HI, you can do either of your suggestions, personally i would cover the cake in fondant ( assuming its going to be one colour) and then either score the sides of the wall to give you the effect you are wanting or layer another peice of fondant over the 'wall' you suggested. there are lots of photos on this site that have 3D cakes covered in fondant, with seperate colours you can just do peices at a time.
I hope this makes sence.
good luck

I use a simple impression mat to make the brick wall work on a buttercream cake. If you want to see a pic of the castle wedding cake I made using this method, just e-mail me, I'm happy to share a pic. If you look in my pics I've posted, it's there. It's VERY EASY!!!

If you have any questions at all, please ask away!
