What is the best method of covering a cake drum with fondant? How do you avoid the bumps on the side of the drum if the customer doesn't want ribbon around the side?

I don't think it's necessary to cover the side of the drum with anything. It's already sealed with pressed foil. If they don't want a ribbon with their choice of color, they get whatever color the drum is.

I'll second that.

Fondant on the vertical edge of the drum is prone to cracking or breaking off--and that looks a lot worse than a foil wrapped edge.

I covered a cake drum once and it was actually easy! Just like covering a cake with fondant just roll it out a little thinner. I trimmed the excess and didnt add a ribbon. I liked the finished look it gave my cake.
