I'm making a wedding cake and the middle tier is to have either a real or a fondant ribbon around the middle of the tier and a square rhinestone buckle at the front. How would I get the buckle to stay? Thanks!

If you are using a real buckle, I would take a couple pieces of spaghetti and poke them into the cake so that the buckle could rest on them. It would be enough to hold the weight but would not show up. If you are making the buckle and rhinestones with gumpaste and isomalt you could always build some small spikes onto the back of the piece. I have also used a mixture of 25% corn syrup to 75% whatever color icing is on the cake as a glue. It works a treat for pearls on buttercream.
