I'm not sure how big those pans are, but I would guess that 1kg won't be enough.

One kg wont be enough for both. Minimum 2kgs if not 2.5kg. they are approximately 12 3/4 x 8 1/2" x2 in dimensions. Better have on hand 2.5kg

Here's a great chart for another brand of fondant that shows amounts needed by tier size. You can download it as well as a color mixing guide here:

Please be sure to note that the guide is for covering only and not for any other decorations you might be adding. Best to have too much than not enough.
