All cake makers have asked this question at one point and it is almost impossible to judge by eye until you become a cake decorating wizard.
At Cake Stands we understand the struggle to make sure you have the correct amount of icing to cover your cake, that is why we have put together this handy Fondant Icing Guide so you will never be stuck again.
Our guide helps you to work out how much icing is needed depending on the size, depth and shape of your cake. We have also supplied the amounts of icing required in imperial and metric measurements so you don't have to worry about converting them. We just recommend that you use either all imperial or all metric when working out the icing so you get the correct amount.
We hope that this guide helps you. For more handy baking tips keep revisiting our blog page.
