I *know* this has been asked a gazillion times, but I'm having trouble finding the right search words to find a thread.
I have a customer asking me to do a 3D Cars cake of Lightning McQueen. I'm certain I can't do it - for lack of skill - but I'm also sure I'm not allowed for copyright or something. Is that right? Can someone point me to thread with the info??
Sorry to fill up board space with something I know has been tackled!!
You could probably find them with the word copyright in the search but basically, unless you get the rights from the company (and I don't think that happens with Disney) you can not make a copyrighted image cake for sale. What I usually do is make the "backdrop" for the character and have the client purchase the figurines to go on the cake. HTH. Cat
Cars is Disney. Read the Mickey mouse post above yours. There's plenty of info.
If it helps, I made a racetrack cake in the shape of a 3 and had the person put their own Lightning McQueen on it. There are tons of racetrack cakes in the galleries.
