Ok I have a customer that has asked me to make her Granddaughter 1st Birthday. She has order the decorations from Birthdayexpress.com "lil 1st Princess birthday"

Well from the site you can see the pan which is very close to the Wilton Pan which I own already...but the issue I am having is that I think I should carve a crown to match the crown that is on the napkins to match..



So my question to all you cake pros out there is should I do the Cake pan or carve the crown so that it matches the decorations?

Thanks In advance for all advise and support.

I would use the pan you already have. I think it is cuter than the crown on the plates anyway. It doesn't have to match exactly. Plus, then you won't have the wasted cake from the carving.

If it was a gift from me, I'd do the pan. If she is buying it, I'd do the carving.

Did she ask you to match it or just do something with the theme? If she didn't ask for it to match exactly I would just use the Wilton pan and make it simalar.

Alot of party invites and decor are trademarked/copyrighted. If they are then you can't legally copy them.

She said it was up to me...so that is why I was ask my fellow CCers. I understand that all party invites and decor are trademarked/Copyrighted but so are most party themes that we use to get our and or the clients Inspiration for the cakes we decorate for those special days whether it be for someones birthdays or weddings.

Thanks for your comment.

I don't think it would be too hard to use the cake pan you have and carve away a bit to make it look just like the invite.
