I have been using hard plastic wedding plates. Sometimes, I do not get them back as quickly as I would like. I am a little worried about using a plain cake board. Will it get soggy from the icing? I am getting more orders for multi layered cakes and was wanting an easier route. I don't want to have to chase my supplies down. Any suggestions? Thanks

I'm assuming you mean for stacked cakes? Yes, I use cardboard only. Cardboard is made of, um, you know ... CARDBOARD! icon_biggrin.gif It's not rice paper. It's not going to get soggy and disintegrate. I make my cakes on Thrusday for a Sat wedding. I stay and cut most of my cakes so I see personally the condition of the cardboard.

They hold up fine.

And of course, I use SPS. There's a plastic plate and one cardboard between the tiers.

I second the motion to use cardboard!

Do you wrap the cardboard with something?
