I am making a 3 tier round wedding cake, a 16, 10, 8 for 150 people. How much fondant or how many pounds of fondant will I need?
I am making one the same size. I can't wait to find out the right answer. When I added it up it was something like 126 oz which I think was like 5.4 lbs. or something. I'm terrible at math so someone else I'm sure could tell you better than me.
If you are doing 2 layers for each tier with 2" pans, you will need the following:
16" round - 4 pounds
10" round - 20 oz
8" round - 16 oz
These are approx, of course, it all depends on how thick you roll it. Post pics when you are done so we can see the cakes!
Thank you guys that was helpful especially the websites.
