I have read many great ideas regarding cake boards but would like CC members thoughts on coverings. I understand that florist foil is unsafe for food use as it comes off in the icing and can be ingested. And regular foil seems plain to me and is easily cut up by the cutting knife.

What about fabric? What other coverings do you use for your cake boards?

Thank you so much for your replies! birthday.gif

I usually use different designs & colors of contact paper. Also I found brightly colored poster board for .50 per sheet. I cut it out to size of board, lay it on top, then cover in clear contact paper. This can work with material or most anything I suppose.

I use colored Royal Icing on Foamcore board. I got the idea from Colette Peters.
I just got tired of buying foil. icon_lol.gif

I use fondant on foamcore. It's fun to match the cake.
