sure you can pipe it - just gotta practice
i will send you mine in a few hours when the sun comes up here...
mine did not shrink
i don't usually make iced cookies  and for the exact reasons you are facing-- i thin the cookie dough with milk or water and pipe on most decor then bake it on -- i usually use a nicely spiced cream cheese cookie for my cut out cookies so they're not dependent on the icing to boost the flavor -- i don't want my cookies drying out while i diddle around with icings that need to dry --    if i do use 'icing' i use melted white chocolate but i am surely in the minority...
this is an obvious answer but you gotta bake it till it's done of course -- every oven is different -- no way i can tell you the exact time -- what i can advise is that trying to bake cakes deeper than a 2" inch yield can be most problematic -- maybe in the middle when it domes up you'd have 3-4" deep but what you might want to consider is baking a separate layer the size of the bowl if you need it deeper --   here's some important information for...
i use regular non-pound cake for my tt cakes -- i use doctored mixes for this because i keep these cakes cold for security -- adds that invisible cohesiveness especially for delivery --   cakes made with butter do not relax back to their former soft texture after they've been in the fridge -- some people would describe it as 'dry' because it does not slide down the throat the same after it comes back to room temp -- but it's really just the butter staying firm* -- if you...

fwiw -- sometimes i roll out my cookie dough* before i chill/freeze it so all i have to do is let it warm up enough to cut out then remove the excess and bake -- *between two sheets of parchment just a thought for future cookie making

That is why I really don't want to sell cakes : )   your cake is cute as a button and you need to consider doing some research on your pricing formula -- when someone underprices that drastically where you've got 70 servings you're selling for less than ding dongs and ho hos -- what happens is you'll...
