I wondered if my 5mm foam poster board would be suitable to use as a cake board or do you need to use a special type of card?
I'm making an irregular shaped cake and can't find a cardboard cake board i could use between the tiers, whereas the foam board is real easy to cut to shape.
Hope that makes sense?
I use foam boards all the time. Not sure what size, but it's the thinnest one that Michaels carries.
Fantastic, do you wrap your boards in anything or does the cake go straight on it?
I wrap them in press n seal if they are going on top of another cake. If it's for the bottom base, I wrap in foil.
I wipe mine with vodka then use food safe shrink wrap and adhere with a heat gun.
I use foamboard for all of my cakeboards. I wipe it down with vanilla extract (high alcohol content) and then use melted soy wax to seal it.
I never wrap my boards with anything because I don't want bits of it to get into the cake as it's being cut.
