Is the fondant/gumpaste hard? can you stick some skewers in it to support it upright?

I would try to insert skewers into the length of it and into the cake as well.  As long as the fondant is hardening I do not see a reason that you'd have to make it out of gumpaste on top. But I definitely would try to stick skewers in it to that it reaches the bottom of the cake.
