Help with unique cupcake business name!!

post #1 of 15
Thread Starter 
Hey everyone my name is Christie and my best friend Nicole and I are toying with the idea of possibly opening our own cupcake business! We have been messing around with some different names and was wondering if anyone could help us!
For starters we are envisioning more of a retro/yet edgy vibe. We are both young and very vibrant people so we would like the business to express that in all aspects. We come from a very small town so we really are trying to find a name and look that are different from others in our area, also remembering the fact that we are trying to do all this ourselves. Attached is an idea of an image that we would include on a flyer/business card/ website etc.
The only two names we have come up with so far are:
Not Your Mama's Cupcakes and Suicide Cupcake

If there are any other suggestions they would be very much appreciated! Please keep in mind that we are inexperienced and would appreciate any tips/help that anyone could give to us to make our dream happen!!

I don't think either is a great idea - people in a small town might like their mama's cupcakes and suicide? Really? I'll give it some thought but nix on both IMHO.

I couldn't see your images but how about something like...

LustCakes
Cupcake Munchies
Cupcake Quirk
Charisma Cupcakes
The Bold and the Cupcake

and my fave...Cupcravery

I really like cupcravery. I also don't like suicide cupcake - doesn't give off a great vibe. Not your momma's cupcakes just seems very long. I find that short and sweet usually roll off the tongue better.

Good Luck on your bus. whatever name you decide on!

Death by Cupcake...Couture Cupcakes...Le Cuppycake..Couture Confections.

Suicide cupcake sounds like you're trying too hard to be edgy and different.

Cupcutes, Cupcakery, I think you want a name that leaves one with a good feeling, Cupcake Suicide doesn't do that for me.

I forgot to add my opinions on your suggestions..
Not Your Mama's.. = not as tasty as Mama's to me, less than not more than
Suicide Cupcake is not somewhere I'd want to eat. Why risk death for a cupcake? Is it because the kitchen isn't clean and you smear chicken juice about? I don't wanna find out.

hahahah. Hilarious Lauren! But i agree... not my mama's cupcakes is definitely better the Suicide Cupcakes but I think both are no go.

Mind you many would likley think JustKist Cakes is a silly name so I recognize that this is a VERY subjective thing.

i'd play on the retro theme. what is your idea of retro? (if you say, 'like, you know, the olden times like the 80's,' i'll beat you with a 12 pound cell phone. icon_smile.gif)

i don't see any images, either, so here goes some junk off the top of my head:

Kool Kat's Cupcakes. ~ it's a 50's thing. Daddio's Cupcakes falls in this area, too.
Thunderbird Cakes/Thundercakes. ~ just spit-balling on a thunderbird car theme.

there's always 60's retro:

Electric CupcakeLand. ~ gotta give jimi his due.
Cupcake Peace/Peace, Love & Cupcakes. ~ use only if you love tye-dye and peace symbols.

honestly, i'd do some market research and decide what the median age of my customer is likely to be, then do a retro thing they can relate to. i mean, duh, huh? icon_smile.gif the 70's were a great era:

Shagcakes. ~ 'nuff said. works on so many levels, lol.
Mystik Cupcakes.

i don't know where you're located, so maybe there's something local you can play off of, like some history or particular kind of weather (like seattle) or landscape. additional inspiration can be found by googling catch phrases or fashions from the era you're interested in.

names i'd likely avoid regardless of any era:

Spooge. ~ someday i may want a rock band, and this will be its name.
Cupcake, Bloody Cupcake.
Cakegasm.
I Will Stab You 2 Death In UR Sleep... Cupcakes.
2 Hot College Chix Cupcakes. ~ actually, i'd probably go to this one....

,Lol why losing families who experienced suicides in their home(Kidding but may sound real)
