I have a piece of smooth 1/4" board I'm using as my cake board. I need to cover it in fondant - should I prep the board any special way before I put the fondant on it or can I lay the fondant right on it?

the fondant needs something to stick to -- i'd use water or piping gel. good luck!

I second that - piping gel.

When I use a wooden board, I tend to cover it in cake board foil or contact paper. It makes an easier clean up and the board can be returned tob e used again.

I do this so that any imperfections in the wood wont show through in the fondant

As far as prepping the board after it has been covered in contact or foil... I just lightly brush it with water and the fondant sticks right onl.

Good luck
