I am having a heck of a time with my fondant! It looks perfect at first but later that day i see lines in the final finish. I am attaching pics so you can see!


What can I do to prevent this?

That is the dreaded cake bulge.   Try using a really stiff buttercream dam a half inch around the filling.  Let it settle after filling for about 3 hours with a tile or book on top of the cake to push the air out.  I also let it settle more after crumb coat and icing before I put fondant on the cake.   Hope this will help.
