Cover it with fondant.

Make small balls of grey fondant, and put caster sugar on them so they would not stick together.
Roll them roller to make a stone impression.

Stick them on the tower piece by piece.

Use some of the grey also on our house if needed. I made the wall too short, so had to add some of the grey to make it taller.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Make the roof. It does not matter which color it is; it will be covered later. Shape a curve for the window using a roll of kitchen towels.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Cut small squares of two shades of violet and layer them on the roof. Finish the roof with a bit of brown to make nice edge. Leave it to dry completely.

Make wood impressions  on brown fondant, and add decorative trim to the house and window shutters.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Put some fondant on the bottom of the house to stick it to the tower. Make a support so it will not fall down.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Check it to see if it looks okay.

Make final decorations, plant and flowers

Thank you so very much for taking your time to do the tutorial, it's awesome!!! quick question. I assume the tower is inserted into the cake at the bottom, but what's the support so that it doesn't fall? does the cake holds it? ok, thank you!!

Thanks to everyone for commenting or just looking. Rosie, it is true that it is quite heavy. I put support as for a second layer of cake and stuck three long wooden sticks to hold the position.
