AI am making a "fake" wedding cake for my final at school.

1st small disaster: I have a bubble in my fondant on the top tier anyway to get it out? It wasn't there before... I'm going to put flowers with a wire on top not sure if that will make it worse or solve the probablem.

2nd small disaster: I used the small pearls to put on the quilted pattern & they were black & the color ran on one of them so now I have a little color on the front of my cake anyway to get that out?

Any advice is appreciated! Thanks!

Take a needle or hat pin and pop the bubble and try to smooth it out.  As for the colour, you can use a very small paintbrush and a bit of vodka and brush the colour away.  It might not take all the colour away, but it will be a lot better.

I was going to say the exact same thing as ladyellam :) Vodka is a miracle worker.

AFor that air bubble, you can pierce it with a small straw such as a coffee stirrer straw and suck the air right out! Then patch up hole with fondant " paste" ( a little clump of fondant mixed with water to form a paste that you can brush on with a paint brush)...or put a decoration over it.
