I have very limited experience with fondant, but I do know you can pull it off, re-knead and re-apply the fondant. (I'd scrape off any icing or crumbs)

Practice makes perfect.

*Your cakes are awesome, just re-do it!

Good Luck to you!

I have never put fondant over fondant. I just take it off, scrap off the frosting, refrost cake and put fondant back on. It takes very little time and allows you to keep your work at the level you want

I've pulled off more fondant than any one person should be allowed to! I've also on a couple of occasions rolled the fondant so thin that I couldn't get it off. In that case I've misted the cake with water to make it sticky and covered over it with another layer of fondant and it worked out great!
