I want a white cake drum but can only find wiltons cake drums which are silver! So how do I go about making my own!? I was looking at 1/2" think poster board, but wouldn't that show grease ring/ stain around the cake?

You can cover it with white foil or order white cake drums online.

I usually glue several cake boards together then cover them in any of the foils wilton sells and they end up being pretty strong. HTH!

Thank you!! I have looked on a few websites and most were sold out of the size I need or they were sold in bulk! Can I find this white foil at craft stores (michaels)

Okay this may sound really stupid, but from my understanding a cake drum is like a bunch of cardboard cake boards glued together then covered with fani-foil. If i am right.......I thought you can also use Masonite as a cake base, if that's the case why go to the hardware store and get a sheet then you can cut the shape and size you need and then just cover it with the fanci foil or whatever. I only ask cause the craft store is about an hour drive away from me, so it's far and few times I make the trip. If i am totally wrong then please tell me what a cake board is. Thank you.
