I have also made them out of melted Jolly Ranchers, but I haven't uploaded that picture yet.
Yes, that is how. Just make sure you do it over a cookie sheet or something you can clean up easily.
I have made a few cakes with flames, my husband is a firefighter. Here are the links to mine.

Yep, that is what I was going to say....icecream cone!
My go to chocolate cake is the recipe on the Hershey's can. It is veyr simple and tastes amazing.
Nope, no bulge when you leave yourself the quarter inch. But I will say to make sure you fill the gap in completely with your crumb coat, or you might have an air bubble explosion. Had that happen once when I didn't take the extra step to insure it was filled in all the way. I do this by using a piping bag to apply my crumb coat.

And yes, very thick, like playdough almost. I fill with my filling just below the level of the dam also, this insures no leakage.
I am making some Smores cupcakes tomorrow. I am using chocolate cake though, and putting a gram cracker crust on the bottom (just like you would for a pie). I am filling it with marshmallow fluff and topping with ganache. Then I will garnish with a graham cracker, chocolate square and the tiny little Mellowbites.
