I was told by my instructor that she uses pig hat pins with the pearls on the ends. You have to make sure you tell your clients that they are there though.

I use royal icing, too, or a bit of melted chocolate.

I use a bit of melted chocolate. On a round cake you only have to secure it in the back.

I like the double sided sticky tape idea. I will try that one next time. Would make it easy when attaching too. I am always afraid with the icing methods that the ribbon will release and not stay stuck together.

I melt down a little fondant in the microwave with a drop or two of water. It sticks great and doestn't show through or stain the ribbon.
