I think Fondant will work just fine.

This is my cake and I used fondant and a clay extruder. Of course the one you selected is a million times better, this will give you an idea.

Any of the mediums you mentioned will work just fine. The only wire needed would be in making those little round sprays - not for the branch.

You have a pic in your album - a jungle baby shower - how did you make the grass for that? I'm thinking this would be similar.

I would use either modeling choco or fondant. Just make fat snakes. They don't have to be long - look closely at the pic, each tier's branch portion is seperate - not one long one covering the whole cake.

Looks to me like either modeling chocolate or fondant would work. Just roll a long, not uniform snake and drape and pinch accordingly. You should not have to use wires. Good luck!
