I know I saw a thread at some point giving some tips about making cake boards but I forgot to mark it to read later. What are you guys using to make thick cake boards? Is it plywood or is there a trick I am missing? I am making an apple crate next weekend and I would love to make a board covered in fondant to go with it. What do I make the board out of?
Thanks for all the info! This site is awesome!
Some people use wood, some use masonite boards, some use 1/2 inch foam core. Whatever is sturdy enough is fine. If I'm doing a heavy cake, I usually use 1/2 inch plywood. My local lumbaryard will cut me an 18X18 or so for less than $5.
Yep......she^^^^'s got the right idea. It does depend a bit on the size of the cake.
I usually use two or three sheets of cardboard. If I know I am going to making an especially heavy cake, I'll use plywood as well.
Thanks for all the info everyone! I think I will have to go to Lowe's and get some plywood and then dig out my trusty circular saw for sure! This apple cake is gonna be a heavy one! lol
foam board from the craft shop if i know it won't get back to me or masonite if i know they'll return it.
