On the Ultimate Cake Off, they are always trimming, shaping, cakes. Can someone tell me what kind of board is between the cakes? I thought maybe styrafoam, but seems like cutting that would end up with shavings in the cake. Thanks
Usually those boards are just regular cardboard rounds. In some cases, when extra support is needed, the cardboards are doubled up.
They look thicker than the regular cardboard rounds. And does the cardboard get in the cake then when shaping?
You can usually get any cardboard shards off of the sculpted cake pretty easily just by brushing them away, and in the end, it's a "natural" fiber.
You can use foam core, but it's a lot harder to cut and of course, those scraps are styrofoam...............
OK Thanks Rae!!
