Carboard Circles for Cakes

Si quieres leer esta entrada en español clic aquí.

These circles are made of corrugated cardboard with the same shape of the cake. If you are going to cover the cake with fondant or need cardboard as a divider between levels of a tiered cake, you’ll need to cut the same size of the baking pan you made the cake in. If the
cake is going to be frosted with any type of icing and will have borders, then a 1 to 1 ½ inch allowance is needed all around.

The following pictures will give you an idea of how to do them yourselves. I prefer to make my cardboards two or three layers thick to give it more support and to allow me to use a decorative ribbon all around the edge. They can be covered with aluminum. Since I make many cakes for neighbors, I have made a few of ½ inch thick plywood in the sizes I most commonly use. It could also be covered with colorful decorative contact paper to match with the decorations of the cake.
