This is fantastic! I was just asked about this. THANKS!!
I don't know of a crusting whipped cream, but I do know that it works really well with a hot knife. Smooth it out as much as possible, then dip your knife in really hot water, making sure to dry off ALL the water, then go over it. It makes it super smooth.

Has anyone else heard/tasted/loved this cake? PS...this is an excellent thread!
Sorry...I didn't read all the way through! I didn't realize you already delivered. I'm sure it looked beautiful, and they loved it!
I hope I'm not too late to help!!!!!! CHECK OUT MY PICS. I glazed the Ark in the Noah's Ark cake TOTALLY IN CHOCOLATE...NO CRUMB COAT NECESSARY.I always use Ghiradelli because it melts so smooth. Use white, milk or dark...your choice. BUT....don't forget a bit of parafin wax. That's the secret to it! Parafin wax is in the baking section, and is used in candy making. It's really inexpensive. Personally, I use 1/4 of a bar per 11 oz bag of Ghiradelli morsels. And...
