It's uncertain who said it, or if it was even said at all... it is commonly attributed to Mary Antionette, although there is no actual record of her having actually said this, and it was actually "brioche", not "cake". Another biographer claimed that Marie-Therese was the one who had said it, although this claim was equally unsupported.

Do you put frosting over a cake board when cake is separated by wine glasses?

No.A different answer:Yes, it is important to cover the cake board with frosting (icing) regardless of how the layers are separated. But one needs to use Royal Frosting, which is made with egg whites and dries quite hard, rather than buttercream frosting which remains greasy and can slip and slide. The Royal Frosting not only disguises the cardboard cake board but also helps to hold the pillars or wine glasses in place.
