I love the look of fondant icing cakes with the little balls round the edges but its really hard to get them perfectly round. i use a cutter to make all the pieces the same size but they arent perfect balls no matter how much i roll them!! Does anyone have any tips?

hummmm that link doesn't seem to work.

Roll out your fondant to an even thickness, then use different round tips to cut out circles of fondant; roll; lay on thicknesses of paper towels &/or soft foam to dry.
Also check out Earlene Moore's site. She has a step by step on making pearls (at least she used to).

I love that tutorial! I did a ball border about a month ago and it came in handy and worked great! Use the side of your one hand and the palm of your other hand! It really does make a difference in how your balls look!
