How far in advance can I cover my cakeboards with fondant?

We've covered the ones we've done two to three days in advance. We'd love to hear how others have done it.

Would like to know this too.

On my Dior shoe cake I didn't do it in advance and ended up covering the board and cake with the one piece of fondant, what an experience!

Will do this again though as I liked the look!

Having said that it would be nice to have a few boards done up in advance.

I've done them a week in advance. By the time I was ready to use it, the fondant was completely dry. I didn't have to worry about leaving any marks or prints in it. It worked great.

I don't completely cover my boards as I feel it is a waste of fondant. I cover the cake on the plain board first, then I add a strip of fondant to the board around the cake. thumbs_up.gif
