So I just received a message from someone wanting a call of duty cake that has an edible image, for only 30 people. All black fondant, no other design other than the edible image. First, I do not have a printer so I would have to order from either Etsy, Wal-Mart, or a Bakery supplier. Its 8:22 where I am located and everything is closed. Is it ok to tell her I will get back with her tomorrow. Also I usually would charge 3.00 per serving for a fondant cake. is this about accurate for the cake I described?
Tell your client to get permission from the copyright holder before you can make the cake.
Of course it's fine to tell someone that you need to get back to them. And yeah, that's a copyright issue too. If someone tried to order that from me in my Etsy shop I wouldn't sell it to them because it's not my copyright to sell. If you got a Decopac one that would work.
Ok, so it's actually not allowed for me to purchase this print out from wal-mart or another place like that? I really truly do need to contact someone for permission?
Most of those places KNOW the copyright laws and will not print it out...period. To make a few bucks on the edible images is just not worth it for the "print shop", probably not worth it for the baker either, but we all know those threads.
I am fairly sure you will not get any "big" bakery to print a copyright image for you.
Ok, never had a request for an edible image! Glad I asked!
