Everytime I try to cover my cakes with fondant I always end up with creases at the bottom.

make sure you roll out your piece much biigger than you need. Some epole like to have the cake up on a can but that causes more creases and tearing for me.

Lift the fondant up and out with one hand as you gently smooth it down the side with the other hand. Like you are poofing a tablecloth and smoothing it down the side. Do that all the way around.

Tip #1 - buy Sugarshack's fondant video - it's awesome and worth every cent.

Tip #2 - go to Youtube and search fondant videos. You will get lots of them about how to cover all shapes of cakes.

Tip #3 - practice - it saved me!

I agree with tracey1970. Youtube and lots of practice! I had the same problem with the darn creases and than the more cakes I covered the less stress and anxiety and vola.... I think I got the hang of it. Just don't give up and if you want to throw the cake across the room... step back and take a "time out." oh ya.... most importantly.... have fun!
