ALol, what a funny cake!!! It's not much different than one color. Since most people don't like fondant I would not cover the cake (I'm talking about the left side since the right piece is red only) in yellow completely and apply red as sort of like a second layer on top. Think that is too much. Just cover it in yellow, but then cut of the yellow fondant where the red one will start with an extractor knife / scalpel. Next roll out the red fondant, cut the sort of wave shape it has on top, and carefully lift in over the cake. Make sure you start with placing it down onto to cake with that red wave first (slightly overlapping the yellow and then smooth as usual. You can use some edible glue or water to stick the red overlapping fondant to the yellow underneath. Does that make sense? Don't really know how to explain...

AI would cover the cake partially with the two different colours of fondant, allowing a little overlap where they will meet. Then I would use a knife to cut the wavy joining line through both fondants. Lift up the top fondant, remove the excess fondant below from the other colour and then re-lay the top fondant.

It's easier to do than to explain sorry! If at the join the yellow fondant is under the red, cut through both colours, lift the red fondant, remove the excess yellow underneath and drop the red back into place. This will give you a fairly smooth join which you can then pipe over or use an extruded to give the thin white rope which hides the join.

Post again if you still don't understand, I don't think I'm being very clear. I can see it clearly - but there is a large gap between my brain and my fingers.......
