Hey all,
I'm putting this out to all of the experts who are used to using fondant in making their cakes...I'm putting together what I hope will be a 4 tier cake based on an awesome design featured on this site...The top tier is 4" and is a cake dummy which I've already covered.

The other tiers are 6", 8" and 10". All aprox. 5" high..How much fondant should I expect its going to take to cover these 3 tiers?

I purchased a 5 pound bucked of Satin Ice and am thinking its not going to be enough..Darn it!

Thanks for your help..
