Yes you definitely can. I only use MMF and it dries beautifully. You need to leave it out for approx 5 days although I have found that if I add more icing sugar than it dries quicker, however, the down side of this is that it is much stiffer to roll out. I have even made little shoes 2 days before and bows 1 day in advance (a last minute order) that were perfect. They may not be as stiff but they still hold.
I use MMF bc for taste it is so much more agreeable although everyone tells me that they keep the shoes and babies so I guess it wouldn't matter if I used gum paste but I'm happy doing it this way so I see no point in changing.
Hope this helps

You may want to try your MMF recipe to see. I use it, and it never really dries hard for me. It is impossible to make bows out of, IMO. If I have something I need to dry, I use Wilton fondant and add some tylose to it.
