I would like to know if I can use fruit leathers (roll-ups) for the number and name on my cake.

Yes! Anything food safe (and edible!) can be used to decorate cakes. Using a metal cutter will make it easier to cut. If you only have plastic cutters, you may need to use them as a guide, then cut with a knife.
