I recently watched the vidoes about icing a cake with ganache and read an article about icing a cake with ganache from a blog. In both cases, the baker was from AU and used these silver cake boards. The boards appeared to be stronger than cardboard cake boards and they had a solid edge (like cake drum) which I liked.

Can I buy these anywhere in the US?

Don't know where you can buy them, but they are made from mdf, a type of wood. Mine are usually 6mm thick, but use 12mm - 18mm for larger stacked cakes.

No one in the US knows where I can buy them?

I tried a google search already, but I wasn't sure what the boards are called. When I searched by "cake boards" only cardboard ones popped up. I then tried "silver cake boards" and then cake drums popped up.

This place is both a retail and wholesale outlet in Australia that sells those boards. They might be able to help you out if you contact them

I get large sheets of mdf & my husband & I cut them to size,
It works out a lot cheaper than buying them precut...
Is this not an option?
I would think it would be a lot cheaper than importing them...
