The cake in the picture is smoothed buttercream with a fondant drape. If you did it that way, you wouldn't need more than a pound of fondant...but I'd order some tylose too, to knead into the fondant to make doing the drape easier.

If the tiers are 12", 10", 8", 6" x4" then I would say you would need about 10lbs. But I would definitely wait to see what other say before you order. icon_smile.gif I may be off.

I was thinking ten also. Start with the biggest tier and work your way down.
