I want to cover a wood board with fondant.....do I need to cover it with decorators paper and then frosting and fondant or can I just put the fondant on top of the wood and call it a day? Thanks

I've never done it but I'd guess that it depends it you intend it to be eaten...I'd probably cover it in wax paper first. No sense in wasting fancy paper that won't even be seen.

I would just roll the fondant straight onto the board. As long as it will stick, you don't need anything underneath.

I covered a wooden board my husband cut me for my niece's wedding cake recently - I spread a thin layer of royal icing over the board first then covered it with fondant a couple of days before the wedding. It worked out great. The royal made sure the fondant would stick where I wanted and not come up off the edges.

I cover all my cake boards first with a thin coat of watered down piping gel it sticks great and the fondant doesn't move around.
