what do you use to cover your cardboard to put your cake on? I always use Aluminum foil, but was wondering, what else could I use? Grease free ...thanks!

You can use fondant to cover a board and really tie it into your cake design. I just did a lego cake and made the board look like the big green pieces that we used to build on (it's in my photos)

Or, you can use freezer paper to cover the board (shiny side out). I did that for my world cup cake. The freezer paper is a really inexpensive way to finish off the board.

I can't take credit for it, someone else on here suggested it in a previous thread. (Sorry I can't remember who)

You can use certain wrapping papers in a pinch. Of course, Wilton sells the rolls of colored papers that is grease free.

I like to cover the board with fondant. I try to think of different things to do with the fondant to make it part of the display.
