Okay, I am starting to look at pricing to order cake circles and boxes in bulk as the orders have started coming in. What do you use most? Do you use the single layer cake boards or 1/2" cake drums? Also where have you found the best prices?
Thanks in advance!! thumbs_up.gif

For drums, check out these prices...
or find your local paper supply warehouse.

I like to use drums for both single and tiered cakes. I will use an 8" drum for a 6" cake. I just think it looks nicer and it's not as flimsy. I don't like having to cover a cardboard round with foil. The drums you can use plain, flood with royal icing, or cover with fondant. I just think they look more professional.

For a single tier 8" or 10" I use a single thickness of foam core (3/16") covered with fondant. Larger single tiers and all multi-tiered cakes get a double thickness (so 3/8") for either a more balanced look or stability.

Yes cake drums definitely look better!
