I make my rumballs using crumbled cake, buttercream, chocolate, and rum.  Just dump everything in the mixer and combine until firm.  And then scoop out using a small disher.
EXACTLY!  If there's any trouble just remind them that it was beautiful and fresh the day she was supposed to pick it up.  But I'm sure it will be fine.
Since I got my PCE extruder my life has been SO much easier.  They are a bit pricey, but you will love them!  I don't know how many if those green plastic extruders I broke before getting this one.   http://www.polymerclayexpress.com/products/artway-tools/Extruders/food-safe-extruders   Full Disclosure: I am NOT affiliated with this company in any way, but they do make an awesome product.

OK, I'll be the dissenting view on this one.  I have bought these types of "unitasker" pans before and I wind up giving them away or they just sit and collect dust.  I say just carve it and don't waste the money on the pan.  If you can carve a cake, you can make any shape cake you want.
