1. You may not be letting your cakes settle.

2. You may not be running your kinife along the bottom edge to break the seal between the icing and the board.

3. Typing in all caps is the written equivalent of screaming at us.

Do you chill your cakes before applying fondant?
I know that as they warm, the cake releases air and can cause bubbles under the fondant. This is what was happening to me last summer.
When I get a bubble I use a sterilized very fine needle and at a 45 degree angle poke a hole, then smooth back over it with my smoother.
I hope this helps.

also if you buff or rub the fondant too much this can cause the fondant to stretch, so buff the surface lightly to smooth
