Any tips for covering 5" tall dummies with fondant? I keep getting tearing at the top. I've rolled it 1/8" thin and tried to work fast, I've rolled it thick and its still happening.... help!

Roll the top edge on your counter to take the sharpness off of it. You can take a (clean) nail file to the edge. Not enough to make it rounded, but just to take the tooth off of it. I spray them with water so that the fondant sticks and the weight doesn't pull so much.
