Very easy, forgiving fondant recipe for this first-timer! I will definitely make it again.
I read the tips in these reviews and found them VERY helpful, especially the ones about spreading regular frosting on the cake first so the fondant sticks, and rolling between two sheets of wax paper. Worked like a charm! I also used half butter and half shortening and everyone at the party raved about how good the frosting tasted. I didn't find the "greasy" texture to be a problem. In fact, it allowed me to smooth the fondant with my fingers and repair little bubbles and cracks.
Addendum: Just taught my almost-8-year-old Cub Scout how to make this. This time, we used all shortening and it tasted just as good. He had fun and it turned out great!
