    for rolling out the pastry vs to roll out the pastry

    Hello.

    The first sentence comes from online dictionary http://www.oxfordlearnersdictionarie...ce_1?q=surface (3), the secend one I've created by myself. Is my sentence correct and natural? If "yes" am I right they mean the same?

    1. You'll need a large smooth surface for rolling out the pastry.

    2. You'll need a large smooth surface to roll out the pastry.

    Re: for rolling out the pastry vs to roll out the pastry

    Aside from the fact that a pedant will tell you that both suggest that the large smooth surface will be rolling out the pastry, they're both OK and they mean the same.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
