Default Cake decoration idea - what to use?

I'm making a Notre Dame cake, with the Golden Dome as a centerpiece.
I'm just not sure what the best medium to make the dome would be.
Fondant? Gumpaste? Royal icing over a mold?
Any suggestions?

Maybe cover a cupcake with whatever medium you are using?
