Hi. I'm making a life size skateboard cake for my nephew and want to cover the entire 20x30 foamcore board in fondant? Does anyone have any idea how much fondant I'd need? Any other tips appreciated too as it's my first time using fondant on a base.

Oh, and does anyone know if Amerimist airbrush food color spray can be used in place of the soft gel colors? I was wondering if I could mix it right into the fondant rather than spray it on.

Thanks! I've been lurking on this board for about a month and I am in awe of the talent here. icon_smile.gif
