Recent comments

 First off from the comments on my post about the most recent cake order I did at work.

Andrea said Oh how fun, Ann, and a very good suggestion. Our local mom 'n pop grocery store does character cakes all the time. I wonder if they're breaking the law?! Probably!

Actually, you can do character cakes under certain circumstances. I can purchase either an edible image or what's called a deco pac which contains various pieces to put on a cake. These are ok to use no matter what character it is. However, if I freehand draw a licensed character that is considered copyright infringement.

On my post regarding the shower fizzies a lot of you confessed to doing similar things. It's nice to know I'm not alone. 

On my post regarding my really bad day at work last Friday Catherine said Ann you need a 2 week vacation, some place restful but beautiful - away from both home and people. 

Well Catherine, I couldn't agree more. It would be wonderful to go lounge around somewhere having people wait on me and not having to worry about anything.

Well that's about all I've got for today. Maybe some time before this week is over I'll have something more to blog about.

Even when you post about your comments, it is interesting! So this makes me wonder...I can't remember if you ever take a vacation! Do you take two weeks a year? Do you split them up?

I wouldn't know about infringements as such. I guess done your store makes a profit from selling the cakes you decorate, it would be considered breaking the copyright. Who'da thought.

on the test i clicked the not a robot and it worked, wish you were here to do day trips, FL is full of things to do and sleep at home each night. at Jungle gardens here, there are signs saying take all the photos you want, but if you use them you must put where you took them. give them credit

You have to be careful what you use. I couldn't decorate a cake if my life depended on it.

Have a fabulous day, Ann. Big hug to you and lots of scritches to Gibbs. ♥

This is very interesting Ann.

Now I understand, Ann. Thank you for explaining. Yep, my local little grocery IS guilty of copyright infringement. *lol* If the original copyright holders would look at the images drawn though, they'd probably laugh... because the resemblance is... well... just enough to know what the decorator was trying to do. :-) ~Andrea xoxoxo

I agree that you need a long vacation. I'm still ticked that one of the managers took fair week off and dumped more work on you.

Catherine - Mixed Media Artist said...

maybe try to find some "short breaks" where on your days off, you go away for a night or two, again somewhere nice where someone waits on you hand and foot (food)
