Attached is a photo of my friend's wedding cake from 10 years ago. (I didn't make it).

She has asked me to "re-interpret" it into a single 8" tier. I'll also be grouping 5 cupcakes on the top to represent the 5 members of her family.

Her description of this cake is fondant with pearly accents, but the whole thing looks like untidy buttercream to me.

In any event, I'm planning to cover with fondant. Would you use dragees and recreate the top tier, or would you just do some buttercream piping? How do dragees stick to fondant?¤t=LisaCake.jpg

I would use gumpaste pearls or dragees. I put a small dot of buttercream on beck of the pearl and pres is lightly into the fondat so it creates a slight indentation, the buttercream acts as glue.
