I have my sister engagement cake coming up at the end of the month. It is going to be a 4 tiered round cake {12",10",8",6"). Can I use a round drum board? Or do you recommend an actual wood board. Also, with a wood board, how would you cover it with fondant?
Since it is wood, can I use a square (since i can get it cut at a hardware store).
Thank you for any insight
Oh, and about refrigeration. 2 of the cakes are red velvet cake with chocolate mousse filling, and 2 are a coconut cake with cream and pineapple filling. All covered in fondant. Since it is going to be stacked, it might not fit it m fridge.
Can it stay outside until the next day? Or will it go bad?

You can cover a wooden board with fondant, no probs, just wet it with water and sponge or use corn syrup sparingly

I wouldn't risk leaving it out. If you have to, do a huge clean out of the fridge and remove a shelf. Or, if possible, finish stacking closer to party time.

a cake drum should be strong enough.
