Just wondering if 5 lbs would be enough to cover my 6/8/10 tiered cake and then the 12 " cake drum?

I usually make MMF, but my test run didn't go so well last night (although it was VERY humid here in WNY).

Any thoughts would be appreciated.

Global Sugar Art has a chart for how much fondant is needed for different sized/shaped cakes. http://www.globalsugarart.com/?id=24

looks like you could squeeze those out of 5lbs. but you wouldn't have much wiggle room.

My vote would be YES!

I made 3 lbs of MMF for my son's birthday cake, which was a 10" and an 8". I also used some of the MMF to construct large teddy bears, AND to decorate, and I still had plenty left over.
