Browsing the fabric department at walmart I came across these cloth swatches for $1-they had all different colors and patterns. I think it's be a great idea to use for a cake board since it's the perfect size. I bought a black and a brown to use with a couple practice cakes I was working on. Thought I'd share icon_smile.gif

added: trying to attach picture of the swatch information but cake central not cooperating...I'll keep trying

So you cover your cake board with the fabric like you would fondant or foil, correct? Does your cake stick to the fabric?

WOW thanks for the info, I'll have to check that out.

peaseofcake, I would put a cake board under the cake so it doesn't touch the fabric.

I cover my boards with the plastic tablecloths you find at the dollar store. They come in many different colors. You can get them at the party store as well, just more expensive.

I cover with fabric first, then with the clear vinyl that walmart sells on a roll for 97 cents. It works great to match the cake with a fabric, and then the vinyl keeps the fabric from touching the cake.
