Hello fellow CC'rs!!! I am getting ready to make a HUGE quinceanera cake for 200 people. *gasps* I'm trying to figure out how much fondant I will need to cover a four tier cake, measuring 10", 8", 6", 4", with three 10" cakes around it. I make my cakes all 4" tall. Help! Thanks in advance for all your helpfull advice!
You can look at this & figure it up.....www.earlenescakes.com/Fondant chart.html
I would say one 25 pound pail will do. My cherry blossom cake in my photos was 4 tiers and were each 5 1/2 inches tall 16, 12, 8, and 6" and I still had enough fondant to make 2 10" rounds later on...
