I was okay rolling fondant until my last few weeks, but did find the best option was having my husband roll it out for me. Timing didn't always work out though. Congrats!

Try microwaving your fondant a VERY little bit, this will soften it up and make it much easier to work with. Also, try rolling out your fondant on a table that's lower, rather than a regular countertop height if you can, this also makes it much easier! icon_smile.gif

If possible maybe use/buy a pasta machine?
