Hi all

You can wrap it in fanci foil or leave it unwrapped. I wrap mine in fanci foil but i have also done without. Never wrap with parchment(learned that the really hard way!!!!!)paper. Hope this helps.

Hi Auryn,
I don't wrap my boards that I put between layers, I use foamcore board cut to fit the upper cake and I wipe it with everclear. I like to use foam board because the edges are white not brown like cardboard edges. I place the board on the lower cake to make a slight imprint to get the area that I put my dowel rods and then if I am using buttercream I sprinkle a thin layer of coconut on to keep the board from sticking to the icing when I lift off the upper tier. I don't use coconut if the cake is covered in fondant. I also let the customer know that I use coconut between layers. Most of the time they are fine with it, occasionally I have them request that I use something else then I just use a light layer of powdwerd sugar on the crusted buttercream.
I hope this helps you in some small way, you will get lots of different opinions, there is really no right or wrong way, it's what you become comfortable with that helps you make a successful cake.
Have fun this weekend! thumbs_up.gif
