I would use fondant. Roll out and cut thin strips of fondant and lay them out to dry. If you want them to look like wood, you can use a wire brush to scratch grooves in the fondant and paint it with brown food coloring.

Allow to dry completely.

Visual help only, it is a door but you can use same concept for your fence panels.


Good luck! thumbs_up.gifthumbs_up.gif

That is really cool. I'm going to have to try that sometime.

I just did a wood fence for a groom's cake last weekend. I used mmf with a little tylose so it would dry harder/faster tinted light brown. I used a wood impression matt and then cut strips and let them dry. You could do it without the impression matt and just use a wire brush as mentioned above or even a pastry wheel or any tool really that will allow you to score random lines in the fondant. Then I mixed brown gel color with vodka (vodka allows the food color to dry fast by evaporating) and used a dry brush to brush on some color. After all my strips were nice and hard, I assembled the fence pieces using a dab of water to stick the pieces together.
