For those of you suggesting the dollar store and any other store where things are on a shelf being touched by who knows who with who knows what germs on their hands, in addition to the wonderful sanitizing suggestions above, I would also suggest buying them in bulk from a supplier. Chances are, only one person touched those before being shipped to you.

Absolutely foam core for ANY heavy cake!!! I use 1/2 " for the base, covered with cake foil, and don't have to worry about someone else picking it up and having it crack in the middle because the regular cake cardboard flexed! It cuts easily with a utility knife. The only problem I've had is that it often makes the cake too big for the standard box.
