Just wondering if any body has a suggestion to cover a cake board. I'm doing an ivory wedding cake and don't want a silver board. I usually use fondant but I'm looking for other suggestions. I've looked for an ivory foil roll but no luck. I thought about a nice paper or something but I'm afraid that it will rip and get stuck in the cake when it gets cut!!! HELP!!

I use fondant. I am not a big fan of colored foil.

If I use paper to cover my board I then cover the paper in the clear cellophane wrap that you can buy on the roll. Depending on style of wedding maybe the board could be wrapped in a similar shade of their wedding colors.

I am all about a fondant board. It doesn't have to be plain or just rolled with an impression mat/rolling pin. More and more I am seeing where the boards are now an extension of the cake and I think its great. Paint it...polka dot it, fluff it...bring on the fondant!!!

Just wondering if rice paper wouldn't be an option. You can get some really nice effect with rice paper and its edible.

Here's a video tutorial on how to cover a cake board with fabric. It will work with probably any fabric and any cake board size and shape. Also shows how to protect the fabric while working with your cake, using a sheet of clear cellophane. After your cake is finished, you can simply cut the cellophane around the edge of the cake using a sharp blade and remove it leaving a nice clean fabric board while the cake still sits on the cellophane.

Hope this helps someone :)

AIf you decide to use paper make sure your cake is on a thin cake board so the paper won't get stuck on the cake.
