Single Thick Cake Cards are normally around 1.5mm-2mm thick, lightweight cards designed for sponge cakes and have properly wrapped edges and white paper underside for a finished look. This finish is essentially what differentiates them from cut edge cake cards.
Inexpensive and normally only available in round or square, single thick cake boards are good quality and able to hold smaller decorated cakes safely. Cake Stuff recommend that if you need 11"-12" or above, you consider the stronger double thick cards or even cake drums, as single thick cake cards will bend under weight, which can cause the icing to crack.
Cake Stuff source all our cake boards from the UK's top two manufacturers... we do not import cheap cake boards. All Cake Stuff cake boards are manufactured to British Standards in fully licensed, hygienic UK factories. What's more, all our cake boards are sprayed with a microscopically thin film of invisible, odourless and totally flavourless antiseptic wax which prevents any bacterial growth. This, combined with our own hygienic storage and handling, allows us to sell single cake boards safely . . . simply wipe lightly before use.
PLEASE NOTE . . . all cake boards are traditionally hand finished so please allow a certain amount of variation in size and finish. Please also note that the special food-approved paper covering may be in either "fern" (see cake drums) or "maple" (see hardboard cards) finish. Shaped cake drums are largely hand-made, so variations of up to ½" in overall size should be allowed with larger sizes from around 14" upwards. Small folds, creases, scratches and dents in the covering paper and a natural "bend" on thinner cards are all features occasionally found in the hand-finished product and are not considered faults.
Please also note actual thickness of cards may prove slightly less due to boards compacting in storage (often stored several hundred deep).
NON-UK CUSTOMERS PLEASE NOTE boards over 10" are too large for Air Mail. Similarly, full packs of boards are normally too heavy for Air Mail.
