i use setting ganache under my fondant (like Planet Cakes) and it gives a nice crisp base to apply the fondant. Also, using TWO fondant smoothers seems to work wonders for me.

What if you are using butter cream and not fondant?

What brand of pans are you using? That makes a difference on the sharpness of your edges. Magic Line pans have nice straight sides. Wilton not so much. HTH.
