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 - 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!!!
