You Doily Cake Boards Sweetness and Brightcan work with patterned paper, gift wrap, wallpaper, fabric or even lace to cover your base cake board. Cover the surface of the board with adhesive then place it face down on your patterned paper and the edges as shown before gluing into place underneath the board. Then repeat the process again to cover over the paper/fabric with clear contact paper. Your cake will be on a cake card and secure this to your base cake board as per your usual method.
