I need to cover a cake board with fondant but it needs to look sort of like a checker board. It has different colored squares on it. Does anyone know the best way to do this?? I have only covered a cake board with a solid color before, never different colors.

You probably just need to cut the individual squares and stick them on, unless you want to try painting them.

Cover the board with one color and add the second color in squares.

This is what the board will look like....

I cover the whole board in white and then add the squares individually, right??

If you are doing that many colors I wouldn't bother covering the board in white first. Just attach your squares individually using piping gel, that stuff sticks well.

I would do individual squares glued to the board to get that look.

I did something similar to what you are describing, and I embossed and cut each square individually and applied them to my board with a little water.
