Hello - just after some advice for the best way to cover a cake board in fabric. Do you then need to cover the fabric with plastic or cellophane?

Any help much appreciated icon_smile.gif

I've used fabric for a cake board before and yes, you definitely want to cover it with cellophane. I've heard of people who've used clear contact paper on top, but I'm afraid to use it because it's not food safe. I found a roll of clear cellophane at Michael's in the gift wrap aisle that clearly says on it that it's food-safe. I put it over the fabric and taped it on the back and it worked just fine. Good luck!

You can cover it with clear contact paper. You just need to have a separate cake board under the bottom tier of the cake so that the cake doesn't sit directly on top of the contact paper.

I've covered the fabric on my board with clear contact paper, and it worked very well. thumbs_up.gif

Thanks so much for your input!

I decided to go with clear contact, and it worked really well - better than it does on school books, anyway! lol

I will remember to put a cake board under the bottom tier.

Thank you very much, folks icon_smile.gif
