Yes, there is a secret. It's called a clay gun or clay extruder.

You can find them in the clay section of the craft store. My favorite is this one:

it also helps to use half fondant and half gumpaste - the added gumpast makes it more stretchy & pliable .. and your able to roll it alot smaller than with fondant alone .. HTH!

There is a tip with the clay extruder that looks like 3 over lapping circles. If you use this, you can just twist a single extracted string and it looks like rope. Took me a while to figure out what that particular tip was for but it works great. I use it on almost all of my cakes for menicon_smile.gif
