What do you mean "attach?" You need to do something other than just sit it on top of the cake?

no it just needs to sit ontop of the cake, I'm just worried it will full over, this is my first time using a topper guess I'm being alittle paranoid.

Hmm, that's a toughie. Is it possible to place double sided clear tape to it and stick the other side of the tape to a board of some kind? You could ice around the rest of the board so it's not noticable when placed on the cake.

If the heart won't stay up maybe you could glue a dowel or skewer to the flat part of the heart to hold it up and then insert the dowel into the cake.
