I am making the following cake:

(Sorry, the picture wouldn't upload). I am wondering if there are ways to make the lines of pink fondant (I'm using purple) to stay the same thickness. How do I cut them?

ANY tips of advice is so appreciated!
Thanks!!

I use the Wilton rolling pin that has guides to slip on the ends and keep the fondant rolled to the same thickness. I purchased a Ribbon cutter tool that allows you to cut ribbons in various widths. I bought mine from Sharon Zambito, I think, (sugaredproductions.com) but I'm sure Global Sugar Arts and other vendors probably sell them as well. They are not sold a hobby stores like Michael's, Hobby Lobby and Jo-Ann's though.

My dad made me a "double pizza cutter" out of two 99 cent pizza cutters. I can take it apart and add different sized nuts and bolts to make it wider etc.... He just took them each apart and found bolts that fit in the hole in the center, then I just add different sized nuts to the center and of course on the outside of each cutter to keep it in place. So easy =) But I do wish it could do different edges like a ribbon cutter can.
