Thanks

I'm pretty sure all my suppliers only offer even sizes.

It seems strange to me that they make the odd size pans, which I use all the time, but don't make the cake drums. What do others use?

I have tried cutting them from foamcore, but the round ones are hard to cut.

did you try Dallas Foam?
They can do custom ones, not sure if they offer odd ones with standard pricing though.

I've never seen a cake drum used the same size as the cake. It's usually larger than the cake. So just get an even-sized drum and you have a slightly larger (or smaller) border around the cake.

I use 1/4" cake drums for all my tiers, then 1/2 for the base. I think they hold up better than the cardboards.
