Q. Do you charge more for wedding orders?
A. No, Cupcake Girl’s prices are dependant on the labour time involved in the design. All of Cupcake Girl’s prices are the same no matter what the occasion. We do however ask that you provide more notice for wedding orders as it allows us more time to prepare, especially if it’s a large order and you require set up service and delivery.
Q. Can you make licensed character cupcakes/cakes e.g. Mickey Mouse, Elmo etc?
A. It is unfortunate for Cupcake Girl to say this because she loves creating licensed character cakes for her own personal occasions. However, by law she cannot ‘sell’ licensed characters or brand name cakes as that would be infringing copyright laws.
This is a common dilemma for cake decorators, the only thing we can do is try and create something similar around the theme but it cannot be exact. For instance, we can create the base background scenery and purchase the licensed character figurines to put on the cake/cupcake. Cupcake Girl can also create her own versions of different characters.
There are plenty of other designs that Cupcake Girl can do that would suit any occasion as imagination is unlimited so the possibilities are really endless. Cupcake Girl is more than happy to work around things with you to create a cake/cupcakes of your requirements so long as they are legal to do so.
Q. How come I’ve seen other businesses sell licensed character cakes?
A. They may or may not have purchased a direct licensing agreement with the brand company to be able to sell the licensed cake.
Cupcake Girl has personally been in contact with a few company’s including Disney and Sanrio to acquire a licensing agreement. For some company’s such as Sanrio they do not offer it at this stage (believe me, I’ve tried!) and for others it requires an extensive processes for established businesses only (e.g. Walt Disney). So if you see businesses selling Mickey Mouse cakes or Louis Vuitton handbag cakes etc, either they have bought a licensed agreement direct with the company (which is a very tedious process for every popular licensed brand out there), or they are unaware of the legalities of copyright law or they don’t mind breaching the law and risking the closure of their business.
Q. What if I purchased licensed character toys, edible image, toppers to place on the cupcake/cake?
A. Yes you may do so, you have bought their licensed product and therefore you have the right to use it how you wish if that means putting it on top of a cupcake/cake at your party. If you would like to go this way, Cupcake Girl would be happy to create the base cupcake/cake with matching colour etc to the theme and character so long as what she is creating is not trademarked.
