I'm doing a picket fence on an Easter cake (although I haven't thought much about it yet!). Will bookmark that link for next month! Thanks!

I did a fence in this cake: http://cakecentral.com/gallery/1790760

I precut the fence posts and let them harden and then applied them to the cake.

I made my own picket fence as well---I cut it free hand and glued it together, then I used some toothpicks pushed it through the posts to hold it up on the cake. I don't know how to attach a link to my pictures, but if you look at my pictures you will see my daisy cake. icon_smile.gif

I also did one, but used white chocolate and a mold I purchased on Ebay:

I just did this on a cake. I drew it out, rolled out my fondant, traced around the pattern with xacto knife, let it dry a few minutes, and laid it againsty my cake. It worked out good. The only advice I have is for the board that runs horizontally down the fence line.......make sure it is thick enough that it doesn't break when you pick up your section of fence. I hope that made sense. I covered my breakage with grass and flowers. icon_rolleyes.gif
Good luck and happy baking!
