The brown parts on the bottom tier? Just mix some chocolate fondant and some vanilla fondant together to get that color. Cut out wide strips. Use the back of a knife to imprint them. Put the **tiniest** bit of water (just to make it damp) on the back, then slap 'em on the cake.

just what leah_s said. I used the fondant to cut out strips (cut them into different shaped strips), then used a knife to imprint them to make it look like wood, water and put them on. The idea is to make htem look like a wooden fence.

How about the lettering though..is that about finding the right letter cutout?
