I have used white butcher paper and the Wilton foil papers to cover boards. I have bought, not used, shelf liner paper. Any other suggestions on papers that will not absorb the grease?

Whatever you use make sure it is food safe. gift wrap is fine if you cover it withplastic wrap or cellophane.

I thought of the gift wrap and knew it was not grease proof. Never thought of using cellophane over it. Good thought.

You have to buy food safe cellphane, though. Michael's sells it. Things like Contact paper are NOT food safe, and a cake should not be placed directly on it. I buy a huge roll of FDA approved cellophane at Michael's. I can then cover a cake board with whatever I want and not worry. I have used gift wrap, vinyl tablecloths, sewing patterns, comic book pages, etc. etc.

tracey1970, what section of Michael's do you find the food safe cellophane?

It's in with the gift wrap. I looked for it in the cake stuff aisles, but no dice. I found it with the other gift wraps. They have a couple of different widths of it - I believe the logo is a bagpiper or something like that.

Is the contact paper food safe if you leave the backing on?

What is the indicator that something is food safe?

There are certain kinds of gift wrap that are grease proof. You just have to find it. My brother gave me a case of this stuff its great.

Contact paper is not food safe, backing on it or not. I have used it to cover something on a ckae board. However, I then place the cake on a same-sized board before putting it on the Contact paper. Once you do a bottom border, you can't tell it's on another board. If something is food safe, there will be an FDA approval on it.
