Card, Board & Drums Stock

Due to a global shortage of card & fibreboard, we are experiencing difficulty in obtaining a regular supply of cake boards and drums. We are doing everything possible to provide basic sizes but supplies are sporadic and only popular sizes of round and square are currently being made. There are no supplies available of oblong or coloured drums and these are not being made at the moment by manufacturers.

Being the most popular type of cake board we sell cake drums are particularly vulnerable to stock delays. If you can't find the cake drum you need, you might consider checking out our range of hardboards or cake cards for an alternative.

Cake Drum Boards

Cake drum boards or just cake drums are ½” or 12mm thick. They are constructed of compressed paper, cut to size and then covered with a hygienic foil layer which your cake stands on.

These cake boards are remarkably strong and ideal for fruit cake or sponge and perfect for tiered Wedding Cakes.

When choosing your cake board we recommend you get a board 2-3" bigger than your cake. It is however not uncommon to choose an even larger board and use the extra space for adding more decorations, wording and details.

Cake boards can be easily covered in sugarpaste to create a range of different colours and textures, for example; water, wood grain, sand, grass and much more. The thicker depth of cake drums also means you can add a ribbon to the drum for even more decoration, a 15mm ribbon is ideal for using with cake boards.

We stock a large range of cake drum boards in sizes and shapes to suit just about all requirements.
