I want to make some gumpaste flowers this weekend since I will have more time. I don't have silver dragees right now and I wanted to put them in the center of the flowers. Is there a way to add them later on? Or should I wait until I have everything?

Thanks in advace,

i bit of Royal or even some candy melts should work fine. You might try gum glue(melt/disolve a bit of gumpaste in warm water) I'd practice first to make sure it held though.

Melted white chocolate dries like cement, I just used that to do a silver dragee band on a wedding cake today.

I have used the gumpaste glue many times. Take piece of old hard gumpaste , add some water.. just a bit to get sticky clear glue. Trick is to use a decent brush . Let dry. ( I make sure wet gumpaste is really gooey so it dries faster and holds well
