I have some free time today and I was wondering if it would be too early to cover a cake board for a Saturday cake???? icon_cool.gif

If you're covering with fondant, doing it in advance is better, so that it has time to harden before you need it. You might just want to stick it in a box when you're done so it doesn't get dusty.

Ditto Texas Rose - that way it won't dent when you put the cake on it and thus leave bubbles from the weight of the cake.

Same thing goes for Royal icing. As a matter of fact, I should probably get a couple of cake drums covered today ... thanks for the inspiration! icon_wink.gif It's one of those things that, although techinically edible, won't actually get eaten, so it can go for a very long time (as long as you cover it, like Texas_Rose said, so it doesn't get dusty, but not to where it doesn't have air to dry).
