Technically, you know, if you want to get all law-abiding about it, you have to have permission to use copyrighted characters on cakes.
Or, you can try one of these techniques:
1. The Alter-Ego:
it's not Thomas the Train. It's Loco Larry, the Mentally Unstable Locomotive.
2. The Unibrow
Is that a seagull on your face, or are you a licensed Disney character? (Seagull. Duh.)
3. The Brother By a Different Mother:
...just keep your hands where I can see them!"
4. The Foreign Equivalent:
, El Lightningo
"Hola, Senior Rustico."
"Isn't it nice how we are completely original foreign creations in no way affiliated with Disney or its subsidiary companies?"
Tracy L., Ed S., Erin M., & Emily S., er, none of you are lawyers, right?
