How can I fondant a tall 12" (3 layers) chef's hat easier? I can't roll out fondant big enough to cover that tall, all sides, so what's the best technique into doing this? Thanks!

so the band on the bottom is 4"?

 

some of those are all folded you could hide a seam in the folds

Yep.  I've done it.  Band around the bottom and then vertical strips.  Circle on top.  Oh - put the circle on  top on before the vertical strips, then fold down the top edge of the vertical strips over the edge of the circle.
