My apologies if this topic has been covered - I've searched it and just can't find what I'm looking for.

I plan to make MFF today for the first time (gulp!), so if anyone could answer quickly, I'll be forever grateful!

I will cover 12" and 8" rounds, both 4" high. The 8" will also have a tier cap of another color, and I'll do ruffles and other decorations with fondant.

Will two batches of MFF be enough? If so, will one batch cover both layers, or will I have to use part of the second?

How thin should I roll the fondant to cover the layers?

Thanks a bunch!

I don't know how much MMF each batch makes, but I love this chart. I roll my fondant between 1/8 and 1/4 of an inch thick. Just make sure that your cake is iced perfectly smooth with a thin layer of buttercream, or else your cake will turn out lumpy and bumpy. Good luck!
