Roll the fondant through a pasta machine so it's all the same thickness. Then cut it out (with whatever will give you the size you want) and roll them into balls. They will all be the same size. It still takes some time, but it does speeds the process up a bit. thumbs_up.gif HTH

What I like to do is after rolling out the fondant, I use a round cookie cutter usually the medium sized one. I just roll a ball out of the cutout and end up with uniform balls, very quick and easy. If I need them smaller I simply cut the cutout in half ... and there again I'm sure if they need to be even smaller they can be halved again. Works with any size round cookie cutter. You can see what I mean in my photos ... (giggle giggle icon_rolleyes.gif I know I know I only have 2) >>>> HTH
