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
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.
