According to the Wilton charts you will need at least 15-1/2 cups to frost (and decorate) your round wedding cakes.

If using frosting as filling and for other than basic decorations - you will need more.

FYI, here are the Wilton cake preparation and serving charts:

tippyad, it's not possible to call when I'm on the computer as we only have one phone line. icon_sad.gif

But you can certainly pm me; I'd be happy to help you find whatever info you're looking for. icon_cool.gif

And thanks for the kind words, you made my day. icon_biggrin.gif

No extra icing decorations.. only bead border. I am doing the diamond pattern...oh, I will be adding dots, but that is it..

May I'll mak up another batch, just to be sure.
