Fondant really isn't considered a piping medium. Mostly it is used by rolling; either by hand or rolling pin; cut w/cutters into shapes etc.

Do you mean you are piping royal icing or buttercream onto a fondant covered cake?

You need to make sure its nice and thick icon_smile.gif Thick enough so it holds its shape really well, but not so thick it gives you carpel tunnel while trying to pipe
