I would use either royal icing or gumpaste glue. Gumpaste glue you just break a little gumpaste off into a little bit of water and let it disolve, You will notice it will get sticky. Although I think royal is your best bet, I hope they are not heavy flowers. Good Luck!! icon_smile.gif

If they are small flowers I sometimes use clear corn syrup. If they are heavier I would use the gum paste glue mentioned above.

You didn't say if you were attaching your flowers to a buttercream cake or a fondant covered cake. It does depend on how heavy the flowers are. If they are heavy and you want to attach to buttercream, I use melted chocolate; piping gel works well too if they are not heavy.
