I don't know if this has already been discovered but I thought I would share.
I had some trouble with my red fondant breaking where ever I had a fold so I made some fondant spackle to fill in cracks and cover up the tears.
It's super easy and since it is made from the same fondant used to cover the cake the color matchs exactly.
Just mix a small amount of fondant with some tylose glue until it is a thick sticky paste, similar to toothpaste but a little bit thinner.
I used a palette knife and mixed it on a plastic lid, worked fine.
Using your fingers take small amount of spackle and rub it onto crack, tear or hole, filling in space. Work it in and rub it around, wipe away any excess with your finger.
If it is a large or deep tear you might have to do a few coats,just let them dry a bit inbetween applications.
It will be really sticky at first but let it sit for just a few minutes and then go back over it with a little bit of shortening and smooth it out and blend it into the surrounding fondant.
Once it is dry you won't be able to tell where the boo-boo was.
Hope that helps.
Thanks for the tip!

Thanks for the tip. Can you tell me what tylose glue is.. is it something that you have to buy or can you make it yourself with tylose...
That is a very good tip! Thank you.
tylose glue is a mixture of tylose powder and water. you can also melt some gumpaste in water and it will work the same way.
here is some tylose powder
Thanks for the great tip on fondant spackle, CakeMommyTX. I have a feeling I will be using it this very evening, as I'm just before covering a six-layer cake, a project that bodes no good for my fondant-challenged fingers!
Thanks for the great info and how to use it. I did not know that you could do that to fondant and have it not show. This info could come in might handy!!!
Thanks for clarifying CakeMommy!
