What do you use to glue the fondant balls to the bottom of your cake tiers? I want to make sure they stay in place during transport.
The cake is buttercream w/ fondant accents.

Usually I use a little water to glue them to the cake, but since yours is BC I don't think that will work. I would try piping a little icing on the back of each ball and then pressing it onto the cake.

I use water... dip a paint brush in water and dab on the ball, you can also put a little water on the side of the ball too, so that all the balls with stick to each other for added stability...

I've added fondant trims to BC cakes before and water holds them on just fine. You could also use royal or even some left over BC to secure.

are you addressing adding pearls or something larger? If pearls, we just run a really thin line of buttercream around the bottom of the cake and press on the pearls. there is a cake with blue pearls on my photo page like this. have fun.

Sometimes I use vanilla. But buttercream would be pretty secure.
