I'm from Sacto so I know exactly what you mean about Stockton! When Indydebi asked if Stockton had any nicknames I thought "oh yes, but none you could put in a business name!" lol. Just for the record, Cakes Delish and cakelicious were just suggestions to get you to look at things in a different way. Delish actually makes me think of Rachel Rae. 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
