Hello, what about the copyright on these designs? Are these not illegal to reproduce and sell?

This may answer your question..."Another way to legally use Disney characters could be to use them in what the law refers to as "transformative use." Transformative use requires that you change, or transform, the character enough so that it is no longer a mere copy of the original. The resulting transformation is sometimes called a "derivative work." For example, if a painter created an original oil painting of his family and included the Disney character Tinkerbell as a family member, his use of Tinkerbell would be fair use because of its commentary that the artist considers Tinkerbell a member of his family. The use of Tinkerbell in the painting could be could be characterized as a transformative use, and the painting could be called a derivative work."

I personally would consider it an honor if eisner and the disney suits filed a cease &desist on my cakes......it would mean they actually thought i was capturing the character!

I have been doing this now for over 40 years, it IS illegal to reproduce any Copyrighted or Trademarked characters. If I 5 year old child can tell what it is, it is illegal. My frustration is that Cake Central allows pictures and blogs to be written without any notes saying that is is illegal to reproduce and sell these cakes. I totally get I can do this for my child as long as I didnt make a profit on it. It's frustrating as a bakery owner to be one of the only ones that stands up for what is right without any help from outlets like Cake Central and other bakery owners for that matter. We just need more advocates out there standing up for what is right, so I dont always look like the bad guy to my clients while educating them on the law.
