I probably would've made that out of RKT...WEEKS ago...did she not give you much notice when she ordered this cake?  You can still do it...you just need to get on it....asap.

Royal icing? But you don't have a lot of time!

Yea she did...I just had my time all messed up. :( 

 

That looks like like gumpaste pieces cut out, draw on and then glued together. Do you agree?

Yes. I just enlarged it on my monitor and it looks like pieces of gumpaste. I think the bottom of it is done separately, then the skinny part on top.
