I just tried my first coordinating theme board by using fondant. A football field for a football helmet cake. It was very easy.

I have only used fondant. Never tried paper or contact paper. I wonder if some of the colored & pattern boards are the pre-made sugar sheets that come with patterns.

I use wrapping paper or scrapbook paper that coordinates with my cake. I then cover that with contact paper. I have a cake board under my cake so I don't have to worry about the contact paper. If you don't cover the paper with contact paper the grease from the bc will be absorbed by the paper.

"I use wrapping paper or scrapbook paper that coordinates with my cake. I then cover that with contact paper. "

What a great idea!

I just posted a picture of a Mini Mouse cake that is covered in scrapbook paper. Sometimes I use fondant, the sweet 16 cake is covered in black fondant and I cut out the stars and replaced them with hot pink ones to match.

The person that stated about the silver boards. I agree.. I do not like them at all unless the cake has silver but even then I cover them.

What do you guys mean when you say you cover them with contact paper? I would like to try this! I would love to use more gift wrap or scrapbook paper for my board but don't know how to stop the grease from ruining my board. I just did a cake and had this problem! Thanks!

It's a clear adhesive paper that comes in roles that you peel off a paper backing. I find mine in th aisle with the drawer lining paper at Walmart. Cover your board with wrapping or scrapbooking paper you like then cover it with contact paper. This will keep the wrapping paper from becoming greasy. Just make sure that you put a cake circle under your cake to keep it from coming in contact with the contact paper since I've been told that it's not food safe.
