the cake. Should I stick a toothpick through them a little bit and into the cake? Or is there another way?

What about a dab of royal icing?

Melted chocolate will hold heavier pieces very well. One you put the chocolate on the back of your decoration, just hold in place for a bit and it will stay.

Ok cool. Thanks everyone. And I can just use some candy melts and/or royal icing without a toothpick?
