How to use a cake tray?

The cake tray can be used in different ways, in addition to its role as a support for your cake, they can be covered with sugar paste to become a real decorative element in your cake design.

Another way to decorate it is also to circle it with a cake ribbon, this way you give the color you want to the outline of your tray.

Finally you can use markers to draw on it, an airbrush to spray paint on it or even place figurines of the same theme as your cake on the tray!
