I use butter in my icing and it doesn't bubble. so don't worry about that! You might be putting the fondant on too thick, sometimes when you do that the weight of the fondant will pull itself down a little, and the bottom edge against the board will prevent it from moving, but the top part will shift, and you'll get a bubble. Does that make sense? It makes sense in my head, hahaha! If the fondant is rolled thin enough you don't usually get that happening, so the bubble would be because of air inside the cake.
