I am doing a cake today with one tier having a fondant ribbon wrapped all around the cake in the middle of the sides. I am attaching a fondant bow on this ribbon and am not sure how I attach it so that it stays (it will not be sitting on the cake board, suspended on the cake in the middle). Should I use royal icing, chocolate, a toothpick? HELP

I have heard some saying toothpicks. Maybe use royal and use toothpicks to hold it in place until it dries? I haven't done it before but that may work.

I don't like toothpicks they aren't strong enough, go to wally world and get wooden scewers from the kitchen nick nack section. Cost is about a dollar for 100 of them. Cut one or two down and push into your bow as far as you can go with out it showing and then into cake. As long as your bow isn't real heavy this should work. RI would work but don't let go until it dries or prop it up til it dries.
