I know someone has to know the answer to this, so here goes. I was looking in the window of one of our local cake bakerys, yah it next to the supply shop and saw their beautiful sheet cakes with like cinderellas face or various images on different characters on the sheet cakes that looks like airbrushing, not edible image work? does anyone know how they get the lines so they can fill in with color? Do they use a stencil? If so is there a copyright on those like using shaped pans? I hope this is not a stupid question.
If it's not an edible-image, could it be possible that it is a transfer (royal icing transfer, color-flow transfer, chocolate transfer or frozen buttercream transfer)
If it is a edible image that was bought then the copyright doesn't come into play. If it is infact airbrushing work, then you aren't allowed to reproduce it and get paid for it.
