I'm going to make a cake with those little fondant balls at the base. How do you attach them? Thanks!

I also ue a little water. I brush it on with a paint brush and it holds really well.

Water here too for a fondant covered cake, I just stick them on when it's frosted in buttercream.

I put a small border of BC, then stuck the balls on.

You can also use "gum glue" a 50-50 mix of gumpaste and hot water. Let the gumpaste disolve, and it make a thin milky white edible glue, use it with a clean paint brush. Love it!
