you have to knead your fondant first to make it pliable and get rid of air bubbles, if it gets sticky just use a bit of icing sugar. when you put it on the cake use your hands to work it in or use a cake smoother.

Hope this helps

Hi! If your fondant is cracking it is too dry. Add a little more shortening and knead it in.
Here is a very easy recipe. It will cover a 10" round cake.
Marshmallow Fondant
1 cup mini marshmallows
1 TBSP water
1 1/2 to 1 3/4 cups of powered sugar

Place marshmallows in a standard measuring cup,push down and pack them in
Place into a microwave safe bowl and add water.
Zap them just long enough that they puff up . Stir them down then add powered sugar as needed. Be careful, this is very hot and you can recieve a nasty burn! I take it out of the bowl and knead it(with greased hands) add the sugar until it is well incorporated and no longer sticky. About 5 minutes. Fondant shoul be nice and smooth and pliable.
Hope this helps and good luck

***** This recipe can be easily doubled but I find that small batches are easier to work and knead for me.
