Instructions and Tips for Use
Cake drums will take the weight of any cake whether fruit or sponge and are perfect for tiered wedding cakes as they will support the weight without distortion.
If using with a fruit cake it is a good idea to ice the board and cake separately and then position the covered cake onto the covered board as the acid in the fruit may react with the foil of the board. The join between cake and board can then be finished with ribbon, piping or a decorative design in sugarpaste.
If you prefer to cover the cake and board all in one a piece of greaseproof paper the same size and shape as the cake can be placed under the cake to do the same job.
Because cake drums are 12mm thick you can give a professional and attractive finish by attaching ribbon to the side of the cake board to match with the colours in your cake.
Choose a board 2"-3" larger than your cake size depending on decoration.
