If you are talking about the different flowers all over the cake it looks like all types of cutters used. Ben Isreal does that on one of his cakes but runs a piece of lace and fondant through the past machine to imprint. Here's the link if you're interested.
If you were not going to make the cake due to the contract not being signed, I think you should have informed your client a month ago AND refunded her money. Two days does not give her time to find another baker and puts her in a spot.
Your cake is gorgeous. As for the cake stand and the cake for that matter, once it leaves your hands it is not your problem. when I deliver a cake at a venue, set it up, get someone to sign, take a picture or two and then leave with a sigh of relief !!!

Could it be the new batch is messed up?  Tarttokig is right add some red it should make black. (red, yellow and  blue makes black) you have too much of yellow and blue which makes green.
I always use this recipe, it is great but just keep in mind NOT to use all the icing sugar in case the egg whites you have are from smaller eggs. Too much sugar will harden your gumpaste. You can always knead in more after you have added the tylose. Edna dela cruz also has a great tutorial on you tube.   hth.   Gumpaste with tylose: makes approximately 1 pound of gumpaste. 2 - Large Egg Whites 1 lb sifted icing...
