CLICK AND COLLECT - At the moment we have problems with our click and collect service and have temporarily suspended this service. We will be sending all orders out by first class post as usual but for the time being we will be unable to deal with collections from our warehouse. We are sorry for the inconvenience and hope to be back to normal very shortly.
Hardboards are strong boards suitable for all types of cakes. Firm enough to hold fruit cakes, these boards are made of 4mm thick hardboard covered in food safe foil. They are available as square and round boards in silver and Christmas patterned foil.
What Size Board Do I Need?
This depends on the decoration that you intend to add to your cake but as a general rule you need to have a board 2 - 3" larger than your cake. If you have overhanging decorations such as sprays of sugar flower you may be better with a bigger board still. Novelty cakes of course have different rules and it will depend on the decorations you want to add to your board as to the finished size you will need.
For a 3 tier wedding cake which measures 6", 8" and 10" I would generally use boards measuring 8", 10" and 13". The bottom board is slightly bigger to give 'weight' to the balance of the cake but also because a lot of the overhanging decoration may be on the bottom tier and the larger board will offer more protection when the cake is boxed.
