I'm using Michelle Foster's Delicious Fondant recipe. I need to make this cake. Will the topper and bow dry hard enough in 2 days to do this with fondant alone or do I need to mix my fondant with gumpaste?

for the bow and topper, I would definitely mix it 50/50 with gumpaste. It should dry quite nicely.

I have just made some bows for an upcoming cake and they definitely dried in 2 days...

If it is not drying well enough, and you live in a humid area, put it in the oven NO HEAT but just with the oven light on...overnight should be fine.
