Do icing on your board instead of paper. Do royal or just your buttercream or fondant then you can make the details fit with the cake always loved that look! HTH

Instead of using wrapping paper on my cake boards, I cover the top of them (if I'm using 12" or smaller) with scrapbooking paper, then I place contact paper over that. Scrapbooking papers come in a million different designs, and they are also very colorful. They are also inexpensive ($0.50 a sheet). I then put ribbon around the side of the cakeboard as a finishing touch. It's worked for me every time. Also, scrapbook paper is usually a little thicker than some wrapping papers, so I don't have to worry about it possibly tearing on me.

Oh My! so many ideas, so little time. I have 3 cakes coming up and I can't wait to try all of these ideas! I'm so tired of looking at the foil! Does any one else get as bored with the same old cakes as I do?

Yep. It's with the other shelf liners and such. I love this idea, and I use it all the time, my only complaint is that I can never get the contact paper to lay perfectly smooth on the wrapping paper. There always seem to be creases and folds. I try to get these in the middle so that the cake will cover them up, but it never seems to work that way. Sometimes I'm such a perfectionist that these little creases really bug me. If anyone has any tips for this, I'm all ears. icon_smile.gif[/quote]

I use wrapping paper all the time, I buy it from the Dollar Tree store and I use contact paper to cover it, and of course I put the cake on a cake circle and some buttercream to cement it. I too had a problem with creases and bubbles, my husband suggested I use a Squeegee and got me one. And it works great! Before I fold the contact paper under the cake circle I start by wiping with the squeegee from the center out.

I hope this helps.

I use wrapping paper and clear contact paper all the time.  I find the clear contact paper at my local Dollar Tree all the time.  (Glendale, AZ)
And I use a credit card to get the air bubbles and creases out of the contact paper.icon_smile.gif
