I use plywood for my cakeboards and cover them in cake foil that I buy at the local craft store. Hubby cut them to size so I have a bunch of different size boards I use. Just gotta remember to tell the cake recipient to give them back when the party is over.

Yes, just cut some round, some square, some rectangle.... I grabbed a few of my most common pans and then added 4 inches on to the size of the pans so that when I placed the cake on the boards - there would be 2 inches all the way around of extra board. 1 inch really isn't enough space once you have the cake on it and then you have to take into consideration when you add icing to your cake it will add more inches to the total circumfrence of the cake. Hope this helps. thumbs_up.gif
