My fondant covered cakes have been lumpy lately...could it be that I am not putting a thick enough coat of BC? I usually only put slightly more than a crumb coat. Or could it be that my BC is too soft?

Any suggestions please?

It may be, do you use the fondant smoother? does the BC ooze out of the bottom as you smooth it? Could it be air bubbles?

Just another idea, it could be that you are rolling your fondant too thin? I know when I roll it thinner, I can always see more imperfections. I try to stay between 1/4 and 3/8 thicknesses. Just a thought.

I like my fondant a little thicker too.
