Is there more to the story?

I heard on the radio that Children's Protective Services got involved.

Names do mean everything

Perhaps the cake should have had the name of the Grand Mufti of Israel/Palestine who was one of Hitler's best friends on it as well. Strange bedfellows indeed, but with one common goal. The goal of the Twin Towers terrorism in modern times. At least Lawrence wore a Kefiyah. Did these parents? I think not! Just the same their goals seem to be the same.

infringement of rights?

The parents can buy a tube of icing and put whatever they want on the cake themselves. It's a publicity stunt.

what's in a name

In the book "Freakanomics" they relate stories of people who named their kids. One father named his sons 'Winner' and Loser' to odd effect. Winner was far from it and Loser became a cop. They call him 'Lou.' May baby Adolf equally flip-flop on his name and his parents ambitions, and make himself someone to be admired for his goodness rather than his namesake. But G-d help him to survive his childhood trials at the hands of his peers. Names are already weapons in the hands of children, his will be a lethal one.
