that's what I was saying also - don't think that any big food supply chain (any really big, international or better - any serious company in general) would produce anything without permission of the licensor. Walmart has an advantage to be a huge company - no problem to get the license granted. If a small bakery or home baker would have asked for permission, most likely would not even get it...

Did anybody actually buy this cake to taste it - even for 'market research (competition valutation)' purpose only?? If yes, how does it taste and how many servings is it? Tesco says it serves approx. 14 but there aren't any measures (not even of the box) or weight whatsoever. Strange, they sell this product online... and that is another advantage, but at least the total weight should be stated. Not sure if recipient of the cake would be pleasantly surprised anyway...

Believe it or not, this cake came from Wal-Mart:

My friend got this a couple years ago for her son's birthday. I think it cost like $60. She was working at Wal-Mart at the time in the bakery (doing bread and stuff, not cakes). One of the girls who did cakes was allowed to take special orders like this. I'm not sure how they got away with that.

That's a lovely cake and I'm sure the children were delighted. Good price as well. As for licensing, it is available....for a price and with the volume that stores like Walmart have I'm sure they are in a position to strike a deal with Disney along with the general merchandising contract.
No license or insurance. Put lead wires in cakes, never wash hands, cake boards are used cardboard. No contracts cause I can't read or write. No lawyer cause I'm judgment proof. I bake with old mix boxes found behind Walmart. Now about my question

I am sure that it is because Walmart is a large large company that they could get the licensing for it. We little peons don't count as far as big companies go when it comes to giving licensing rights.

But I bet anything that the icing was not near as good as if it had been a real buttercream icing. I know kids don't care about that kind of stuff. Most of the little ones have never had real buttercream unless they have had the privilege of having a private person make a cake for them. But I personally am not going to spend $60. for a cake that does not taste fantastic. I don't care how great it looks if I can't eat it and enjoy it, forget it.

I am less concerned with what Walmart's doing than what our fellow bakers are doing as far as copyright violations. There are so many cakes being proudly displayed on here that are clear violations of copyrighted images, yet they get lots of compliments. You can't be all down on Walmart when you are praising and condoning your fellow bakers.

I've seen this Disney Cars cake in Wal-mart. It's made by another company and is shelf stable. I think I've seen it near the Joe Louis/Half Moons/ Little Debbies. (not in the fresh cake bakery case) It's in a red box on a shelf and is about a foot long and looks pretty bad. I'm sure little boys will love it, though!
