I was trying to dumb down my answer too.  Haha.     OH I miss it too.   Its been years!   I still wonder where all my free time went, and everyone else`s.   I can barely scrounge up a third player for Settlers.

The way I see it, is no, the average person doesn't notice it. But put identical cakes, but one with finished board and one without, next to each other and take a poll on which one looks nicer....well, which one will win?

It is so funny that so many of you use the shoe analogy. I use the silver “boring, ugly, etc” board because I am not at the level of those that can manage to get the fondant on the board, not mess it up then put the cake on and still not mess it up. I think it would be a disaster for me to try. I managed it on one cake but the added stress, expense and time are just way more than what I think it is worth. Again, I am not a professional like most of you here so it takes me a long time to do something like that.   The reason the analogy is so funny to me is… I own about 4 pair of shoes… I am not a big shoe person, I am a professional in my day job and wear a suit and skirts etc.. but a good pair of black, blue and beige shoes is all I ever felt was necessary.. you would probably wrinkle your noses at me for that too lolol

But you make such beautiful gumpaste shoes...would that be considered ironic?

I believe it would!! I had to go on the internet to find a picture of a shoe to copy for those too... so out of my element. :)

Eh, I live in flip flops. Covering a board in fondant has got to be the easiest thing ever. And uses very very little fondant, especially if you cut out the part that will be covered by your cake. :D Freeze left over scraps to use, then it's free, pretty much. Not really addressing you, but anyone who thinks it's difficult to do or expensive.

If you cover the board a couple of days before you put your cake on it, you won't damage the fondant. Not that I am ever organised enough to do that! I usually make a long strip of fondant, cut one edge straight with a pizza cutter, roll it up like a bandage, and unroll on the dampened cake board starting and ending at the back. Cut through the overlaps to get a nice cut at the back. Smooth with a smoother, xacto around the edge to get rid of the excess. And don't forget ribbon around the edge, it can be glued on with pritt stick or similar.
