I have noticed in alot of my cakes that they often have a oily ring around them. I buy my icing in bulk (Sams), could this be the problem. Or is there something I should be doing different?

Do you cover your cakeboards? I use Glad Press N Seal to cover my cakeboards before placing any cake on top. If the board is the bottom presentation board, I cover with FanciFoil or fondant.

I use dollies alot but that shows as well. I will try the Glad and see how that works out.


BTW, will the MMF work ?

You can also use coordinating wrapping paper covered with clear contact paper (I find at Wal-Mart where they have rolls of shelf paper).

Either line with fancy foil, or get wax-lined boards. What's happening is the grease/fat from your icing is soaking thru the cardboard.
