I use SMBC, and all I have to do is press them up against the cold icing, and they stick like glue. Cant be too heavy of course. Not sure what kind of icing you're using.

AI generally use my icing made of whipping cream. What is SMBC I'm not sure I know it. Maybe I know it in other name. For my 3D gumpaste figures I use tylose glue. Do you think it works too, or should I change my buttercream recipe? Thanks for your advice

There's plenty on here, just google SMBC recipe, or Well Dressed Cake SMBC, and it will lead you back here. (I just like using Google, it's quicker)
