I am looking for something that I can cover cardboard because I am making my own cake boards and I have heard that contact paper is a no no. So what about parchment paper glued on the board its self?

Thanks guys

I think parchment paper will absorb grease. If you use freezer paper, shiny side out, that is a cheap and easy covering. I also like to use wrapping paper, and then a layer of clear contact paper. Yes, it's true contact paper shouldn't touch the cake, but I set the cake on its own cake board on top of the contact paper.

You can purchase rolls of food grade embossed foil, in a variety of colors. They're very attractive and can also be used for covering boards to use for dessert and cookie trays.

I use to use parchment paper all the time it worked great but I had trouble with tape sticking to it but what I do now is use plastic tablecloth I buy them on sale (sometimes .99) and I like to use different colors (goes with cake theme) and its plastic if I accidently get frosting on it I wipe it with a damp cloth I always have them on hand .
