What is the best way to attach pearls to a BC iced cake? Want them sporadically placed so you will see each individual one, is it best to place on as you ice each layer before the BC crusts or can you do it after tiered so you can see best placement? Afraid if I wait until it has crusted they won't stick well enough or I will end up denting icing? Sorry!!!! Just not sure best way.....

Put a dot of buttercream on the pearls and then stick them on the crusted cake. Buttercream sticks to buttercream icon_smile.gif
