Cake Boards

Cake boards (drums) come in all shapes, sizes, thicknesses and now fabulous colours, from cut edge cake boards to cake drums.  At Sugarbliss Cake Craft & Decorating Shop, we stock and supply a wide selection of cake boards and cards for you to choose from.

 

There is a vast range of sizes from 3 inch to 20 plus inches and various shapes such as, square, round, oblong, heart, petal, oval and hexagon shaped cake boards.

 

The latest additions to our fantastic range of cake boards include the green, cream and the very popular purple cake boards. The coloured boards do mean that you can create a real wow factor to all your cakes, without having to ice the board, saving precious time and sugar paste. Also, don’t think you have to dispose of a board once it has been used. You can keep it as a working board or re- cover with silver or gold covering paper (pack of 5 sheets) available in our cake craft shop.

 

Please find below a quick guide to all the boards available and their uses!

 

Cut edge (1mm)- silver

 

These cards are suitable for use with lighter gateaux and sponges. The edge is cut, showing the inner card, with the silver paper covering the top only and are available in round only.

 

Single thick (2mm)- silver

 

Once again these cards are suitable for gateaux and sponge cakes, but a little thicker and stronger than cut edge.  Can be used when assembling a wedding or multi tiered cake design, where the upper tiers are sponge, and a thin hidden board of the same size as the cake is needed.  These cake cards are available in round and square and in all sizes from  inch  to 12 inch.

 

Double thick (3mm) – silver and festive (Christmas) Cake Cards Turn Edge

 

These cards are much stronger, will support heavier fruit cakes and larger, heavier sponges.The foil is turned so covering the inner card. Recommended use for any multi tiered cake with slightly heavier upper tiers that require a hidden board the same size as the cake.  Available in all sizes from 6 inch to 14 inch plus.

 

Hardboard (3mm)- silver

 

If you require an ultra strong but thin board, then this is the one you should use and are available in round and square from  6 inches to 16inches.

 

Drums (12mm)- silver (all shapes) and gold (round /square only)

 

Extremely strong, and will support any cake, whether sponge or fruit. They are usually used for the base of multi tiered cakes or for other celebration cakes.  The size required for a sponge cake would generally be 2 to 3 inch larger than the cake itself.  For a fruit cake which is marzipanned and iced you should use a drum board that is 3 inches larger.  You can  increase the board size if you are adding decorations or wish to off set the cake towards the back. Cake boards can also enhance the final appearance of your cake if you ice to the edge of the board and then add ribbon(use 15 mm if iced) around the boards edge to match or contrast against the decoration on the cake. The drums are available in round or square from 6 inch to 20 inches and also in various different shapes.

 

Log (2mm)- Silver and festive(Christmas)

 

These cake cards measures 8 inches x 4 inches and are ideal for any slab shaped cake, but especially your Christmas logs.

Modelling tools  Our range of modelling tools can be used to model sugar paste, marzipan, claydough etc. Modelling tools used on any edible products should be kept separate from tools used on non-food materials. Each tool is designed to perform a specific function so it is important to choose the right modelling tools for the right job. If you’re not sure which one you need, you can select one of our sets which contains a selection of the most popular modelling tools. bone tool, ball tool, sugarcraft knife, bulbous cone, Flower/leaf shaper and double ended cutting wheel are the most used or you can buy a complete set of 8.
