I am making my cousins bridal shower cake for this weekend. The cake will be a 6 and 10 round cake covered in light green fondant with chocolate circles and dots covering the cakes. Do you think one pound of chocolate fondant would be enough for these sizes or do you think I would need to purchase two pounds. Thank you.

Hi, the 6in cake should take about 1 pound to cover and the 10in should take about 2 1/2 pounds. So if you get a 5 pound bucket, you will be able to cover both your cakes, add your decorations etc without any problems. HTH. GOOD LUCK|

I only need to know how much chocolate fondant for the decorations not covering the cakes. The cakes will be covered with marshmallow fondant and the circles and dots will be in chocolate. Do you think I will need one or two pounds just for the decorations. Thank you.

I would get 2 pounds just to be safe. Plus it also depends on how large your circles and dots are going to be. But, all in all I would get 2 pounds. That way you don't have to worry about running out. Your mind wb at ease as you decorate.

I'd get more than you think you'll need! I always make just enough icing for my cakes and am usually running around trying to make more last minute!
