The concept for my cake is to have a top square made to look like a basket and pumpkins inside of it, peeking out the top.
My question is, do I ice it like normal and just weave the fondant onto the top layer? Or do I ice it, cover it with fondant, and then do a weave of fondant over top that?
It seems that I should do the weave right on the icing, before the icing hardens.
Does this sound right?
I need expert help!
You can get an impression mat to look like basketweave....
Otherwise I would probably cover it with a really thin layer of fondant first so then you will have plenty of time to carefully cut the pieces and "weave" them.

That would work.
I wouldn't actually "weave" the fondant, just place the pieces together to look like it's woven.
Have you seen this video with the young girls applying a fondant basketweave technique to their cake?:
