How much Sugarpaste do i need to cover a cake ?

How much Sugarpaste do i need to cover a cake ?

One of the main questions we get asked in our shop is "how much sugar paste do I need for my cake ?" 

The answer of course largely depends on how thick you roll your icing.

We usually recommend rolling out your icing to a thickness of about 5mm, this is because at this thickness the icing should be fairly easy to handle ( without tearing ).

This is also a good thickness to cover any unevenness in your cake after crumb coating it with butter cream 

To help you we do have PME marzipan spacers  in our shop , which you can use to help you get a consistent thickness whilst rolling out your sugarpaste  - go have a look .
