Not sure if this was posted before.
How much fondant do you think it will take to cover a 10 x3, 8x3, and a 6x3 cake? I was thinking about getting 10 lbs of fondant. Is that too much?

Are these round or square?

6 1/2 for all the rounds

7 1/2 for square

I just used a 10lb bag and covered all three paisley cakes that are 9 x 6 in.,12¾ x 9 in. and 17 x 12 with some left over. I think you would be fine.
