How & what do I use as feet on cake boards so that it's easier for me to move and carry the cake?

Is there a tutorial? Or if anyone can help that would be great!

Thanks so much!

I'm not sure what you mean by footed -- but I always hot glue a smaller cake board underneath the larger cake board to act as a riser making it easier for your fingers to slip under to pick up the cake. Is that what you're referring to?

How about those little adhesive silicone or rubber bump things you can buy on a sheet. Like what you might use on the back of a picture frame to keep from tilting or scratching the wall or under something so it doesn't scratch the furniture. I have no idea what they are called though so hope you can figure out what I am referring to. I think they would raise it a quarter inch or so.

i use the little rubber things that go on back of picture frames.etc.. my friend told me about them. works great. some people cut little squares of styrofoam. and glue them on. i have used the rings that i take off the single plate system. and glue these on... lots of things you can use for this .. hth

I get my ribbon on the $.99 rolls at Joann's for the edge of my board, then use the spool that the ribbon comes on cut in half and covered in paper hot glued for the "feet"

I use water bottle caps. Since at home we buy those by the box, I remove the caps and then hot glue them to the bottom of my boards. The bottles I recycle.
