After reading this I have to eliminate some things from my shopping list. Maybe I should just go on a liquid diet, lol. Ignorance was bliss. Everytime I have watched 'ace of cakes' I have thought that even if someone gives me a free cake from there I'm not going to eat it. Those decorators are always talking, laughing, coughing when inches away from the cake, it always grosses me out.
There is a tutorial here by Edna da cruz which might help you. http://cakecentral.com/b/tutorial/fondant-bows?utm_medium=email&utm_campaign=Bows%20and%20Swags%20Tutorials&utm_content=Bows%20and%20Swags%20Tutorials%20CID_9ee005882b6fa4948f8aa3edfb4eeb1d&utm_source=CampaignMonitor
Fondant only, gumpaste will dry hard. chk this tutorial http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KxDRloqdrO8
This video might give you an idea but you would be making your ruffle the other way. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KxDRloqdrO8
Here is a recipe I use all the time and  this video might help http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=m--Djm74i8Q   hth.   Gumpaste with tylose: makes approximately 1 pound of gumpaste. 2 - Large Egg Whites 1 lb sifted icing sugar 6 - Level teaspoons Tylose 4 - Teaspoons shortening (Crisco) or any white vegetable shortening 1. Place the egg whites in a Kitchen Aid mixer bowl fitted with the flat paddle. 2. Turn the mixer on high speed for 10 seconds to break...
Gumpaste is what you need if you want to make the flowers to harden. These can be made well in advance and you can save them and keep them for many years. You can make the gumpaste at home if you can get some tylose or gum tragacanth.
If you are talking about the different flowers all over the cake it looks like all types of cutters used. Ben Isreal does that on one of his cakes but runs a piece of lace and fondant through the past machine to imprint. Here's the link if you're interested. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=K_IpaRl_rkc
If you were not going to make the cake due to the contract not being signed, I think you should have informed your client a month ago AND refunded her money. Two days does not give her time to find another baker and puts her in a spot.
Your cake is gorgeous. As for the cake stand and the cake for that matter, once it leaves your hands it is not your problem. when I deliver a cake at a venue, set it up, get someone to sign, take a picture or two and then leave with a sigh of relief !!! 
For me the nutella/rasberry filling is a hit.
