ARoyal icing and gumpaste. Just draw the pattern, put wax paper on it, trace with royal, let dry, then over pipe for strength. Cut your gumpaste and let that dry overnight and flip it, then continue to dry. Let it all dry and then royal your pieces together. Dry again! Make at least 1 extra of every piece, and probably 2, to allow for breakage. Don't over whip your royal, it will get to airy, and break easier.

AI don't know what a slashstick is, but any reinforcement you can use would be great! But it won't be edible if it's wood, so make sure they know about it when you give them the cake! You could try something with dry spaghetti sticks, the thicker, the better, though the thin ones have a little flex. And edible:-) (I have actually babysat several kids who ate dry spaghetti!)
