I've just started a home bakery. I want to know if I can sell cakes that I have decorated with the licensed characters kits I purchased from decopac.com?

Thanks for your help.

I believe the answer is yes. From my understanding buying edible images is one of the few ways that you can legally do character related cakes.

Yes you can as you have paid for the permission to use the license in the price of the product.

Don't grocery store bakeries sell them? Why would you be any different?

Exactly Mike. As long as you do not copy it, you can use it.

I am sorry, let me rephrase that, as long as you dont copy and then sell your copy, you are fine. You can copy anything as long as you dont sell it

Yes, but unless you have a tax id number, you will not be able to order the kits at whole sale prices directly from DecoPac and BakeryCraft, and even with a tax id number, they may decide not to sell to you if they determne your business is too small. Additionally, when doing kit cakes, you must follow the design instructions provided with the kit exactly.

Very true, the licences they purchase have stipulations as to who they can sell to

Besides, doing kit cakes puts you in direct competition with the grocery store bakeries, which, since they are NOT designed to make a profit (everything in those bakeries is sold at a LOSS), you really cannot do.
