If you are traveling with it stacked, be prepared...they are HEAVY! 
Can you share a link to your web page?  That will be  a lot of potential customers first look at you and your business, if it has some problems that could turn off clients.  I don't hear of many cakers doing a gangbuster business off of facebook.  Well, they may get lots of business but not much real money since facebook cake sites seem to equate with cheaper cakes.
If it isn't crusted yet, wait a little while longer until it is crusted.
If you want to get feedback on your cakes, then ask for it.  On your free cakes, of course.  When you tell someone you will make a cake, let them know right away you  will want feedback on it.  When you deliver the cake and it is dished up, have them give you comments.  I have made two different pecan pie recipes at Thanksgiving and gave each person a small slice of each and had them each say which they preferred and why.  I have had people try different carrot cake...
That design is so quick and easy, the perfect cake to do away from your kitchen.  Try it out on your next cake for your friends or family and see how easy it is.  Any icing should work, what is your usual recipe?  That should be fine.
Some countries typically charge for cake by the pound...perhaps the buyer was from a different country/cake culture.
You should do at least a quick thin coat before the rosettes.  Otherwise where there are little gaps between the rosettes you will see naked cake, not icing.
And you need to kind of gently push the icing into the crumb coat to start and then keep putting pressure on the bag as you move the tip away. 
I assume they are metal tips.  A little Goo Gone or Goof Off should do the trick.
That cake will be massively heavy if you try to stack the whole thing ahead of time so factor that into your decision.
