I was taught to mix flavored vodkas in the fondant. The alcohol evaporates. I have been using raspberry. You don't really taste it but it is tastier. They say to put a crumb coat of BC which is a really thin layer. I've read that people put some sort of jam or other coatings on too. What I discovered recently, I don't trim the fondant that much until I have it as smooth as I can get it. The buttercream doesn't ooze out & make your fingers all messy.
