I have a customer that is requesting a cake with spheres/balls adhered to the sides (see similar pics below).
I’m seeking some advice or suggestions on what I can make the balls out and how to adhere them please.
Thank you in advance for any help you all can provide .
They can be made as “cake balls”; solid fondant; Or rice cereal treats, each covered in fondant. I’m guessing treats would be better—Weight less. Attach them w/melted chocolate; or Make as suckers w sticks which are pushed into the cake. That might work Best for the lgr ones.

i think i would do as kakeladi said and if it was important to matchy matchy where some of the largest ones are floating, with nothing stacked under them i think i might try some half & whole chocolate spheres -- hollow ones --
they got so many cookies in the picture, i was trying to think of some kind of macaron that would work but hey how about those meringue things you bake -- so lightweight -- because some of them look like they are just half spheres -- and you could maybe bake them in something to get the right shape?? piping would work too -- they don't change in the oven as you can see with the stars they piped --
but i think too much -- although i would def try it myself -- should take the dusting of color pretty good -- and the smaller balls for the border & stuff just use fondant or pipe --

I agree that meringues would be ideal for the larger balls or gelatin bubbles, made by dipping small inflated balloons into gelatin and letting it set up. The gelatin becomes very strong and durable once dried and has the advantage of being super lightweight.
