Step 8: The Details and Presentation

Once you've finished the blocks, use the extra fondant to make more little details. At this point it might be nice to make personalized bits, like names, flags, etc...

Use a little bit of green fondant to make some greenery.  This was all sculpted by eye but if you have leaf cutters that would be cool too. 

Add definition and moss with gel colours

I've used brown sugar to pack around the bottom so it sits nicely on the tray and looks more authentic. :)
