You need to use a mix of 50 / 50 fondant to gumpaste. Or fondant mixed with tylose. Fondant will not get hard enough by itself to have the number or tiara standup on their own. For the number you will need an anchor in the way of a skeewer or lollipop stick attached to the back of the number so that it can have something to stick into the cake. For the tiara there are lots of tutorials on how to mold and create. Just Google Making a Tiara and something will come up.
