This link is to Wilton's serving/batter/baking time guide. In it you will find the approx amounts of icing you will need to ice and decorate a cake. The various sheet sizes are listed as well.

and here is a link to a thread that has frequently used acronyms on CC (great for newbies and oldies alike):
