I made a cake for a client and the board was too short. I didn't notice until I frosted it. This is a half sheet cake so I can"t move it on to another board. What do I do? I thought about putting another board and putting the boarder on that. Is that too tacky?

It sounds like that might be your only option. I'm sure you can make a neat looking border that will look like you meant it to be that way! Good luck!

I don't think it would be too tacky. I did a 1/4 sheet cake yesterday and I frosted it on a board that was the size of the cake and then put it on a larger board/plate. The border covered up the first board. From what I understand, this is usually what is done because it gives extra support.

Not that experienced, so maybe more experienced decorators will have other suggestions.

Good luck

Thank you, that's the only thing I could think of too. I have the rest of the boarder completed. Do I taped the two board together or put a non stick pad between the two so that they don't come apart?

don't know if this would work...
but could you cut the rest of the board off tightly around the edges.
then move the whole thing on to a larger board and put a border over the edge.
