In order for me to get perfectly frosted cake I need to use acrylic disks.   I am currently using the disks that are over sized by 0.5 inches.  I am wondering if that is too much frosting to place fondant.   I am wondering if I should only use acrylic discs that only are over sized by 0.25 inches.

I would like the 1/2  inch because that will give you 1/4 inch around the cake.  I think that's a good amount. 1/8 inch is too thin, imho.  I use at least 1/4 inch and I don't have any issues with fondant, haven't had the dreaded bulge yet:)

Have you used them with fondant yet?

No I haven't use them with fondant yet.  I am hoping to try it this week.  I will let you know how it goes.  I am worried that using the 0.5 inch over sized disks will have to much frosting in the cake.
