yes it will fade when you smooth it , I find you have to be very exact when you cover with a patterned fondant , it has to go on exactly with no room for error or much smoothing.

For a round cake, instead of putting the large piece of fondant over the cake and smoothing down, you could try this: Roll out and trim down to a piece that measures the height of the cake/tier by the circumference. That you could fit around the cake without too much stretching. Then roll out and trim down to a circle the size of the cake top and place that on top. Then you would have to find a solution for where they join - piping? crimping?

It's an idea.

I had watched this video earlier and thought it may help you. She uses a mat (which I use) but regardless it's worth watching.

Rose,
If you try the two-piece method, please let us know how it worked out.

If you go to this Amazon page:
http://www.amazon.com/Complete-Photo-Guide-Cake-Decorating/dp/1589236696/ref=sr_1_2?s=books&ie=UTF8&qid=1344659098&sr=1-2&keywords=Fondant+Modeling+for+Cake+Decorators
and use the "Look inside" feature you can scroll down to a demonstration of someone using the 2-piece method with textured green fondant.
