If your buttercream is not smooth the fondant will not be smooth. After I crumb coat I always put on another layer and smooth it. There are several methods to this. I don't have the link but if you go to CC search and type in Melva and smooth buttercream you would probably find Melva's paper towel technique which I use religiously (always use Viva paper towels though - no texture). HTH Maybe someone else can be more eloquent answering your question.
I am an office manager by day for a construction company and we just changed our name- NIGHTMARE! I m buried in paperwork and contacting everybody that has our original name. Changing over the licenses, worker's comp, liability, vehicle registration, and on...... I know you wouldn't have to do most of that but the name was officially changed in Dec 2013 and I am still dealing with it. Keep your name if you can help it.  On your website, if you have designer contact them...
Some of the best compliments I have gotten are from "Crap" I wanted to throw at the wall (I mean away).  Glad it worked out!
If you have an airbrush you could touch up the color with that, otherwise (unless one of these other talented artists has a better idea) you probably need to start over. (Sorry)
I did Santa's fur (and hat ball) by taking the rolled fondant and then taking a pair of tiny cuticle scissors and just nipping randomly, it turned out great.
WOW! All I could think while scrolling was that their licensing bills must be astronomical...... 
mellee gave you a great link. I have sold cakes in my county. I was told that licenses are subject to each county and city. I live in an unincorporated part of my county so I do not need a license; however, if I sell in a different part I might (there are about 6 cities in our county). Venues also may require that you have a license in order to deliver or serve there. In Bay County you are not required to do anything special. I registered my ficticious (sp?) name with...
Oh gosh, It's been a minute since I actually got it but I think (don't hold me to it) it was probably around $70. I was impatient and thought I had to have it right away. LOL I'm usually better at waiting for a sale price, then hitting it with a coupon but I think I used the coup on a regular price. Black Friday is right around the corner though......
I bought Duff's air brush machine and with Michael's coupons got it for 50% off. I love to add accents and use it for shading.
Vodka evaporates and water just makes the fondant sticky.
