I know a lot of people use fondant to cover the board but I have seen what looks like wrapping paper also. Can I really use wrapping paper to cover a cake drum or would that not be a good idea?

You can cover your boards in wrapping paper, or contact paper, just be sure that you then cover that in good plastic wrap. I have done this and had no problems. Hope that helps.

I do not cover cake drums. They are already covered.

you can also cover them with butcher paper, they have a waxey side that is water proof and grease proof.

Sure. It's a nice way to jazz it up. Just be sure that anything that will be eaten doesn't touch the wrapping paper--the inks often have lead in them.

Put a barrier of another cake board between the cake and the covered board and if the icing border extends beyond the cake board, put a piece of parchment under it and make sure it's hidden by the border.
