Can I cover a cakeboard in duct tape or is that a food safety no-no?
I am not sure of the reason, but in Louisiana the helth department will make you remove any silver duct tape from your business. Again, I am not sure why. You can not even have it to pack boxes with.
I would imagine duck tape not to be very food safe as it is extreamly sticky so would attract alsorts of dust and fluff. I would not be certain on that just my own thoughts.
No, duct tape isn't food safe.
I figured as much but thought I would see what others thought. I would like to cover a cakeboard in black and white stripes somehow (without using fondant) and thought duct tape might be a good solution.
have you smelled the fumes it gives off.
some bad ju-ju there!
Could you find some striped wrapping paper. I have a black and white polka dot paper that I love to use. I cover it with contact paper, then set a cake board on it.
I have also used fabric on cake boards. Then cover with contact paper. The contact paper is not food safe either, so I always have cake on board cut to just a little bigger than cooked cake, enough for the icing to cover, so it isn't seen.
I use fabric or wrapping paper covered with food-safe clear plastic. It comes on a big roll. I usually find it at Michaels or Hobby Lobby in the regular gift wrapping paper section.
How about black and white paper made for the checker board and cover with clear contact paper
Thanks for the suggestions guys! I was hoping not to have to buy something else. Also, I have read on here that contact paper IS food safe and I have read that it ISN'T food safe. Does anyone have a definitive answer?
I read an article on cc yesterday that someone contacted the contact paper company and CLEAR contact paper is food safe since it has no dye or ink (no lead) Good Luck !!!
Why not cover your board with duct tape, then cover that with clear Contact paper?
I agree with Doug i dont think the fumes would be a great addition to the cake!!
