A great tip I found was to roll the fondant a bit larger than you need for your cake. This way the ripples are away from your cake once your cake is covered. Then unfold the ripples as you would with a skirt. After you have smoothed it with your hands use your fondant smoothing paddles. And do check out the videos online. There are many techniques and you are bound to find one that works for you. Good luck!
