How much Marzipan and Sugarpaste do I need to cover my Cake?
The quantities below are approximate. In the majority of cases you will require more paste than you actually use, to efficiently and neatly place it on the cake. There will always be offcuts which may be stored in an airtight bag until required, or may be frozen.
Roll out icing as far as possible to the shape and size required to cover the cake. A good thickness is approx 8mm but you may wish to vary this.
