Cake drum boards measure approximately 0.5 inches thick. They are a more heavy duty board than regular 3mm or 4mm thick ones, and are designed to be able to carry heavier cakes, such as fruit cakes, and multi-tiered wedding cakes.
Drum boards that are two inches bigger than the largest tier are generally used. For example, if you are baking a 12 inch cake, you will need a 14 inch drum board.
Cake boards can come in a variety of different sizes, shapes, and even thicknesses, meaning there is a cake board out there for your cake.
These cake boards are made from compressed wood, and covered with a food safe silver foil, which lets cakes be placed upon this, without it touching the wood.
