Using a rolling pin, gently roll out a small portion of the fondant to about 1/8-inch thick. Use a little bit of powdered sugar to keep it from sticking and make it easier to roll.

With a sharp paring knife, cut out the fondant into rectangles about 1-inch in width and 1/2-inch in length.  Place a small amount of chocolate frosting on the back of to fondant to help glue on top of the cupcakes.
