You'd have to cover it just like you do for a regular cake board.

You don't have to cover "regular cake boards" and I don't cover my foamcore boards.

I sanitize them by wiping them with clear drinking alcohol or vanilla extract. I learned this process from Colette Peters several years ago, and there was no mention of needing to cover the boards at the time.

I find that the paper coating on the foamcore boards is very tough and doesn't shred easily even after having had a cake sit on it.

Blakescakes: How about when you put your middle dowel through all three tiers? Will the foam inside broke into the cake? I'm a little concern. Thank you!

No, when you central dowel a cake with foamcore boards, the sharpened dowel goes thru very smoothly, leaving a clean hole in the foam and nothing else.
