I can not find info about this. The plastic cake toppers with the little flat peices on their feet attachment to a cake. I want to make sure it is really secure and wont fall. I put a border of buttercream around it but it wasnt stable. Are you supposed to put a blob of royal icing underneath it? Please help!!

A good blob of b'cream should do the trick.  OR maybe even better is melted choco.  Once it has had time to dry (overnight?) it should stay.

You could make a 'stand' out of fondant or gp to anchor the figure to before putting on the cake, then the stand could be covered w/icing to help make it more secure.

AThat's a good idea about the stand out of fondant. I put buttercream on it and she kept falling.
