I have started selling individual cakes to a local restaurant. They are 3" in diameter & 2" high. They are decorated for the season/holiday & are packaged in clear, plastic hinged containers.

I would like an easier "cakeboard" to put them on. Right now I am cutting out a shape that fits in the botttom of the hinged container & allows a bit of room around the cake for the border--out of the cardboard sheets that wilton sells for sheet cake cakeboards. These are more heavy duty than I need. A square shape does not allow enough room around the cake for the border-so I think I am stuck cutting by hand. I have used sissors and x-acto knives, but both are a bit tedious.

Any ideas for something that would be easier to cut-but is food safe, looks presentable & doesn't have to be covered with foil, etc????

There are sites that sell most any size cake boards. Sugarcraft carries 4" diameter boards. They come in different shapes too. If that's not the right size, you can special order the size you need.

Why don't you make a cookie to use as a "cakeboard"? I've seen people using those Digestive cookies for tiny little cakes. Way cheaper, and people can eat them too!
