what is the trick to getting them all the same size for a border?
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.

I have the molds and they work fine, i just want something a little bigger.
thanks for all the help.
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.
