I am making a 6 inch cake and will be using a 6 inch cake board. My question is after I have frosted and covered the cake in fondant, I then want to put the cake on top of a 8 inch cake board. How do I get the cake to stick on the 8 inch cake board and not move around?

I have seen videos use royal icing.

Royal icing or melted chocolate.

double faced tape can also be used.  OR a loop of masking tape or even a generous dab of b'cream will do the job :)

I just did this in a cake workshop...we used good quality masking tape.

and the cake will slosh around on the board when you first place it on the buttercream but move around a tad till it stops moving and it will stay put

slide might be a better word but it just needs to squash out and it will adhere perfectly

-K8memphis, I was always afraid to use buttercream because I thought "won't it slide a lot"? So I guess it doesn't at some point, but nobody ever explained that.

used it for forty years -- easy to the peasy -- but there are those times i hot glued too -- but for any normal set up just a dollop in the center -- not ice the whole board  -- just enough to make it stick --

Thanks for the tip, -K8memphis.
