Cake slid off the board

post #1 of 34
Thread Starter 
Hello,

Do you "glue" your cake circles to your cake boards? I have never had a problem, but this weekend I was driving with a cake. My driver accelerated quickly and my cake flew right off the board. I put the cake on a cardboard round and then on my cake board. Should I be putting some kind of glue on the cardboard round...would I use a royal icing type glue, I'd think couldn't use real glue.

Help!!

Yes. I use hot glue to attach my cake circle to the cake board.

you could use real glue, it is not coming in contact with cake, it is board to circle

I use several pieces of duct tape folded over so sticky side is out. Never had a problem - in fact when I pull the cake circle off of my cake board be it my wooden one covered with a decorative paper or several cardboard circles glued together and covered, it is very difficult to pull apart.

I use corn syrup... CCer Mike suggested it, and it works great.

I use double-sided carpet tape. Works like a dream! icon_biggrin.gif

For smallish cakes, I use sticky dots like you find in the scrapbooking aisle at the craft store. For huge cakes, I use double sided carpet tape.

My cakes go right on the cake board.

The best edible glue between boards for me is clear piping gel, it is sticky and after it sits for a few hours it holds boards together like concreate. I also like to use it when I stack fondant cakes...after I put in the supports on the bottom tier I smear some piping gel on that area, then place the next tier on. Love it. Hope that helps. icon_smile.gif

I use that grippy shelf paper stuff between cake boards and cake stands, etc.. I also use this to lay down in my trunk or in the back of my husband's crew cab truck when the seat is laid down to keep the cake from sliding in the vehicle. It works miracles no matter what the traffic. Matter of fact I made a carousel cake a couple of weeks ago that had trim that extended below the bottom of the cake board I transported it on an inverted pyrex bowl with some of this grippy stuff between the bowl and the cake board and it never moved a 1/4 of an inch. I love it. I buy it by the roll and just cut a square to fit wherever I need it.

I cover the boards in foil, then put a smear of BC under the cake to join the two together.

Really? I have never glued a cake to a board. Maybe mine are just super heavy.
