While cake boards add a professional aspect to your cake presentation they also help with the stability of your cakes for transportation and the placement of each tier.
Thin boards are best used for single tier cakes or for stability between layers in multi-tier cakes. Drum boards are used as a bottom base on large multi-tier cakes.
We carry thin cake boards in both round and square starting at 4 " and up. Thicker 1/2" drum cake boards come in rounds and square starting at 6" and up. Both boards and drums come in silver and limited sizes on white.
We also carry extra thin cake boards that are gold on one side and silver on the other. These boards are great for lighter cakes (smash cakes ), presentation of single desserts or can also be used for support and stability between the layers of multi-tier cakes.
How big of a cake board do you need on the bottom tier? The general rule of thumb is 2 to 3 inches larger than your bottom tier cake. This will also depend on how much decorating will be placed on the bottom tier cake board. If you plan to have large flowers or other large decorations you will need to account for the extra room with a larger cake board.
