How Do You Decorate Your Cake Board? - Page 2

post #16 of 22
Hi I'm from the uk and I've just been to a cake show and bough 'the mat'. You roll your fondant between two sheets and it makes covering cakes and boards soooo much easier! I'm a beginner and its the best bit of equipment I've bought. Hope this helps xxx

OMG I love mine!! It is so helpful BUT I've found that MMF and Duffs fondant stick terribly and form air pockets. I had an emergency white fondant outage so I sent my hubs to Michaels and thought Duffs would be better than Wilton's and lets just say he had to go back!! I've found that Fondx, Satin Ice, and Fondarific work the best! I even got my 9 year old daughter the mini so she gets to help so much more often now!!

I love my 'Mat' too.

 

Lynne I saw on another thread where a lady was using a large picture frame.  I'm not sure if it was glass or acrylic but she change the look for different cakes by changing the pattern of the paper that she placed under the glass.  I keep meaning to look when I am up the street for something to try like this but I'm a scatterbrain.

I bet using laminated cotton over the boards would look pretty awesome. Especially a Amy Butler pattern!

It sounds daft but i have never thought of using this "contact paper" In the uk my mum says its called "Fabulon" although i would say adhesive film ;-) thanks for the tip    ;-)

It's sticky back plastic - but with a pattern on it instead of being clear.
