Does anyone have a good source for ordering lucite or acrylic board - 1/2in thick. I need ovals, circles and hexagon shapes.
hmmm good question that I would like to know too! Here's a BUMP!
I did not find any websites that sells them individually.
How about just going to the hardware store and get it cut in circles or to the size you want ?
I use plexiglass to roll out my Fondant and I got it from
Orchard Supply Hardware.
Here are a couple of sources:
Tap Plastics will custom cut shapes or add holes for you (extra charge applies) and their shipping was fairly quick when I had an order. They now carry larger circles and under the "new" products menu they have simple cake stands. I've since found a local shop that carries the same products.
Really nice acrylic bases but I would be wary of a very heavy cake with these - they are not cheap either:
thanks cakebox for the quick reply
Thanks for the information on Tapp Plastics. I have been seeking acrylic rods, and they have them cut to order!
Thank you Cakebox. I have just placed my fisrt order and can't wait for them to get here!
This helps a lot! I do a lot of odd size cakes (current fave is the 7 inch round) -- this will help a lot! Thanks for sharing! :D
Just ordered an acrylic round and square to try the upside-down icing method from a store in Texas. Fingers crossed.
AI read on their site that Cake Safe will be carrying them shortly, they are a great company.
I ordered from 4"-12" round and square. All really nice. They will cut to your specific size.
Not sure what TAP is like online, but I got info from a local store and they wanted a couple hundred bucks for cut to order acrylic discs. Um, no. I probably spent $50 total for all the above with shipping.
You can also get them from: Barb at email@example.com. Custom sizes in circles, squares and rectangles. Two instructors, Mayen from Way Beyond Cakes at facebook and Kara from Sift by Kara uses them. It's a Mom and Pop business.
You can also get the Acrylic Disks from CakeSafe, check them out here: https://www.cakesafe.com/products/buttercream-acrylic-disks
You can order straight from their site, they have pretty good prices and quick customer service!
