A bride would like 150 cupcake toppers, and in order to give her a price I am trying to estimate how much fondant I will need if I was cutting a  round shape to place on top of each one (the large round cutter from the 3 pc wilton metal set). Any idea how much fondant I would need? Here, the premade fondant comes in 4 lb tubs, if that helps.

Thanks in advance!

For me, I would charge .75-1.75 each depending on the type topper. For me, that is the difference in price between a what I charge for a standard cupcake with just frosting, and a cupcake with a topper. .75 being a circle cutout or something with monograms and 1.75 each being 3D type.
