Kneed it together with crisco. That always helps me.

You need a balance of egg white & Crisco...probably more egg white.

What type fondant are you using? I always use chocolate fondant and NEVER have those issues.

I hear a lot of hit and miss with the marshmallow fondant..... The chocolate performs like a DREAM.

Check out the testimonials on my website, www.jenniferdontz.com
I would never use anything else.
If you have any questions, I'm happy to try and help you. Fondant should not be a chore, it's VERY EASY to make and apply to the cakes.
Happy baking!

I find that different brands of marshmallows give different results. I used to buy the store brand and it always worked fine for me. Then one time I found another brand on sale and tried those. It gave a different result - it was hard to knead and was dry. Try kneading in some shortening, hopefully that will help.
