Sorry for this question, you all probably here it all the time. I am doing my cake for my course 3 class and i know that i am supposed to cut a cake board to fit the bottom of my 8"sq pan, but am i supposed to cover that with fancy foil as well as the base board? or what? Im sorry Im kinda confused. (Going to be my first fondant covered cake)
I just use the uncovered board! It just gives you a sturdy base so you can lift the cake onto the covered cake board later. One thing I should mention is to cut the base board to the cake, not the pan!! HTH!
i have a board under the cake (cut to the cake size) then i put the board and cake on a decorated, bigger cake board (cake drum) for presentation.
