AIs the weather different than it usually is? Humidity can effect the fondant. It's possible you rolled it just a little too thin? I'm still trying to master decorating with fondant so I could be wrong. I have been told by several people that they take a needle and poke into the cake (at an angle so you can't see the hole) which will let the air out as the cake settles and not bubble up. Good luck!

AYep, the rain will do it!! I'm going to start making it a habit to put just a couple pin holes in all my fondant cakes from now on to avoid the dreaded bulge!
