Hi everyone, Long story short, does anyone know what a deco pack is? I was asked if I could work with a deco pack with no airbrush (and of course I said yes!) icon_lol.gif but that leads me to my question -- what the he** is a deco pack?? Does anyone know? Thanks in advance!! icon_biggrin.gif

Thank Jan! Yes, I did that earlier, and saw that website -- I guess I'm trying to figure out exactly what these packs consist of. They look like instructions on how to decorate a particular cake and the toys that you put on top of them. Is that right?

I think it's those prepackaged kits, everything included for decorating a particular cake. Like this...

http://www.thriftyfoods.com/EN/main/stores/bakery/cakes/bakery-cakes-deco.html

Everything included, colored icings, tips, plastic decorations. Though I've never made anything like this. SO I could well be wrong.

These are the cake kits you hear so much about on here; they are what most grocery stores use. My understanding is that when one of these kits are used, the decorator is also paying for the licensing that enables the ONE TIME USE of the character .... BUT!!!!!! ..... the cake must be made exactly like the photo of the kit.

If I don't have all of that exactly right, I invite and welcome anyone with a bit more expertise than me to step in here for us! thumbs_up.gif

Decopac is the supplier of all the plastic cake kits. For example the ones used by publix, Winn Dixie etc. You can open an account with them to buy the sets discounted or buy them from a supplier marked up. I don't know about other supermarkets, but I know publix sells them to the public.

Okay that makes sense, it's kind of what I thought. Indy, I cringe at the "make it exactly like the picture" part though -- nothing I do EVER looks like the picture! icon_lol.gif Thanks for your help everyone!! icon_biggrin.gif

After reading some other threads. The answer is that "you are only authorized to decorate the cake exactly as shown in the picture that comes with the kit! You are not allowed to use a DecoPac licensed character cake kit, or any pieces of it, in any manner other than that is shown in the book."

I go to the decopac website for ideas on cupcake cakes and then I order the decopac toys online (Amazon or Ebay).

I only use them on my cupcake cakes for friends and family.
