As I look around on this site and others, I see some beautifully covered cake boards, and it looks so simple! Im upset that I dont know how to do this seemingly easy task.icon_surprised.gif Can any body tell me or post a link that shows how to cover a cake board in fondant? Thanks so much in advance!

Not sure what everyone else does, but here is what I do:
I have my Dad cut 18inch square boards out of the cheapest plywood I can get. I then use tissue paper or at times fabric to cover the board (tape or staple gun). And then the best part is I use clear contact paper to cover the tissue or fabric. Works like a charm and I have never tried anything else!

You just roll out the fondant and slap it on the boardicon_smile.gif
Actually I haven't done many boards covered in fondant but what few I have done it was a very simple thing......roll out fondant, place on lightly dampened board and cut off excess. Place a ribbon round the edge to cover the board and make it look prettyicon_smile.gif

some of my boards are covered with wrapping paper, then with contact or saran wrap and glued by a glue stick or tape on the backside. Press N Seal works pretty good too. I also have found some vinyl sheets for 50 cents at Michaels in the fabric aisle.
