I've done several round ones with no problem. I tried my first square one the other day and it was a disaster. I did the corners first like you're supposed to but it didn't help at all. Any suggestions?

I started with square cakes so I was nervous about round ones icon_smile.gif

Here's a great video by aine2 that might help

If you can, take a look at Sharon (Sugarshack) DVD about fondant. She addresses how to cover all shapes of cakes. I used her advice to cover my very first square cake (the "present" cake in my photos) and had success without any problems. She's a great teacher.
