I've used clear contact paper (with backing attached) in the past to do chocolate wraps. I've only done 2. I'm sure that's not food safe. I don't know where to get acetate. What else can I use?

I'm sure there are internet sites available to order acetate from.

I used parchment paper when I've made mine - I just folded it in half lengthwise, so that it was a bit stiffer and easier to work with. However, for my first try, I did have to have a second set of hands to help make sure that I had the bottom flush with the cake bottom, and to hold the paper stiff until I had to all the way around.

I use freezer paper.....folded into thirds to make it a little easier to handle. It's cheap, easily available and you can cut it to the exact length you need.

Aaah, I have parchment paper. I'll play with it tonight and if I don't like it I'll get some freezer paper. Thanks!
