Depending on how big you would want it, I would probably go with the RKT and cover it in fondant. You can just put a dowel in it so it will stay in the top tier. Now if you don't need it to be real big you could use a 50/50 fondant to gumpaste to make it, or add tylose powder to fondant and I would still put a dowel in it.

You can use silver luster dust and vodka or lemon extract to make a paint and just paint the fondant.

Modeling chocolate or fondant over a wooden skewer. Leave enough of the skewer at the bottom to stick securely into the cake. I did something similar with a camping cake I made, only they were tall redwoods. I used fondant. Make sure you dampen the sticks so the fondant stick to them or use gum glue.

I hope someone can you give you the real amount here. I actually just mix until the consistancy that I want. Always start out with a little vodka and add slowly. You don't want it to get to thin.
