Cake Boards? opinions? discuss :) - Page 3

post #31 of 53

I do have to say, the cake board never even occurred to me before I came on CC. I just thought if I put a cake on a pretty silver board - see my avatar! - then it would look great. Now I wish I could re-take the photo on a good board! I guess it's just a learning curve though, and I love all the tips I learn here that puts me that tiny bit closer to being a professional caker (which is my dream) rather than  just a hobby baker.

I like to finish my cakes by providing a neat covered board...ie covered either with fondant, or contact-covered paper (not in contact with the cake, which sits on a cardboard on top of the baseboard. However, sometimes I STILL get asked to present the cake on a silver or gold cake-foil covered base board. It's not my favourite finish, but I'm happy to comply with my clients' wishes.

Life's too short to make cake pops.

found youtube video of how to put fondant on cakeboard with ribbon.  I needed a visual guide to make sense of it.

Good visual - but I would use less than 1/4 of the fondant she used for the board..... her's was REALLY thick

 

Same for the cake covering...... that is some THICK fondant there!

This thread reminded me of this cake. I always wondered who would spend a zillion dollars on a cake and serve it next to corn dogs and cheese sticks. Well, I guess you can tell from what the dragon has got in his claw... That's got to be  cake by Mike McCrary who for reasons of his own does not decorate the boards.

Is that some type of gambling dice?

Is he holding the dice from a Dungeons and Dragons game? The  ones with the way too many sides? Cool cake!

Around here, you never see a fondant covered board.  I'd never seen or heard of such a thing until I came on here.  A silver, white or gold cake drum is the norm.  It's all I ever use, unlessit's a simple birthday cake and then I'll cover a cardboard with FanciFoil.  A fancy board doens't add enough impact for me to take the time to do it.

No, but that would be sweet!   Haha!  I`ll take the corn dogs while we are at it- I can`t remember the last time I had one of those.



I might as well come out of the TARDIS, I`m a total geek.   :lol:

You gave yourself away by that specific answer.  :D I'm a geek at heart, too. I play WoW , well not lately, but my acct is still active. I don't know anyone in RL who plays anymore and it's so much more fun to play that way. I miss the LAN parties, battlegrounds and even getting ganked.

Before I went on a wedding cake course I had no idea about the importance of a covered board. I was taught that a covered board is how professionally decorated cakes should be presented so I always cover mine. It can really add to the overall look and design of the cake most of the time.
