Hi all, just wondered if anyone had any ideas on how to cover a cake board without using fondant or buttercream. Has anyone ever tried wrapping paper or something like that? The board is really big so I wanted to avoid using all that fondant, but not sure what else to do. Any thoughts?
Depending on the size of the board, I have used wrapping paper or scrapbooking paper. I then cover it with plastic wrap or press and seal wrap to keep the paper free from staining. To finish it, I attach a ribbon to the board.
Here are a few examples.
I use plastic tablecloths from the $ store but then I put the cake on a board since the tablecloth is not food safe. I also attach a ribbon to edge of the board.
I use wrapping paper and food safe cellophane over it. I've put them on cake boards before, but they have slid around unless I adhered the board or used non-slip rubber mats under it.
You can also use fabric covered with clear plastic wrap or cellophane or clear contac paper.
I often use scrapbook paper....there are milions of designs and colors.....and then cover with clear contact.
