I add a tablespoon of water - per egg yolk and whisk it in, then freeze yolks in an ice cube tray - very handy and quick to thaw when  required. Uses to name but a few - quiches, sugar pastry , egg custard based desserts, lemon curd etc.
Hi sam83 welcome to CC! You mentioned BC or RI for grass - would you consider using sugar paste? Try pushing some coloured sugar paste / fondant through a garlic press or clay gun for a grass effect - have a look this technique used - on the funky christening cake in my CC photo album. Good luck with your cake. Hope this helps!  
Photo in my album on CC  got this CAKE PLATEAU  on line at efavormart.com - available in gold as well   
An example of embossed metal Cake Plateau on ebay    
It looks like the sides were done using an embossed rolling pin or mat - a design similar to basket weave
Congratulations and Celebrations!!!   Wishing you the very best of luck with your bakery business - going forward!

Try using ready made flower paste i.e. Squires Kitchen for the numbers - as it dries in real quick time! Another option would be to add half teaspoon Sugarflair Gum Tragacanth  250grms to sugarpaste. Mix in well and leave to rest for at least a few hours before use, and knead it again before rolling. Hope this helps!
I agree with icer101 - a cake drum would be much more appropriate. You could band the sides of the cake drum with some coordinated coloured ribbon - for a more professional finish. Hope this helps!   Happy Baking!!!
