Why does rolled fondant often cracks and tearing?
There are several different reason why it cracks, here are some ideas:
Not enough kneading time, what this means that the rolled fondant is still in stiff status. Give it more kneading time. Don't knead too much all at one time.
The fondant is already aged due to time in transit or sitting on some warehouse.
It may be just not a good quality rolled fondant to begin with.
