Learning Fondant

I have been self teaching myself fondant decorating. I still perfer buttercream decorating, it tastes better, but it was fun and my son loved his birthday cake! FYI: When rolling out fondant over & over again, be prepared for it to crack more easily. It's just like rolling out roll dough, after rolling it time and time again it begins to not look as smooth anymore. Try to get the wrinkles out before rolling, like by tossing it around like a pizza. I wish I would've then my top would've looked better. Maybe others can learn from my mistakes, or if you are a fondant decorator and reading this, you can give me some advice.
