Hi everyone,
How do you determine how much icing to make? I'm hoping to make the giant 3D cupcake cake for my DD's first birthday party. I have no idea how much icing to make.

In general, how do you estimate how much to make for this and other projects? Thanks in advance.

The rule of thumb for buttercream is one recipe of icing using 2 pounds of sugar for each cake mix used.
