for flat ones -- i would attach a fat popsicle stick to the back with white chocolate so there's something to stick down into the cake

if you find you need more stability -- you can put in another popsicle stick as guy wire type thing where it goes into the cake and angles up to the back of the pin to help hold it upright and more secure --

My first thought was to use chop sticks.  I use them a lot because the end is already pointed and goes into the cake easily and they are long enough for stability.  Like K8 said, attached to the bowling pins with melted chocolate.
