Hi everyone. I'm stumped as to how much fondant is required to cover a 22 inch cake drum (covering the top only). If anyone could help me figure this out it would be much appreciated. Thanks.

You will be covering just the top surface of the drum? If so, it would be like covering a 14" round that is 4" high (14+4+4=22). According to the chart on Global's website, 72 oz - 2 pounds - would be needed.

You may get by with a bit less if you aren't texturing it and can roll it really thin.....
