What kind of filling did you use?  What was the consistency of your buttercream?  Did you allow your filled and iced cake to settle a bit before adding the fondant?  Did you give the top of your cake, after you filled it, a nice press down?  If you used a different filling besides the buttercream, did you use a damn of stiff icing between the layers?

I find that bulging occurs because your cake has settled and your filling/buttercream is to thin causing things to start squishing/bulging.

Also, there is a new member delay (I think it is like 30 days or something) where you can't respond to any posts, even your own.  So just make a new post to respond.

As K8 mentioned there is more information needed to help you     How much buttercream did you apply before adding the fondant?   What do you mean by covered in buttercream & found it?  Are you saying that you covered it w/fondant after it sat overnight?

there is some kind of new member delay on being able to "reply" to posts so please start a new thread to continue any discussion -- at some point all of a sudden you will be enabled to "reply" but not for a while -- maybe like 30 days — I think it might have to do with time and activity levels -- please respond by starting a new thread, referring to this one if you need/want to —
