Tile for kitchen counter top

We are going to be placing tile on our kitchen counter top but I am not sure if I should remove the existing countertop and then install plywood, concrete board, and the tile. Or should I just install concrete board and tile over the existing countertop.

I know we can install the tile over the counter top but my concern is having big edging tiles.

Note. Our countertop is formica

I'd pull off the formica top, install 5/8" exterior plywood, thinset 1/4" cbu & then set tile on it.
