right now i have some plywood that i cover for cake boards since i make mostly 11x15 and they get heavy. Just curious to find out what you all use for your cakeboards.
Would it be rude to ask for the boards back? Right now i only make for family and friends so i have no problem getting them back.
Leann,I have a cake supply store and I sell an assortment of boards.
that's what I use mostly but if I use a piece of plywood I take a deposit for the board. Of course they get their deposit back when they return my board. People don't seem to mind me asking for the board back.
Is there a supply shop near you? If so check it out.
If I know I am making a heavy cake (any size/shape) I use plywood and get it back..... most of the time.
I also use foam core boards, cut with a craft knife (X-Acto) around the circumference of a cake pan. I sometimes use 2 or 3 layers held together with a dab of royal icing between then covered with foil.
