ALso, how do you shape the plywood into shapes when store only does round or square for you?
AND do you cover cake board with anything before applying fondant on it or just fondant straight on?
I just make sure I have cleaned the wood and then mist with water before I cover with fondant. The fondant becomes the food safe barrier and I instruct my customers that it is not meant to be peeled off and eaten (in case there are kids around who would actually think of doing that lol)
I use a jigsaw to cut my boards (or a circular saw if its square) I do not have them cut at home depot. I have some woodworking and furniture making experience so we have a lot of tools.
