I saw that Applegum had a method where you put the fondant through a pasta machine to get it all the same thickness and then use a circle tip (I'd probably use a larger one) to cut out the exact same size of fondant each time and then just roll it in a ball.

I do that. For small balls I use an icing tip but for the large balls - the ones the size of a gum ball I use round circle cutters and then just roll it between my palms until its a ball. I dont use a pasta machine - just the spacer rings on the rolling pin.

Many thanks for that brilliant suggestion.
So simple, when you know how!

I use an icing tip. The lager the tip the larger the ball.
