It's not easy. what I find works best is to make sure the crumb coat is a pretty thin layer, and/or is good and hard (I put mine in the fridge or freezer for a while before covering them). that keeps the frosting from oozing out the bottom.
The other thing I found that works is to put a bowl with a small bottom under the cake when I'm covering it, so the cake is up high enough so I can get my hands in pretty far on the bottom side of the cake.
I find that I have to really work it by pulling the fondant out and working it down a little at a time all the way around, or I get ridges of folded fondant. It takes longer than covering a regular cake, but it can be done.
I hope that helps! Best of luck! the cake will be super cute!

I did a call cake and covered it with bc, I can't imagine using fondant on it, for me it would be so hard, anyway I really hate doing this cake. It was so hard to keep the top part from sinking into the the bottom part. but then I'm a beginner maybe if I had more experience... Good luck with the cake please let me know who it comes out... thanks.
