I was thinking of getting some plywood to cover for my cake boards. How thick of a board do you usually buy? I was looking for the foam core boards, but have no idea where to find them, or I just don't know what I am looking for. Can someone explain it too me or maybe show me a picture? Is is styrofoam? Do you cover it with contact paper? I do have sugar shacks dvd's and I think this is what she uses between layers. But I can not remember seeing if it is covered before the cake is put on. I would assume that it should be. But at this point I feel I don't know anything. I have forgot the basics. icon_redface.gificon_eek.gificon_redface.gif

I use them all, I have a 1/2 in plyboard that my husband cut for me to use with my big cakes, I like the sturdyness. I also use the foam core for the stacked cakes,to use between layers. Got that from sugarshacks video too. But they don't need to be covered. You can buy it from Hobby Lobby, Michaels, JoAnns.
