    Hello friends! I just love the fact that there is ap lace that we all can come to to task our questions and to help other people out.


    Anyway.... I am doing another wedding cake but this time the customer wants chocolate fondant. I have never made it before. Do I just replace some of my powdered sugar and use cocoa powder?

    Also... does anyone have a ratio for how many ounces of rolled fondant it takes to cover a cake (be it any inches).

    Thank you!

    I have never made choc. fondant, but there are a multitude of companies that sell it pre-made. Here are a few:

    Cal Java in CA. www.cakevisions.com

    www.RolledFondant.com , which sells the brand Satin Ice

    www.globalsugarart.com , which has this and a ton of other supplies

    Albert Uster also sells a great white choc. fondant.

    As for the amounts to use, Colette Peters suggests the following:

    6" 1 1/2#
    8" 2#
    10" 2 1/2#
    12" 3#
    14" 4#
    16" 5#
    For sq. cakes increase the poundage for each by 1/2# or more for larger cakes.

    From experience I can tell you that 13# will easily cover 6,9,12,16 and have some left over for borders or what not. Hope this helps. Let us know how it turns out.

    I am fan of Choco-pan. They sell white chocolate and dark chocolate rolled fondant (caramel, too). It is the tastiest fondant I have ever come across. You can find it here:
