What about using a little royal icing to keep them in place? I used it for the wings on my christmas angels cake. Depending on the size and weight of them, you may need to support them for a wee while until they dry. This is only usually for around 20 minutes if I use royal icing. Hope that helps! thumbs_up.gif

ok the royal icing worked like a charm for the wing but now i am having trouble with the hair. Anyone have any tips on making the hair so that it looks fairly close to real?

I just did a cake with fairies, for the hair I rolled fondant into thin snakes and then curled it around a toothpick. Then glued the curls on with gum glue. ( a little gum paste dissolved in water) Hope this helps.
