Wondering what everyone uses for their cake boards or bases? I've been using cardboard rounds but they aren't strong enough. Any help is much appreciated! Thank you!
I have been using boards with piece of wax paper on top and covered with foil papers. I bake mostly for friends and I get those boards back and remove the foils and reuse the boards. I have my husband find some boards at the hardware store and he cuts mine out. However in Nebraska there is a craft store MANGELSENS that sell them also. check online or local for these. . Good luck
i use foam and i cover it with foil
I cut my own boards from 3/16" foamcore using a hot knife (electrified X-acto).
I don't cover them with anything because I don't want bits of foil, saran, or parchment to come up with the cake after cutting, so I melt some edible soy wax and wipe it on the surface (which I've sanitized using grain alcohol or vanilla extract). Works great--very sturdy.
The pretty board, the one you see when the cake is all finished? Or the board beneath each tier? Foam core beneath each tier, and a premade drum from CK Products. Sometimes I cut my own drums from 1/2" foam core too...just depends.
