Can I place a cake directly on a fondant c0vered board without a cardboard under the cake? Also, Satin Ice seems very strectchy and gets too stretchy when lifted...any suggestions?

Yes, you can put the cake directly on the fondant covered board---but I wouldn't. The board under the tier makes it easier to move around, etc. Also, the fondant under the cake will get sticky (nasty) and will come up with the cut cake. It just wouldn't be my choice, personally.

As for the stretchiness of SI, I combat that by adding in 1/3 Wilton. You get a firmer fondant that works well without sacrificing taste or texture.

I have put it directly on the fondant but it gets really messy when cutting the cake....but it doesn't hurt it! HTH!!!

I also find that covering the whole board is not only costly but causes more wrinkles, puffiness etc. that just doesn't look neat.
I have gone to putting the cake/board onto the cake base/board, then cutting and rolling up a "border" of fondant and unrolling it "around" the edge of the cake works much better. (Like in SugarShacks video?)

I just use my fondant smoother to ease it into the cake edge and it goes on much neater. (I put down a bit of piping gel first on the board edge to make it adhere).
I hope thats clear!
