Common Questions When Using Cake Boards

Cake board is really a common and a necessary part of our cake making process.

For some novices, there are some questions.

What size cake board do I need? 

When acting as a base for your cake, you should allow for about 2" - 4" of clearance on each side of your cake. So, your cake board should be 4" - 8" larger than your cake. For cake drums that are used in between tiers, they should be the same size as your cake.

Can I cut a cake board to the size I need? 

Yes you can, just be sure to use heavy-duty scissors or another sharp tool to avoid frayed or jagged edges.

Can I use a cake board with a cake box? 

Yes! In fact, you should always use a cake board when putting a cake into a box since cake boxes are prone to bending under the weight, so without the support of the cake board your cake would bend as well.

Why are the actual dimensions of my cake board slightly smaller than expected?

To make it easy to pair cake circles with their appropriate boxes, some items are commonly listed as being the same size as the cake box. However, to allow them to fit inside the cake box, their actual measurements will be slightly smaller than the box itself.

Should I put my cake on the board before or after icing? 

Either way works. If you place the cake on the board before icing, then you don't need to worry about messing up your decorations by transferring it later.

Do you have to use cake boards when stacking cakes?

If you're stacking any heavy cake, or any cake larger than 6" in diameter, you absolutely should use a board or drum between the tiers. Even with smaller cakes, it is recommended to use them if you intend to stack more than two tiers.

Terms to Know When Shopping for Cake Boards
