I am making a 6", 9" and 12" tiered cake. I went to get cardboard rounds and they only had 6", 10" and 12". Can I use a 10" round for a 9" cake? Or, should I go to another store and try to find the 9" rounds????

Just cut the 10" round down to size. I guarantee it will be easier than trying to find a 9" round.

I often have the wrong size boards, since I have to buy the packs of 5 or 6. I just trace the bottom of the cake pan, then cut a scant 1/4 " inside that line. Scissors work fine.

Yep...I agree..do they even make a 9" round? icon_lol.gif

I do the same as Icubed and cut mine with 1/4 " over so that the fondant or icing has a "shelf" to sit on. I cut my own boards quite often.

Yep, quite a few suppliers have 9" round. Sometimes they only have grease-proof 9" in stock because they are used mainly for cheesecakes. (Try the Webstaurant Store, Cake Deco, & Bake Deco.)

I rarely use 9", but I somehow ended up with two free cases of them! They were given to me, I guess because they weren't yet punched completely from the rectangular boards. (3 per board, which filled two cases once they were removed from the excess.)
