I would like to make a bed that I place in the middle of the cake. This is a toy story theme and i want to know if I can use cardboard for the bed and can I ice the cardboard?

You can also use styrofoam. Cover it in paper as well.

Icing the cake board

The best thing to do is wrap it in either aluminum foil or wax paper. The icing will bleed into the board and possibly fade the color of the icing. I use waxed paper more than foil cause it is better with holding the icing consistancy.
