I'm not sure if I completely understand what you're asking, but if you want the letters and numbers to be rounded, you could just roll a long gum paste snake and then shape it into the appropriate letter or number. I would definitely use gum paste over fondant so that the letters/numbers dry hard and strong. Does this help?
