What kind of board is best for a 5 Tier Wedding Cake? She want's each tier to be 4" tall. I bought some 1/2" Foam Core and was going to double it, but I'm thinking maybe I need to use a thick wooden board. What do you all use? This is my first Wedding Cake for a Customer and am soooo nervous.

I am interested in learning this too. I have never had to do a large cake, but have a 4 tiered cake coming up and wasn't sure what to use.

I always use English style drums. Lightweight but strong.

Hmmm . . . nothing came up when you Googled it? odd . . . It's a foil covered board 1/2" thick, lightweight and strong. You can get them at most any cake supplies store or online store.

It was a long week, never even dawned on me to try google. Thank you leahs for your help.

Once you started explaining it I knew exactly what you were talking about.
