the cardboard covering in not greaseproof, but the foam in the middle kind of is. It is basically poster board glued on to a foam middle.

No....they are not greaseproof....I cover them with either clear contac or fancifoil. when I use them. Lowes also sells metallic contac paper that is awesome.

I would love to find some metallic contact paper. That would save me an extra step. Do you remember which section it's located in @ Lowe's?
Thanks!

If you use metallic or printed Contac(t) paper on your boards, please make sure that you have a barrier (parchment, wax paper, clear Contac(t) paper) between it and anything edible (cake, icing, etc.) because the metallic and printed Contac(t) papers have LEAD in the inks and that lead leaches into foods, particularly acidic and grease laden foods--like cake and icing.
