Hi. I just got a masonite board yesterday from a friend that I would like to use for a cake this weekend. I usually use foam board or cardboard cake circles stacked together. Anyway, what do I cover the masonite with? Its an ugly brownish color so I don't want it to show. I've never used masonite before so I'm not sure what to do! Thanks.
You cover it. Just like any other board. Butcher paper is great. Or Fanci Foil.
You could also cover it with a nice layer of fondant. Glue a ribbon around the edge.
Yeah, that too. Sticks real well to the masonite.
All good suggestions. I prefer freezer paper, but you could use just about anything.
Great! Thanks for the info. I figured you covered it just like anything else but wanted to check for sure.
You can cover it with scrapbook paper and then cover it with clear contact paper as well. And then put the ribbon along the edge as well.
Manufactures of Contact brand paper state their product is not food safe and to have the food items placed on a plate or other food safe barrier between the food and their product.
Just a friendly FYI... and now back to out regularly scheduled programing.
I love covered boards! they add so much to the whole presentation with a finished and polished look.
