This has probably been asked already...

But after covering a cake drum w/ fondant and letting it dry (for about a week), can I place the cake directly on it, or should it be on a cake board?

Do I need to worry about the moisture in the cake seeping into the fondant and bleeding?

Please help!

I always have my cakes on a cardboard or foamcore the same size as the cake and use a larger tuffboard while decorating. I transfer to the fondant covered board (just cake with cardboard) right before I add the bottom border. The cardboard should help with most moisture. I've never had a problem.

I also use a cake board. It has never been a problem and I have never had to worry about moisture. I think it's better safe than sorry.

You can try this technique, too. Saves on fondant.
