Well, if both fondant pieces are fresh, water should always work just fine.  That's the accepted method. 


If one of the pieces is very dry, then gum glue (tylose, gum tex, or cmc mixed with water till it looks like glue) will work much better.


A smear of royal icing can also work.

make sure you make it just barely damp. if there is too much water it will just slide off.  Gum glue is great also.

Just one more method: a dab of melted chocolate or candy melts works great.

I'm a stickler for gum glue (1 part tylose in 18 parts cold water and let dissolve) or royal icing.
