Working on this cake, and it has a gumpaste white board that, in the pic, is propped up against a jar. How can I get this to stand up on the board?

put an easel back on it. Either made of gumpaste set it on an easel.

My first thought would be to glue it to the board with some chocolate.

I don't have time to make an easel or go buy looking more for a home
I'm scared that if I try with RI it will fall over and rip the fondant on the board. I do have some candy melts, are they stronger?

I would use candy melts. Just prop it up while the candy melts cool and get hard.

You could use lollipop sticks or dowels and glue then to the back of the cake with melted chocolate. Once dry stick them into the cake to hold it upright. Even with this method I would transport first then add the board when the cake it at its final destination.

easy easel:

cereal box

cut out front or back

trim along closet matching side to get height needed.

fold that edge over about 1"

fold remaining on diagonal (may not match to bottom exactly -- that's ok, just tape down)

With your candy melts, you can make triangle pieces that can fit behind the white board to act as an easel. Seal the triangles to the white board and your base board. 2 triangles work better than 1.
