I'm making a wedding cake for a bride who wants a plaque with the initial of her new last name in middle of the plaque out of fondant. I plan to attach the fondant initial with a little water to the fondant plaque, however how do I attach the fondant plaque to the side of the cake? Part of it will sit on black satin ribbon that will be wrapped around the middle of the cake on the 2nd tier.

I'm really not sure how to attach it and I want to make sure that it doesn't fall off during transport to the llocation of the reception or while it is sitting on the table at the reception before the cake is cut, heaven forbid.

Any of you season cake decorators have some suggestions?

I would use melted white chocolate to attach a dry fondant/gumpaste plaque to the side of a fondant cake.

Water just don't use too much

I forgot to tell you that I'm applying the fondant plaque to buttercream icing.

I attached this fondant plaque to my buttercream cake using a little bit of water. Hold it for a few seconds before letting go and don't put too much water.
