If someone has already asked this question then I'm really sorry. I couldn't find it through search and it would have taken me forever to go through the entire forum. Anyways - does anyone happen to have a chart or something that shows about how much frosting (measured in cups for example) it usually takes to frost different sizes of cakes? It doesn't have to be exact, just close. I'm always either making too much or too little and it is driving me nuts lol. If anyone could help I would really appreciate it. Thanks!

I never measure my icing so I don't know how much it yields. I always make a double batch. If I have any left over I just save it for the next cake.

Never really thought about how much is in a recipe. I use Sugarshack's recipe for 4 cups of shortening. But, I almost always have left over (better that than not enough) and I just freeze it and do cupcakes for friends and family members when I'm in a hurry, so I never really have left overs.
