I use tissue paper and clear cellophane over it, its cheap and with the variety of tissue colors and patterns I can go many different ways. I also often use the plastic tablecloths from the dollar store for covering larger boards. Both of these are easy to wipe clean which for sloppy me is very important !!!
Probably a dumb question, but is "clear cellophane" the same thing as plastic wrap (saran wrap)? If so, how do you get it flat and smooth?
I found some great looking gift bags at the dollar store last week. They were super big with holographic designs on them. I was able to get a 10" board, top & bottom, out of each side.
Even better, they're really thick, with a plastic kind of coating on them, so they don't even need to be covered with plastic, though of course you would want to if you wanted them back.
I use the wrapping paper and clear contact paper-or tissue paper and clear contact paper-depends on the occasion. I have alot of the foil too but I switch back and forth.
Do you really have to cover cake boards all fancy? I usually just put two layers of aluminum foil on my board... is that okay?
Clear Cellophane is the stuff that is used to cover gift baskets, you may call it something different there. It is not saran wrap.
Hope this clears it up for you 'Cakesasyoulikeit'
Thanks, Raemarie, that makes more sense. I haven't ever seen that sold though (although admittedly never speicfically looked). Do you get it at a craft store??
I don't know about where you are Angela, but I just pick it up at the local dollar store here in Calgary, You can also get it at Floral shops, not sure about craft stores as I never looked for it there.
