How to keep your fondant covered board from scratching

I just read on Facebook about a way to make your covered cake boards scratch and dent-proof.

Cover cake board and/or drum with fondant, as you would normally do. Place it in a 170 degree oven for approximately 15 minutes. Fondant will harden and will keep from scratching or denting. I have not tried it yet, but I thought I’d share it in case you want to try it. If it works as it showed on the video, it would be an awesome time saver.

Do not try it with cake board made out of styrofoam as it will melt and give off nasty gases.

MsGF ...

Sounds like a good way to dry the fondant quick. I usually cover my cake drums a few days or more before the cake is to be picked up or delivered. So I don’t usually have the scratching and denting trouble. But I will keep this method in mind for those last minute orders.

Thanks for sharing.

Thanks for sharing, DJ! That is actually quite brilliant.

I do this all the time…they are as hard as cement. I’ve made and dried a board in a couple of hours using just the light in my oven..
