Name for cake business

post #1 of 38
Thread Starter 
Hello cake friends
I am looking for a fun name for my new business. Do any of you have a name that you wished you used, or any runner up names from when you named your business? I seem to be having a mental block with this!
Thanks
Keesha

I'm from a big surfing town, and I love to be at the beach. SO my first choice was pipe dreams, because it pertained to the water and to decorating. Unfortunately, there are 3 other non cake businesses in my state with that name, so I didn't want to use it. I'm not very creative with these sort of things, and I personally don't like "Keeshon's Cakes" or anything like that...I like to have the name "pop", ya know?!!
Hopefully someone else can help more!
Always in my heart

A lot of people will name their business after the street the business is on. I think JammJenks is called Three Forks Cakes (after the street name). Just an idea.

I had a terrible time coming up with mine. Then one night at choir practice at church, our director suggested, "The Back Porch Bakery". It just rang like a bell, and made sense, because we remodeled our tiny back porch/mudroom into a kitchen, and it is very small. We also live out in the country, and the name just seems to describe the location just right. When people come to get their cakes, they seem to really make a connection between the place and the name. I also agree that putting part of the street location in the name can be a creative and distinguishing thing to do too. Best of luck to you!

When I picked my name, I just wrote down a ton of different words on a piece of paper, words associated with cake, words i liked, words i wish i could fit into the name, and I tried every which way possible with all the words there to see what worked best and thats how I came up with Sugar Wishes. Just an idea, I think its easier to write and look at something. Good luck picking a name!!!

If your going to name it around the location I would still go with something creative. I cant stand seeing people that do art for a living and come up with names that are less than creative! Like if you live in Cambridge, naming your business Cambridge Cakes to me isnt very creative. You should try to make the name with what you specialize in or to give a hint of what you do. Off the top of my head Top Tier Bakery, or How The Cookie Crumbles.
I decided on my name just because of what happens when I bake. I make a mess! I have sugar everywhere. So it just seemed right to name my business With Sugar On Top. A lot of people commented on how they thought it was cute. I told them it was because the sugar ends up on top of the stove, on top of the counters, on top of the floor.... lol

Your business name is super cute...and so are your suggestions! Maybe the OP will like one of those!

I always wished I'd called myself "The Cake Whisperer". Heh.
It's what you learn after you know it all that counts.

what is your life about? Mine revolves around my children - I was a SAHM prior to doing this so I knew I wanted to incorporate my three boys into the name. Another thing I would suggest is to look at tons of bakeries online. Do you want it to end with cakes, sweets, bakery, baking company, etc?

When I came up with mine, "Cake or Death", it came from a comedy sketch I love by Eddie Izzard. A couple days later, I also thought of "Cake and Dagger". There are so many great plays on words you could use. Definitely go for something creative. I constantly get comments on how much customers love the name of my business!

2. Sugar Plums
3. Powdered Blossoms
4. Sensational Sweets
Good luck!!
