Or you can cover the whole board and then put your cake on top.

Use normal fondant, so long as you can keep it in a box so dust doesn't get on it and in a cool dry place, you can cover it months in advance (providing its the whole board your covering).

It's always good to stick a ribbon around the edge to cover the silver of the drum, it gives it a professional finish. Just glue it on using a normal glue stick.
