Not sure how else to describe what I am trying to do, other than roll my fondant into nice (as long as possible) thin snakes!

Is there a trick to this nicely? I am finding it hard to do on the benchtop, and to get them nice and even along the 'snake'.

I am aiming to them about 1/4" (diameter) thick.

TIA!

3 words. Makins clay extruder. Hopefully u can find it out there, if not, order one OL. Trust me, it's worth it.

I use a clay extruder. It makes it very even

A very helpful way to make the logs even and smooth is to use a fondant smoother to roll them out. Just apply light pressure to start and more pressure to make the log thin out. You can get a super fine, long log if needed.

Works like a charm!

Or use the same technique as KimAZ suggested but instead of the fondant smoother try a cardboard round or even a full sheet board <- 24" of flat rolling space!
