I only recently starting covering my board with fondant. On smaller cakes, I've just placed the cake on the cardboards wraped in foil and then covered the exposed edges with fondant. On some larger cakes where I used plywood or foamcore base, I've covered the entire board straight with fondant then set the cake on top. It is more work, but IMHO it makes the entire cake look better!
