I used tiny dabs of buttercream to attach pearls to fondant. Just use your frosting bag with a small tip, make random dots, and press the pearls onto them. Don't do too many at once or they'll crust before you get the pearls onto them.

I used white buttercream to attach white pearls to blue fondant, and the buttercream didn't show at all. It's the Tiffany box cake in my photos icon_biggrin.gif

I made the pearls too, and it was really easy. There are directions on Earlene's website and they worked perfectly! You can even make them ahead of time and then freeze them so they'll be soft for the cake.
