Anyone ever used wood to make a cake board/base? I usually adhere fondant to a cake drum with piping gel...but I'm using a wood base for an upcoming cake and I'm wondering if piping gel is the best thing to use or if something else would be better...? I'm traveling a long way with the cake and want it to be as stable as possible!

How about foamcore adhered to the wood with double side tape or even a strong glue?

As long as the adhesive has no chance of contaminating the cake ie; fix the board to the wood, allow to dry and set and then use DS tape to attach another thin card with the cake?

I often used painted boards, often covered w/freezer paper for my cake bases.  Just put your cake on a cake cardboard the same size as the cake, As other posters said, double sided tape is great for adhering.
