Can anyone tell me how to do this? I finally finished making 400 and the thought accured to me that they are round and will fall off! Duh! I need them to go around the base of each tier that will have ribbon first.

I've always used buttercream icing to hold my pearls on, I just use a tip 1 and pipe a mini-dot onto the cake, then place pearl on the icing dot with tweezers very lightly so the icing doesn't squeeze out from under the pearl. Good Luck with yours!
