I just made a bunch of gumpaste cutouts (daisies, letters, numbers & butterflies) to attach to a 2 yr. old's birthday cake I'm making for Friday. I will be frosting the cake in buttercream and am wondering the best and most secure way of attaching the gumpaste. Is royal icing the best method? If so, should I make a thin royal icing and brush it on the back of the cutouts just before applying to the cake? Any help will be greatly appreciated.

Thank you!

i always stick them on with just a little bit of buttercream. that way, you won't have to make another icing (unless you need the RI of course).

Brushing on a little water works for me.
