thanks Sweetflowers, I looked at their site and all I see are sheets, not rolls of it to wrap around the whole cake. Maybe these sheets are long enough, I didn't see how long they were.

Anyone buy acetate in rolls?

Misterc, what thickness do you recommend? Thanks for the site info- yes odd name indeed.
BTW I have friends and family spread all over UT.

Well, I couldn't get any around here & was wanting to do it for my dh's bday. I ended up using freezer paper & it worked really well. So, for those of you who can't get it or can't get it in time, freezer paper works.

I have the same problem in North Carolina. Neither Michael's nor AC Moore carried acetate. Somebody suggested I try an office supply store. But I ended up just using parchment paper instead and it worked.

I will admit I got impatient too and I just picked up some vynal from Joann's today. You know the kind that you can cover furniture with. I hope it will still give me the shine I want and that it doesn't poison me. Good to know that freezer paper and parchment work, do you still get the shine with those?

No, parchment doesn't give you the same shine that acetate will. But it gets the job done.

Freezer paper will give the shine, I haven't tried parchment paper. You can get the acetate in rolls in an art supply store (dick blick is an art supply), you'll have to look it up in the phone book. However, I just tape my acetate sheets together to get the length I need. Thickness I think was .05, but .03 worked too.

Michael's & Hobby Lobby carry it in their art department--look for rolls of clear acetate. That's where I get mine.
