Fondant and gumpste both have gelatin in them if you use the basic recipes that have been around for years. Fondant has corn syrup and glycerine to keep it soft, and gumpaste has a little corn syrup but no glycerine, and it also has tylose in it. The recipes for both can be adapted to be stiffer of softer, and they'll both dry hard if you leave them long enough, so it kind of depends on what recipe you start with and how you want it to turn out when it's dry. Without the tylose the dry item will be more crumbly.

The purpose of tylose is to initially add stretch and to then enhance drying.  Added gelatin won't cause the same results.
