How much fondant do I need to cover a 10" 8" and 6" cake that are 4" high. I am making my own fondant and am not sure how much to make.

Thanks Sue

There is a really handy chart from Satin Ice posted on the Global Sugar Art website here
According to this chart, you will need about 5 pounds (4 1/2 by my calculations).

Also, what fondant are you planning to use? It sometimes depend on the fondant and how thin you roll it.

One batch of MFF is enough fondant for two 6" tiers, two 8" tiers, and two 10" tiers. With some left over. But I roll mine to 1/16th an inch thin too.
