Cake Boards

A cake board is the perfect base for any celebration cake and come in a variety of thicknesses:

Cut edge card - 1.1 mm thick, suitable for gateaux and a cost effective base for light sponge cakes

Single thick card  - 2mm thick, ideal for plaques, small cakes and gateaux, not recommended for rich fruit or large iced sponge cakes

Hardboard - 4mm thick, sturdy and do not bend, ideal to use under sponges, rich fruit cakes and when you need thinner boards for stacked  and tiered cakes

Drum - 12mm thick suitable for sponge and fruit cakes and recommended for use under heavy cakes and as the bottom tier of a stacked cake. They can also be decorated with a complementary ribbon applied with double-sided tape.

4mm, 6mm & 12mm thick Masonite boards, made from a pressure moulded hardboard that is engineered to be strong, sturdy and able to support a substantial weight making them ideal for multi-tiered celebration cakes (please note, these boards come up a fraction of an inch smaller than the size stated so that they fit perfectly into the same size box and also helps if you are using them as the base of a cake when being stacked!)

Don't forget to store and transport your finished cake in one of our cake boxes which are not only designed to fit the boards snugly but also cater for the taller and heavier cakes. For more shapes, sizes and colours, browse our full selection of boards something to suit any occasion and design.
