Would somebody give me a quick guide how to attach a gumpaste flowers to a fondant covered cake?
Do you use RI, BC or do you "glue" them with water, or just lay them loosely on top??
The only way we learn in Wilton class is use toothpick to attached rose to the cake. But about other flowers? Thank you!

I would use RI. I think that it wouldn't dissolve the F or GP and it will be your strongest hold.

Royal will adhere pretty much any flower...but if all you were using were small flowers, water or gum glue would suffice. Buttercream would also do the job, but I would use it for large or small flowers that are attached to the top surfaces of the tiers or smaller flowers anywhere. I'm no expert...just sharing what works for me.
