The word delicious has been around since we have been eating so "licious" doesn't make all of us think of a bootylicious pop star. I guess that all depends on the age of your clinetele.

Since Stockton does indeed have a high crime rate how about Killer Confections..sweets to die for... or maybe "Cake Criminals"...so good it should be illegal..LOL. You've had a lot of great suggestions here. Mull them over for a few days and see which one you keep going back to. In the end, you have to really like your name because that will come through when you are talking to people about your business. The name that you choose will define the flavor of your business so don't rush it!



Thanks Ladyfish....I did get a lot of good suggestions!! I checked "sugar and slice" and that is already trademarked so I cant use that....but for some reason "Cakes Delish" is attracting me!! I know some people really didnt care for it here, but I seem to like it alot. I dont know why....but there is something about that name that I like. I am envisioning that name with a cool logo and dark rich colors and I am liking it!!

I am going to give it a couple of days and if I still feel the same way about it....then "Cakes Delish" it is icon_smile.gif

I love these! Those would work here in Cinci as well! We got a show!!! Police Women of CinciIt is airing Thursday, on TLC, I think. Pretty neat! We live right across the river, about 5 miles, as the crow flies, but if you use roads, lol, it is about 18 miles. Darn roads! My DH grew up there, but in the suburbs, all mollycoddled.

Love this thread....so many great ideas! When I was trying to think of a name for my business someone mentioned "Sweet Creams" and that always stuck in my head. I like one word names too- it seems classy and chic, so I went with "Frosted". Too bad sugar and slice is taken- its adorable!

That one sounds a bit dirty as well. icon_redface.gif I must be a pervert, or love food in the wrong way.

I guess I'm glad I didn't go with luscious cakes, as the more I think about it it sounds nasty!!

One word names are way cool....but it's so hard. "frosted" is super cute.... There's a shop nearby that's called "frost".

Idk...but I still like "Cakes Delish...or written Cakes De~lish" or something like that icon_smile.gif

"iced" is similar, and also really cute.

[quote="leafO"]Great thread Normita, really got me giggling icon_smile.gif

I really like sugar and slice so cute!

Here's the website to check on current trademarks. Click on the link that says search marks

http://www.uspto.gov/index.jsp[

I have searched sone names to see if they are trademarked but don't understand when it means "dead or alive"

What about just "Luscious"
But saying it out loud...I guess it does sound naughty....but is that so wrong? lol
post #57 of 65
when you see dead it means it was used but is no longer active, therefore you can trade mark it. if you see alive it means it is currently active and you can't use it. but make sure its for baking...if its for clothing or toys etc it doesn't make a difference if its dead or alive....baking/pastry/baked goods etc. are all you want to look at. for example my name is simply irresistible and is active/live under all baked goods, bake shops, desserts. but there is another simply irresistible that is trademarked by a clothing retail store, doesn't affect me because we are under different categories. and don't forget to LOOK for the dots! my name is .org because .com was taken, if both were taken i would have checked .net etc. being that the internet is such a well used form of selling almost anything you want to make sure your name is available for trade mark and internet! good luck! sounds like you like cakes~delish, if it feels right and really speaks to you DO IT!!!
I love my family, and I love to make people smile. I am a night owl, and get most inspired in the later hours. I love to shop and bake, cake art is my passion!
