I see the most beautiful cakes on here with a decorative & colorful paper covering the cake board to match the theme of the cake. I love it! But I'm lost, what are people using and where can I get it! Thanks so much for you help!

You can find this at a cake supply store locally or order on-line. I know Hobby Lobby has silver and gold (expensive!)

Others may have more specifics.

I don't remember who posted it (I'm sorry for not giving credit, because it's an AWESOME idea!) but they brought up the Press'n'Seal Glad wrap. I tried it out on a cake I have due Thursday. I took some cute wrapping paper, covered my heavy duty cardboard cake board, and used the press'n'seal stuff over top and over the sides. It sealed down like a dream!! And you can use whatever wrapping paper you want to match themes and such! I was SO excited to find this tecnique. Again THANKYOU whoever posted it! It's awesome!!

I use wrapping paper or coloured tissue paper and then cover it with the clear cello wrap . I usually get everything from the dollar store. I have also heard of people using contact paper to cover the boards.

A lot of us use wrapping paper. I can find so many options with wrapping paper.. and cheap too!! Once I have my cake board covered in the paper, I put clear contact paper over it to seal it!! Works great everytime!!!

I find scrapbook paper to match my theme and then cover it with the clear contact paper. I didn't think about the Glad Press n Seal! I have some of that at home! Cool idea!
