Cake slid off the board - Page 2

post #16 of 34
I use a square of thin carpet skid pad. It's thin, rubber and that cake's goin' nowhere. I buy it in rolls for pennies and cut off squares as I need them. (as a side benefit, it also makes the best jar opener! Keep a square in your top drawer)

Mine too, I have never glued a cake to a board. I usually cover my board with RI or fondant though. I dont use the shiny slick paper, maybe that could have contributed to the problem? Just a thought.

I have used the carpet non-skid pad, hadn't heard of gluing the board until today....

What if your board is covered in fondant? Will BC or RI work still?

I'm a buttercream person too<G> and yes, it sticks the cake board to a fondant covered drum too. I've never even thought to use tape or glue but I guess that is something to consider?

i've only ever stuck my cake directly to the cake board using BC. no problems there, my cakes have never moved even after transporting 100miles. next time i will try one of the other methods, might save me some cake boards! icon_biggrin.gif

If I'm traveling with the bottom cake directly on the main decorative board I'll usually run a few swirls of hot glue and set the cake on it's cake circle on there............if I'm delivering my tiers separately I generally will just set down the decorative board and then put a square of shelf liner down, then the bottom cake and continue stacking that way.

I put the bottom cake directly on the cake drum with a smear of bc. Why would you use a cardboard?

As asked by Leah_s- I was wondering too. Seems like an extra expense, I'm wondering the benefit?[/quote]

I have always just used BC, but the piping gel is a great idea too.

As for the extra cardboard, when I cover a cake with fondant I use a cakeboard under that cake that is the same size as the covered cake. Then move the cake to a larger covered board (usually covered with fondant or paper) so then you have 2 boards.

If I am just covering with BC then I will put the cake directly onto my larger board and only use one cake board.

Call it shelf liner or carpet non-skid mat, I love that stuff!
I use it with every cake, no matter how large or small.

Pick up a roll at your local Walmart or other discount store - very cheap, easy to cut to size and offers great "traction".

Best of luck!
