Bryce’s 12th birthday party is this weekend and we’re going to the movies to watch Disney Pixar’s Monsters University. Our invitations were made and sent out, name tags were made, so the next thing to do was get a Monsters University birthday cake.
We’ve been getting Bryce’s birthday cake from the same bakery for as long as I can remember. This year their prices went up and trying to stay on budget, we ended up ordering our cake at our local Safeway grocery store. Unfortunately Safeway didn’t carry any Monsters Inc. or Monsters University trademark cake designs and apparently you’re not allowed to just give them a design that is protected to print onto the cake due to copyright laws.
Their is a loop around it though!
If you create your own design using images that aren’t in the book of cake designs at your bakery, and they won’t let you just give them a design due to copyright laws, then you can get that design developed into a photo. When it’s developed into a photo it’s technically your property. Weird way to have to go about it, but it’s legal!
The cake won’t be ready until Saturday, but I’ll update this post with a picture so you can see what it looks like.
Stay tuned all this week for more Monsters University birthday party updates and ideas!

Update: Here’s our Monsters University birthday cake.
A piece of advice, be careful if you get coloured icing... the blue icing stained everyone’s lips, teeth, and tongue!
