I need to cover a plywood board with fondant. What should I put between the wood and the fondant. My DH just made the board for me and I don't want to mess it up too bad, piping gel etc.

PS I'm out of fanci foil wrap. Sometimes I use freezer paper, plastic side out, but I'm afraid it won't stick.

I think I would moisten the back of the fondant with water and apply it. If you moisten the board I mean that's the way you would usually do it, wet the surface some but it just seems a little futile because the plywood is so absorbant. I'm sure it would work either way. Water.

I'd cover it with clear Contac(t) paper, spray it lightly with water, and put the fondant on it.

I wrap mine with contact paper THEN with a food safe paper (cake paper) THEN I cover with fondant..

That way the board AND the edibles are protected... I have had kids pick at the boards .. so you might wanna expect stuff like that
