What do you use to wrap your cake boards? I want to use something that looks nice but is also cost friendly.

Just thought there should be some great ideas here. icon_wink.gif

I've seen alot of people use wrapping paper and then they cover with plastic wrap. I've never tried it though! I just try to buy the cake drums but they are expensive.

One can use *anything*: foils, fzr paper; fabric; wrapping paper; mylar; etc etc. to cover your boards but.......then you have to either cover it w/contact paper, or cellophane or something that is grease proof &/OR put the cake on a same size cake board that is glued to that covering.

You can also cover your boards with fondant.

That's exactly what I was going to say! I buy my Fancifoil at Walmart because it is so much cheaper. You could always get it at Michael's or Hobby Lobby if you were willing to use one of your 40% off coupons on it. But it's quick and easy!

Be careful, though--because other than Wilton Fanci-Foil (gold & silver--I believe the white has been discontinued), very few other decorative foils are foodsafe. icon_eek.gif

If it's not marked foodsafe, then the foil may have lead in it (in particular if it's colored) and that leaches into fatty & acidic foods. There needs to be a barrier (cake board, parchment, wax paper, etc.) between the cake & the foil, if this is the case.
