I've often seen cakes that are edged around the bottom with little balls of fondant. Does anyone have any tips for making them all the same size? Is there a technique to doing these?

  • roll out sheet of fondant

  • depending upon size needed -- use the piping end of a round icing tip (different size) or use the big open end that goes in bag) to cut out even size circles

  • roll gently to form ball.

  • the trick is even thickness on fondant and using same size tip opening for same size balls.


    buy and use mold.

    see this video (our own toneada shows how)

I like using the molds but if I make bigger onese, I roll out a snake of fondant and cut it then form each one.
