Do you mean the bulges around the sides? There can be a number of causes for that.   Are you letting you cakes settle after you fill them but before you cover in fondant?  Do you use a good stiff dam of buttercream to help reduce filling from coming out?  Both will help reduce bulges.  I typically fill, let them settle for at least a few hours, then crumb coat and refrigerate, then cover in fondant and back in the fridge until delivery/pick-up.  I do this even though I can't use fillings/buttercreams that need to be refrigerated simply for the ease of decorating and stability.
