Is there a chart somewhere that shows the amounts of FondX Elite necessary to cover various size cakes? The only fondant chart I know of is the Wilton one, and that's pretty useless for FondX, which requires so much less.
This one is from Global Sugar Art. They sell Satin Ice and Fondx
Thanks. That one gives the same amounts as the Wilton one, though, and doesn't distinguish between different brands that require different quantities.
I honestly have never heard of using different amounts of fondant depending on the brand. Every chart I have seen says the same thing.You may just have to do trial and error or Google it.
Well, if FondX Elite can roll out to 1/16", then it's obviously not going to take as much to cover a cake as it would a fondant that needs to be 1/4" thick. I was just hoping that someone who had used it more extensively had made a chart. I make a couple of wedding cakes a year, so I can't afford to experiment. I couldn't find anything on Google, which is why I asked here.
That sounded a bit snippy. Yeesh. I was just saying I hadn't heard of it. I have never used it that type of fondant. Was just trying to help.
Well, 1/16th is one fourth (25 percent) of 1/4th, so wouldn't you use one fourth the amount of fondant if you are rolling it to 1/16th inch instead of 1/4 inch? Just adjust your chart accordingly.
bct -- No snippiness intended.
liz -- I thought about that, but wondered if they might have different densities, and therefore that formula wouldn't quite work.
