Not sure what kind of problem you are having. Did you want to pipe them on or use fondant/gumpaste? When I make fondant/gumpaste scrolls, either by hand or using a cutter,
I let them firm up a bit before applying to cake. Are you applying to buttercream or fondant?
If using fondant/gumpaste apply a little "glue"(I mix a drop of water w/ some confects sugar),
to back of scroll and place. HTH
