Piping gel works great in attaching heavier or thicker pieces to fondant.

As for making chocolate shiny, you need to temper it correctly. Here is more info:

I got this great tip at the Oklahoma Sugar show to attach fondant to fondant...use a very thin rub of Crisco on the monogram and stick up. Super thin layer and the Crisco blends into the fondant, no taste no sliding. I would use this method for flat pieces only...for heavier pieces I use royal icing or melted chocolate. HTH. Good Luck! icon_smile.gif

I use some merangue power mixed with water to creat a glue, but in a pinch just plain old water works fine aswell

The wedding is tonight finshed cake 3:00 a.m. Bride and Momma LOVED it. The crisco advice was GREAT. I have used other ideas (including ones posted here) but some times things slide, also are messy - but the Crisco did the job, not messy and even the heavy flowers did not move at all. Chocolate i used the Crisco on too and it helped. I am sooo thankful for this site and all the cc'ers.
