AWhere can I buy the acrylic disks used in the upsidedown ganache method?
delvies plastics .com clear plexiglass sheets
AI use two circles of foam core glued together and cling wrap stretched over- a bit of prit stick helps the cling wrap stick. it's far cheaper than those acrylic discs.
You can buy a good adjustable circle cutter too on ebay with an extension bar allowing you to cut huge circles.
Here's someone on FB who uses them and she lists 2 sources:

I have found them at www.cakethings.com I ordered some that are .25 inches larger than my cakes and some that are .5 inches larger if I need more icing. so far I have only done using buttercream have not tried Ganache yet but I love the upside down method and the acrylics! so nice! and so easy! I still need more practice but I love the method!
I also ordered two of each size from from www.cakethings.com (4 inches to 10 inches--1/8-inch thick). I love them. I've used both ganache and buttercream. Mine are 1/4-inch larger and I find this perfect. Delivery was quick and disks were inexpensive compared to our sites.
Do you have kids? Or know a teacher who works in/near a school DT department? I bought a piece of acrylic sheet and gave it to a friend who works at a school who used their special cutter to cut it...fab result and cost a few pounds (and a beer the next time we met) ;-)
