I have this fabulous idea for a skull dead head cake for Halloween but I am trying to figure out the logistics of the process. I want a smooth skull base and was thinking a hard white chocolate would be perfect. Will a good white chocolate harden over buttercream? I'm thinking the moisture from the buttercream won't allow it to harden or the buttercream/chocolate will slide off. Am I correct on this?

Secondly, if I bypassed the buttercream and just coated the cake with white chocolate, would I be able to use mold-able chocolate, gum paste, and/or the corn syrup based blood on/over the chocolate? Any and all input is so greatly appreciate!!
