Sounds like your fondant is too dry and rolled out too thin. Use more shortening and kneed it some more. I've noticed that mine cracks when I roll it out too much. Hope this helps.

And if you do get cracks, melt some fondant and use it like spackle icon_smile.gif

What do you hav e the cake on? It's possible the bottom board is not sturdy enough. Double your cake board or use something more durable.
