.....I don't measure....just add a little bit......till i feel that the fondant is no longer sticky and is a bit on the dry side.......   A gal after my own heart:)  That's what I do. Oooooohhhh I just thought of something else that can be used if it is available to you - Wilton's DRY gumpaste mix.  Just like above I just dip a lump of fondant into the dry mix and knead it through until I feel the fondant get tight & dry.   The product actually make a terrible gumpaste,...
You finished creation turned out wonderful :)  Yes, we do improvise when we can/have to.  Glad it worked for you.
I would not use paper on a display cake.  One of the reasons is that the *real finished product* will look totally different!  There are several non edible choices to use as icing.  When I had my bakeries, having used one of them several customers commented on the fact that it didn't smell like icing! 
Certainly you can combine them if you need that much cake. Not knowing your recipe for the choco cake can you maybe 1/2 it if you don't need that much?   OR using just the vanilla cake batter you can take out about 1 Cup & add 1/3 cup UNsweetened cocoa powder to it, then drop small spoonfuls into the vanilla batter in the pan.
My thoughts:  When they went to take the top tier off without taking out the center dowel they ran into nothing be trouble and the pic is the results.  Either that or nothing but fast driving!  Took turns on 2 wheels, slammed on breaks etc :)
that's right there is NO oil, butter or other fat in this recipe. This is a great one to use.  Just add 2/3 to 1 cup of UNsweetened cocoa powder with the last bit of sugar.
 have used straight fondant for *small* items w/o there being a problem so it on depends on how big the object is going to be. You also try making the parts separately, let them dry - at least overnight before putting them together.
What about using rice cereal treats to make those big lumpy areas?
I would use chocolate, but bring in the color of the graiff and turtle.
