That can be hard to do, I'm anxious to see if anyone has any good suggestions for you. I once wrapped fondant around plastic dowels and the only way I could get it to work was to make a long strip and wrap it around and around, then smooth it down. I brushed at at the seams with a very small amount of water, to get it to stick. Here's the cake I made with this technique:
Notice the tree... it actually made for a nice effect, but wasn't what I was originally going for.

WOW what an amazing cake I love it!!! I'm trying to make a wrestling ring cake and I thought i would use the dowel rods wrapped in fondant as the posts.
