You should roll with "Gateaux Fabulous", it sounds elegant to the older crowd and the younder crowd will think it's funny. icon_biggrin.gif

Whatever you do... I beg you... Don't use some stupid cliche' in your name UNLESS your city/state is void of other cake companies with stupid cliche' names. As you can see from my screen name... I speak from experience. icon_smile.gif

In the Phoenix Metro area we have these cliche' names for cake companies:

Let Them Eat Cake
Icing on the Cake
Piece of Cake

I cannot tell you how many times we have been confused with one of our competitors. I'm not talking about the casual phone call wrong number, I'm talking about facilities calling us on the wedding day asking what time we are delivering the cake... and of course, it wasn't us.

Whatever you decide make sure it is something unique to your area to avoid any headache.

Best of luck!

I recently thought of a name for a cake business...."Cake Divine".....but I already have one. My name is Sumer, so I call my business "A Sumer Affair Catering". (I do catering and cakes) Now "Cake Divine" is open, here at least! icon_biggrin.gif

I'm in the same shoes as you are! I haven't make a final decision on which business names that I would like to us. I have at least 20 names and still UNDECIDED. icon_sad.gif

What I'm planning to do is to contact your close friends and relatives to cast a vote thru your email system. How's that sound? Hopefully it will help me to make my final decision.

PieceofCakeAZ you are so right we have a lot of cake businesses that have close to the same name thanks for the tip I had not thought about that. I know this is a dumb question but what does gateaux mean and how do you pronounce it? The longer you live the more you learn. Thanks in advance! icon_biggrin.gif What would I do without my CC family?

It's French for cakes.

As for pronunciation, it's kind of hard to explain over the internet- the French language has a lot of nasal sounds.

But my closest explanation would be (very nasally icon_razz.gif ) "GAHGH------AUH------T (tip of your tongue "t") OOOO.

Just wanted to put in my two cents worth. icon_smile.gif I love the name that salsera came up with -- "Sweet & Petite". I think that would be perfect for you since you mainly do petit fours. Good luck on choosing thumbs_up.gif

The pronunciation is kinda like "gat-toe". Imagine Eric Cartman saying "ghetto" and you have it. It's a play on the phrase "Ghetto Fabulous".

Ha! That's funny! I have a useless talent of mocking Eric Cartman's voice and I used to have my best friend rolling when I would do his version of the ghetto song by Elvis!

I really like Sweet and Petite. It fits.

I agree with the Sweet and Petite it fits what you are doing. That is my vote thumbs_up.gif

I thought I had came up with an Ok name but after this last show I did I am rethinking my name. KAY'S CAKES AND MORE was what I had. I do alot of crafts and wedding flowers and such so I thought that would work. And I had a woman ask me if I was at a bridal show in a neighboring town. Because Kay's Cakes was at the show. I told her no that wasn't me and I was not aware of this other person with a similar name. I am just starting out so I will probably be changing it also. So I am also looking for a name again.
