Like heart, hex, petal etc? There was a website called logicpic, but I can't get in anymore. The only other sites I was able to find were in the UK.

Dallas doesn't sell cake DRUMS. They sell cake DUMMIES.

Drums in shapes other than square, round, and rectangular can be tough to locate--and they're heavy so they're expensive to ship.

I've ordered them from Creative Cutters, when I haven't cut and covered my own using 1/2 inch foamcore.

Try getting a foam core from the craft store, trace the pattern you want, then cut it with a heated styrofoam cutter. I got a little battery operated cutter in the floral department for about $15 and it slices through smooth as a hot knife through butter.

Just curious--What is a cake drum?

angelwings1 - they are a really thick/sturdy base for your cake. Instead of a cake board, which is usually 1 piece of cardboard thick, the drum is several layers thick. Great for big heavy cakes icon_smile.gif
