    Amazing, thank you so much. I used to purchase a few large wooden boards (It’s called MDF here) that are 2 meter in lenght a appr. 80-90 cm in width. And saw them myself in size for the cake I needed. Always square or rectangular LOL. You can use a square cakeboard for a round childrens birthday, right? it usually was for a party of max 20 people. I covered the board in matching giftwrap and then cellophane. But I didn’t remove the cellophane. For weddingcakes only, I purchased a thick cakeboard with the silver or gold design on it. It was already covered and waterproof. Now I will definitely follow your lead, master. And the Styrofoam legs underneath is an excellent idea. Looks amazing sir.

    Hi Serdar, How do we remove the cellophane wrap around the cake Board post decorating the cake ?

    1. Serdar Yener says:

      cut with sharp blade . when you start pulling a little forward , it will tare from the edge of the cake.

    Hi I’m very new to your site, could you please let me know the size of board for the Digger cake. Thanks

    thank you for that thorough demonstration

    Hi Serdar,
    Thank you for sharing all these Technics. I am a Cake Designer for 40 years and I must tell you that I have learnt a lot with you. I am a perfectionist and with all your tips it helps a lot in my work.
    I will try to use this way of how to cover the board which I have never seen before. The Cellophane rolls used by the florists here, seems to be a bit more stiff than you show in this video. Yours look like plastic.
    Thank you for everything you show. GREAT TUTORIALS!!!
    Have a wonderful holiday season.

    IN the states i have never seen this done. Do you have this in PDF?? What kind of fabric do you use? etc..

    1. Serdar Yener says:

      Sorry, we don’t have PDF for this. I am using velvet because the texture does not get any stains. You must have plastic sheet in between so that the cake has no contact with it.

  7. Meena bhatt says:

    Hello sir, what kind of a board do you use ? In my country we only get thin ready boards that are covered in silver sheet, I mean they are normal and basic.

    1. Serdar Yener says:

      I am ordering from laser cutting company. You probably go and get 9 or 12 mm wooden sheets and use jigsaw and cut your own. Watch the video from our website.

      1. cebart says:

        Which video are you referring to? I definitely would not wish to cut those wooden sheets myself; I don’t have the setup to do so. However, perhaps I can have the store cut them for me. I watched the video on covering the cake board with fabric, and it was so amazing. Was that the video you were referring to?

  8. Francisco Da Silva says:

    Do you have a video that explains how to remove the plastic when the cake is done? I think that i allresdy saw it but i can’t find it… Sorry.
