Questions:

How many would I need to order to cover 8" and 12" round cakes?
How much chocolate will I need? Will a one pound bag be enough?
How difficult is it to cover a cake dummy with them?

TIA!!!

Chocolate transfer sheets come in different lengths, so it would depend on the transfer sheet you bought! For the wedding cake in my avatar, I used 1 full sheet and part of another.
Yes, a pound of chocolate should be fine. You use a fairly thin layer of chocolate.
I've never covered a dummy, so I can't help you there!

Country Kitchen has 10x16 sheets...so probably 2 would be enough? (math is not my stong suit)

According to Earlene's chart, and 8 inch cake is 25 inches around. A 12 inch cake is 38 inches around. That means you'll need 63 inches of length minimum. If your sheets are cut in half lengthwise, making them 5 inch tall, you'll have 4, 16 inch sheets, or 64 inches worth. I wouldn't cut it that close! I'd order 3 sheets.
