I am looking to make a faux cake stand using gumpaste/fondant. Ron Ben Israel makes them very well. The cake is elevated on a Styrofoam and looks like it is standing on a sugar cake stand. Here is a link:
Because the bottom tier is larger than the Styrofoam underneath, I am wondering how to support the bottom tier. A thin 1/8 inch or even a 1/4 inch cake board would not be strong enough. Do you think that a 1/2 inch drum board would be sufficient? Such as this one:
Unfortunately, it has been a challenge to find round Masonite boards in my region.
i'd use 1/2 foamcoare --
