I've noticed that some of you are using decorative wrapping to cover your cake boards to match your theme. Such as Sponge Bob to match a Sponge Bob cake. What are you using? Just gift wrap or is it something else?

I use wrapping paper or fabric. Just remember to cover that with something clear like contact paper. thumbs_up.gif

Yes I see that too. And it always looks great. I would love to know what you use for it also.

So you cover it with any wrapping paper you want and then cover over it with the clear contact paper? Sounds easy enough. Gives you a ton more variety for covering board. I think I am going to try that.

One extra step you can take is to wipe the clear contact paper with everclear, that kills germs from handling and also helps get rid of the static that that stuff always has. I take a little jar of it and a clean white washcloth to the venue and wipe around the outer edge, once the cake has been set up.

Scrapbook paper with clear contact is good too. I started using it when I couldn't find enough variety with wrapping paper...
