    Kinda looks like some sort of beetle, red grapevine beetle?

    Kind of looks like you either made your own marshmallow fondant too wet. Or if you bought the fondant, you were working under hot conditions which made it sticky and crack. Everything needs to be completely cool, and you need a good rolling pin to get that really thin layer of fondant. The original cake doesn’t look that hard–just meticulous and time consuming.

    I agree that it looks too greasy. Fondant takes practice. There are lots of fondant basics videos online, if you’re interested. Don’t give up! But that cake is definitely not for beginners. I think you made the best of the situation!
