No need to 'hope' they're the same size. Roll your fondant to a uniform thickness and use a piping tip of the appropriate size to cut out circles of fondant. Then roll each circle into a 'pearl' of the appropriate shape and size. hth

Life begins at 325° F, and, yes, that IS powdered sugar in my hair.

Yes, the pic that you showed can be done in b/c. It is a beautiful cake. you will do good. Roll the pearls as the op says, drop them in a bag of pearl dust(after they dry) shake them around and empty on a paper towel. You will have beautiful pearls.

Google "Wilton tip 45". It's a large basketweave tip that only does smooth lines, no ridges. It looks like it makes flat "pleats" or lines like in your photo. I agree, though, that fondant buttons look better than the butter cream ones.
