Hrumpf! I have a ban against them myself, a personal kebosh if you will, I won't say it outside of here, but they are so dang boring and soul sucking and I am GLAD I have the copyright excuse to use to avoid doing them. If others want to cut out a million Minnie mouse ears and make 20 Hello Kitty head cakes every weekend, go for it. I ain't "cakes by Xerox".
THIS^^ I completely agree, which is partially why I haven't done any (other than the Angry Birds cake I made for my niece). Some of the designs are boring and played out, but others could be really cool.
Thank you everyone for your input. It was something that was bothering me one day. I'll stick to how I have been doing things!
