Can I use fabric to cover my board and if I can how do I prevent the cake from getting grease on the fabric. also how do you attach fabric ribbons to a BC cake, with out staining them???? I appreicate all your CAKE WISDOM..LOL Thank s in advance you people are lifesavers!!!!!!!
I've used fabric before on board. I just put clear celphane(spelling???) over it. That way you can still see the fabric and the grease won't penetrate the clear plastic. I've not attached fabric ribbons before but I suppose that if your icing is crusted well it won't stain much. I'm sure someone else will know.
Some people also cover the fabric with clear shelf liner (contact paper).
Anyone have any other good ideas on what to cover a cake board with??? Thanks!!
Sometimes I cover my cake boards with wrapping paper to match the theme of the cake. You have to cover the wrapping paper with clear contact paper .
For the ribbon, you can iron it between two sheets of waxed paper. That will help prevent the staining.
Just so you know, there was a treat last year where someone contacted the people that make contact paper and although it is safe for us to place our glasses and dishes on. The contact paper is not food safe, so you would still have to place your cake on a smaller cake round so there is not cake touching the board.
I do this a lot and I use melted candymelts to "glue the small cake board to decorated one and it does not move.
I cannot find the post right now... I that is what I do.
I have used fabric to cover cake boards, & yes I also use plastic wrap over the fabric.
In the attached picture I used Little mermaid fabric to match the cake theme.
