Cake Boards or Stands

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
I am looking for ideas on what to get or make as cake boards. I use the words cake boards loosely. Pretty much I am looking for a nice plate/board etc. To serve my final product on.

Have any of you made your own? If so, what did you use to make them and what do you cover them with and how do you keep them clean?

My first though was plywood and cover with Stainless Steel (i like the looks of it) but It would be hard to cover the whole board with metal so I would have wood showing underneath. Would this look bad?

Also what Sizes do you have that covers most cakes? Currently I have 10x10 sq
a set of heart
a set of petal
a set of hex

Mostly I use the hex set b/c they're my personal favorite.

Hopefully all of these questions make sense. I appreciate your help.

My DH makes my cake boards out of ply wood.
Covering them is a personal preference. You can cover in fondant, material, foil and just about anything. But take into account that some things will stain what you cover. If your after the stainless look have a look at laminates, there are so many you should find something.

I will be doing plywood boards, painting them white, and then covering them with contact paper. I have seen this done and they look wonderful!
