Hello All,

I'm making a naked cake for my sister's wedding and I have no idea how to stick the fondant flowers and succulents on her cake. I need help! I already made them and they are dry. Not sure how to attach them if there is no fondant covering or coating. 

Please help!

Use hollow coffee stirrers or drink straws.  Insert the straw in then add the flowers.

If your flowers don't have wires then you will have to use some type of icing to attach them.  Probably the easiest to fix up would be stirring a bit of water or flavoring into powdered sugar until it is the consistency of thick mud.  Otherwise make up a small batch of icing like royal or buttercream.  You also can use pieces of fondant but I'm not sure how well that will hold on a naked cake.

Do you think since there is no covering, I wouldn't be able to cascade them down the side of the cake? Basically, it's a 3 tier cake with 4 layers on each tier. I'm not sure it will hold up well. Would white chocolate work? I just don't want the succulents tearing down the sides of the cake.

I know this is not exactly the same( she uses fruit) but you get a little help from this.
