ceculsk-buying a plastic toy and putting in on a cake is not an infringement. Reproducing a licensed character, or selling a shaped cake that is licensed IS an infringement and against the law. Those charachter pans usually have a label that says "for personal or home use only"

It is always best to make INFORMED decisions, when it comes to bending or breaking the law. It is best to KNOW when you are taking a risk and be able to carefully weigh you chances.

I have a licensed kitchen, and pay insurance premiums to protect my business. However, if I choose to ignore the laws, it will be at my own risk. My rule for myself is Better safe, than sorry. If you are caught, it can be very expensive and can cost you your business.

Now you say you've never made a character pan, yet you said before you put such cakes in a box and sell the box. I guess I'm just not following what you are arguing against then.

(sigh).....I DO have a legitimate store and didn't say that I had never MADE a character pan cake before. I said I had never had an order for one. However I DID have a business plan and pricing list and that was and is my policy for those cakes. I WONT sell them. But should someone want one I would sell them a nice cake plate ..carrier...etc...and GIVE them the cake. I am finished with this topic. Don't forget to tip your baker...I'll be here all week. icon_biggrin.gif

I didn't really mean to open up a big ol' can of whoopass on this one.

Thanks to all for your feedback, and the links are helpful. I have never charged for a licensed cake (packaging or not), and since I'm just a home baker anyway, that seems like a pretty safe approach.
