roll out a chunk of fondant to an even thickness and then use a round cookie cutter (I use the back end of my decorating tip) the thicker your fondant/ the bigger your cutter the bigger your beat will be!

Once you cut out circles, just roll them in your hand and they'll all be the same size!

thanks, all i could picture was a scoop of some kind and knew that wasn't going to work.

You can also purchase molds, if you want to do a string of beads/pearls.

I roll out a long rope of fondant and cut at half-inch increments so they are all exactly the same size.

You can use measuring spoons also...push fondant into the 1/2" spoon, run your thumb around the edge to cut away any excess, pop the fondant out and finish rolling.
