It’s easy to get excited by looking at lots of cake pictures. And it can be tempting to take one of those pictures and shop it around to other cake decorators, who are not cake designers, asking them to copy (or “recreate”) it. But that’s the wrong thing to do.
Cake designs are protected by copyright
Cake designs, like other types of art and design work, are legally protected by copyright. That means it is illegal to reproduce and sell copies of that design. Even copying an important or integral part of someone else’s work violates copyright unless you have specific permission. And the urban myth that “changing 10% of the design” is enough to make it different (and therefore avoid copyright infringement) is completely wrong. Copying another cake designers design is not fair to the original cake designer.
Why don’t you see more full pictures of my cakes on this website?
I am a cake designer and spend many hours developing unique and beautiful cake design concepts for my clients. Unfortunately, there are other people who simply like to decorate cakes and they are happy to try and copy any picture a customer gives them, or that they find online, and charge a lower price for their lower quality copies. That’s why I don’t have more full cake pictures on display, to protect my designs and keep them special for clients.
I am happy to discuss the full range of design options with clients and welcome enquiries from those who appreciate quality workmanship and professional service.
I make cakes in Brisbane and the cakes for the Gold Coast with gorgeous handmade decorations and embellishments. All my cake designs are original, 100% designed and decorated by me. For general information on ordering and delivery see the info page.
