I read part of that chat! I wish I could join so I’ll just answer this here to assure you guys I’m not going to mouse jail.
Heres’ the thing: A year ago, Disney started cracking down on bakers for Disney cakes for copyright infringement. It didn’t matter that one baker worked from her home, made two mickey mouse face cakes and made $30 on both- they allegedly served her a $3,000 fine and cease & desist notice. (The reason being, Disney makes their own cakes in their parks and does this to discourage customers going anywhere else.)
For this reason, I don’t accept money for Disney cakes. Any disney cake I’ve ever done has been for fun and no money exchanged. That Gravity Falls cake? Just fun and sculpting practice. Plus a fun treat for you tumblr fans!
At that point it’s just fanart.
It’s why you’ll never see a Disney Nerdache Box or any ready-made goods on our site.
As for the Bakery? A large percentage of our budget is proper licensing, so that we can reproduce copyrighted characters in cake. (As shown in our budget wheel.)
So no mouse jail for Ant just yet, and btw yes It was totes delicious!
