Usually for those I make a ball of icing in the center and stick the stamens into it. Are you trimming the stem so it's not too long? You need to do that.

Inserting into wet paste - just dip in gum glue.

it depends on the kind of flower - i have used the florists tape to hold them onto the wire, or folded the wire it two with the stamens at the fold and twisted it round.
