Once while delivering a Groom’s cake, my cake board buckled and the cake cracked. Since then, I’ve created my own sturdy reusable cake board.
Here is how to make your own sturdy and reusable cake board. I recommend using ¾ inch plywood. The cake board should be at least 2 inches wider than the cake on all sides. Sand off any really rough edges. Cover with fancy foil in any color that you choose. I like to use gold or silver because those colors go with most things. On top of the fancy foil, cover the entire board with clear shelf paper. The board can be cleaned with a damp cloth and reused for many cakes.
