I would adhere a toothpick or piece of wire (depending on size of snowflakes) on the back by covering it with more icing or fondant, then when it's dried tomorrow stick them into the cake and any angle you'd like. Another option is to press them into the cake itself, but they might snap or go soft in the frosting. What are they made of?

To help attach the snowflakes to the side of the cake I suggest instead of a toothpick or (definitely NOT) wire to pipe an elongated (pulled?) dot of Royal icing or a 'stick' of fondant glued on.
