I had to glue pearls (taxlady1 helped also, THANK YOU!!!) to a fondant cake this weekend and we used white Wilton cookie icing. It was ok, but not great. My cake had a fondant bow on it "glued" together with royal icing died ivory and pearls "glued" on the bow with royal icing. It seem to work very well. Unlike the pearls on the cake none of my pearls fell off the bow. So yes I would use royal icing as your glue. In the past I have also used piping gel and BC icing and it didn't work very well.

why not make the flowers on wires, then you can insert them into the cake (covering the wires of course you could use white chocolate) or making the flowers on a toothpick or scewer. hth

I make the flowers on individual wires. Then I wrap the flowers together and make 3 or 4 separate pics. I insert straws into the cake then stick the wires into the straws. The straws help to hold the weight of the flower pics and keeps them from ripping through the cake. HTH thumbs_up.gif
