what I do is roll the numbers, brush a little egg white on the end of a toothpick. and insert that end into the bottom of the number.,let dry , preferably overnight. then insert the other end into the cake. hope this helps.

My numbers were pretty thick. I ran a wooden skewer up the number.

This is my first number. I also put a skewer. Will I need any glue like fondant glue or royal. It's going on a fondant cake.

Mine were fine just like that. Just make sure that you give them plenty of time to harden (several days).

Time to harden is key!
But I have also used a popsicle stick and chocolate in a pinch... as long as its not hot you're golden!

If you have a tall number and don't have enough toothpick to stick in the cake, it might fall over. One option would be to use coffee stirrer straws to stick the toothpick in, thus adding a bit more support.
