Hi everyone!  I was hoping someone could help me with a couple of quick questions.  I am making a "pregnant belly cake" for a baby shower.  I am using the small/large sports ball pans for the boobs and belly, and I am stacking it on a 11x15 sheet cake.  I don't work with fondant too often, and I don't know how much I will need to cover this cake.  Can anyone help me figure this out?  I am planning to order my fondant online, and I really don't want to order too much, or worse--not have enough.  Also, how thin do you recommend I roll it to cover this much height?  Ugh...fondant stresses me out!  Haha!

Hi, yes can be tricky with how much you will use depending on the thickness you roll it out.  I would try the site where you plan to order the fondant and see what the size of the container (pounds) etc. you order covers.  Probably will have the information you need there.  Good Luck..
