Cake Boards when stacking a cake

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
When stacking a cake, what type of cake boards do you use? For example, do you use the show and serve one's that are grease resistant or do you use plain cardboard?
Thanks!

Plain cardboard. Suppliers sell the grease-proof ones mainly for cheesecakes.

Do you cover the board withthe foil (wilton kind) that is put between tiers??

Covering interior boards isn't necessary. You can use a piece of waxed paper under the cardboards, if you'd like to prevent the icing from sticking to the bottom of the boards.

Ditto CWR41. These cardboards are made for the intended use. I dont' cover them and I use cardboard circle.

CWR41 this might be a really dumb question but how do attach the waxed paper to the cardboards? For example if I wanted to place my bottom tier on top of a cake board that I covered in wrapping paper ( I know I am not supposed to place a cake on top of wrapping paper due to chemicals in the paper) and wanted wax paper to be between the wrapping paper and cake, would I just use buttercream to keep it attached to the cake board and the paper so that the cake wouldn't slide? Hope that made sense???? Contact paper is expensive and wrapping paper is so much cheaper! Thanks!

Yes, attach with BC. However, if placing your cake on a (fancy covered)baseboard that shows, it isn't necessary to use waxed paper because your cake would already be on its own board so that you can pick it up.

i like using cardboard rounds or cut foamcore. i cover them with Glad Press 'N Seal just cuz i don't like the way cardboard looks after it's absorbed some grease.
