This is a great tutorial by Montrealconfections on making the stamp out of royal icing for cookies. If you could get some images of the computer and do it on plexiglass or something that is bendable to imprint around the cake and then work in the details. Just an idea hope it helps. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Hj9YsUDOWbo

Allow the gumpaste to come to room temperature. Then take the amount you are going to be using   and knead it with slightly greased fingertips. As you knead it will become pliable like chewing gum, color at this point. Here's a good tutorial by Edna de la cruz   http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=m--Djm74i8Q&list=PL63DCAC4A055FCFE8&index=6
