How Do I find ACRYLIC GANACHE BOARDS in the US for purchase? Help needed.

post #1 of 15
Thread Starter 

The impressive tutorials on using the 'acrylic ganache boards' with polished sides to make perfectly smooth level ganache cakes are tempting to try........however the boards are not available for sale in the US.

 

is there anyone out there who knows someone who sells them? or would sell & ship them here?

Of course we all have our limits, but how can you possibly find your boundaries unless you explore as far and as wide as you possibly can? I would rather fail in an attempt at something new and uncharted than safely succeed in a repeat of something

I've looked for some here but I couldn't find any.  I found someone who will cut acrylic to the dimensions I give but I've yet to do that because he's very expensive. I would love to be able to order some online!

This may be a good opportunity for a business to import or make these for sale in the US.

 

We get JEM, PME, Carmas Massa fondant   etc.   imported.

Check out your local glass and acrylic shops, I get acrylic circles cut for next to nothing when I'm building 3D support systems.

When you have them cut, what size do you use?  Example:  for a 6 inch cake do you have it cut to 6 1/4 or 6 1/2" ?

I saw them at Michael's craft store the other day. I'm pretty sure they just had 8 and 9 inch rounds.

Yes. Mitch Turner of Little Venice in the UK makes them. I think the 8, 10 and 12 inch sizes are sold in the US at Michael's, Kmart and other stores.

I guess you would have to trim your cakes if they're not at least a quarter inch or half an inch smaller than the boards.

I get them about 1/4" bigger than the tier size.

My cakes coming out of 8-inch pans are slightly less that 8 inches, so I use 8-inch circles.

There. Their. They're not the same.

 

I hope I die before "your" becomes the official contraction of "you are."

Thank You Shanter:  You are a peach. The Delvies Plastic website like exactly what is used in the tutorials.
