Hi there!

 

I am making a 2 tiered cake and am wondering if I have enough Buttercream for it.

 

I have 3.4 lbs (1543g) of buttercream. (or a recipe made with 2lbs of butter)

 

The cake is 8" bottom, 6" top. I need to fill the top tier (bottom tier will be a different buttercream) and I need to ice the whole cake. I will not be using fondant, just buttercream.

 

So will what I have be enough?
