Make Your Own Cake Boards!


Materials: Heavy Duty cardboard box, single sheet of foam core board (Wal-Mart), cake board (the size you need), exacto knife, glue gun, ribbon, scissors and tape.


 
Use cake board as your pattern, trace over foam core board.
 

 



Carefully cut out, don't try and go all the way through the first time just get it going and then go over the cut again to complete.
 
 

 

Use the foam core board you just cut and trace over the cardboard box. This can be double or single layered. Here I cut through two layers of cardboard because I'll need four since it's a heavy cake. This will hold one, 6, 8 and 10 inch fondant covered cake.
 
I placed the two cardboards in between, foam core on the bottom and cake board on top. The foam core board supports REALLY well.
 
 

 

 

Cover with cake foil.
 

 
 Then use glue gun to adorn with ribbon color of your choice.
 









 

The Artists

I wasn't given an particular design for this cake. All I knew was that she loved art so I just went for it :-). Decorations are all edible.
 
 
 

We Love Our Teachers!

Made these rainbow cakes to say thank you to all the wonderful educators at my daughters middle school. She's headed to High School! I can't believe it!
We are still blessed with some of the greatest and most caring Teachers in the world....they're still out there!
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
My daughter flipped when she saw these! Doesn't take much to amuse a kid I guess :-).
