Do you put your cake directly on cardboard cakeboards? I usually wrap the cakeboard in saran wrap but would rather not if I don't have to.

You don't have to... cake circles are made for cake.

I tend to do a lot of sheet cakes, but I never put the cake directly on the cakeboard. I cover with either regular aluminum foil or the food safe foil available from Wilton.

if someone gives me either colored foils or wrapping paper -which are not food safe- for the board and insists I use them, I use a cake wax paper "doily" (you know the ones that the supermarket bakeries use) between it and the cake. I also use it between the cake and those nice pre-made thick cake boards. I secure the doily to the board using double sided tape.

Because who knows where those cake boards have been... lol

I've seen them at the baking store, on the floor...yes, pretty yucky.

After that, I started buying the ones I could wash: Tuff. Or, the ones that come wrapped in plastic, a dozen or so, like Wilton's. Just can't shake the image of those boards all dusty on the floor.

I buy them in cases from the supplier.They are waxed on one side.

I only use the gold scalloped boards. They're coated and have an upscale appearance. Novacart makes them, so do a couple other companies.

Thanks for all your reponses but what about between tiers?

I was talking about all cakes... between tiers, or on base boards. Each cake should be on its own board.
