I typically buy Wilton's paper at Michaels or AC Moore to cover my cake boards. I'm just curious what everyone else uses that doesn't allow the oil from the icing to stain the paper. Can you share the website/link of where you purchase your paper? Thanks!!! icon_biggrin.gif

I cover with wrapping paper to match my grandkids theme and then cover with food safe clear wrap. icon_smile.gif

Ditto. I've also used fabric. Most of the time I use freezer paper (shiny side up) it's inexpensive, food safe and very durable.

Sometimes fondant, sometimes wrapping paper (I always put my cakes on a cardboard round first so it the cake doesn't sit on the paper). I often use foamboard and don't cover it at all since I can get them in different colors. I usually put down that self stick wrap (not Saran, I think Glad makes it) to protect the board from getting greasy while I still work on the cake. Then I use my exacto knife and gently cut it away and I have a nice clean board.

I forgot to mention that I always do this as well

I buy tons of colors of florist foil from the bakery supply, and then wrap the boards...put double sided carpet tape...then stick my cake (on its own cardboard) on the base.
