Ok so Im making a 3 tier wedding cake covered in fondant. I bought the thick silver cake drum from wilton to set the cake on. It says its strong enough to hold tier cakes. I without thinking iced the "12 cake directly on the silver board(without a cardboard circle) Do you think it will start to soften the board by tomorrow? I will be stacking it tonight so If you think I should move it and put it on a cardboard circle and THEN the siver board please let me know. I hope this makes sense lol

the base looks like this

those wilton cake bases/drums are grease-resistant. they'll be fine!

from their website:


Convenient 1/2 in. thick silver-covered bases are grease-resistant, food-safe and reusable. Strong to hold heavy decorated cakes without additional serving plate. Perfect for all types of cakes and craft creations - fondant cakes, stacked tiers, gingerbread houses, school projects and more!

I *always* put the bottom tier directly on the drum. Always.
