I have a question about how to keep cakes stable on a cakeboard covered with fondant. I usually tape the bottom of the board the cake is on to the top of the big cake board. But if it is covered in fondant I am sure the tape won't work to keep it in place. I'm sure someone here has a very clever solution to this. Thanks!

Blob of royal icing.

How about a little bit of frosting on top of the fondant as glue?

Oh, and for cakes going on a regular board I use a blob of glue instead (board to board, not glue touching cake of course)

Just cut out the fondant on the cake board so that the layer fits inside the fondant. Place a dollop of icing in the center of the board to secure it. The outer edge of the fondant will hold the layer in place. Does that make sense? I use it this way all the time.

Aine2 has a great picture tutorial on covering your board with fondant. She doesn't cover the whole board just the part around the cake.
