I have been covering mine in freezer wrap (looks better than foil). Other ideas?

Also-- I saw some masonite that is probably 1/8" thick. Would that work as a board for tiered cakes-- like a 9 x 13 with some pieces on top?
It just seemed thin and strong and like I could re-use it with new covering.
I have used foam core board before when a standard cake "round" or "rectangle" of corrugated cardboard was the wrong size, but I think the masonite would be stronger.

How do you tell how much a cake board will hold?

Any advice is appreciated.

I don't know about the masonite. What I did was get plywood then dh cut every size and shape I needed from it. I covered with contac paper, and now just decorate with the fancy foil. It makes it so much easier

Thanks, pianocat. How thick is your plywood?

I use chopping board for my cake base, they're available in different sizes and shapes. I cover them with giftwrap paper, match with the cake's theme and design and cover it with contact paper.

I love the chopping board idea! I may have to go look for some.
