Aimeezing Cakes.


I think you can get a lot of inspiration from looking at what people call their businesses in other states or cities. Not a good idea though to copy a similar name in your own town or state!

Life's too short to make cake pops.

Naming your business is one of the hardest things to do. At least it was when I tried :) You really have to think about what you want it to say about your shop.  Is your audience kids parties, weddings?  Will you do other things besides cakes?  I sat down and wrote up a list of what I wanted my name to convey. Things like classy, fun, practical, etc. Those aren't what I came up with, but just examples :)  Just make sure it reflects who you are and what your business does. 

 

IMO, Butterfly Creams says nothing about cakes or a bakery to me. Sorry!  What does a butterfly have to do with cake decorating?  And Creams just sounds, kinda dirty icon_redface.gif

Beginners, be sure to parrot advice and get your post count up as fast as you can. After all, it's not what you know, it's what people THINK you know.

What is your competitive advantage, e.g. the reason customers would buy cakes from you instead of your competition?

Ditto!  Who's your target audience? That will steer you in the direction of your name.

Flutterby Bakery could be cute! That's sort of whimsical like a kid's party.

Flutterby bakery is really cute.  You will probably  get folks who will say "flutterbee" but that's cute too.  Mariposa bakery?  (spanish for butterfly). I always though that was such a pretty word.  

I'd rather be baking!

Ooh, Mariposa is a pretty word!

The French word is Papillon, which I love, but if you don't speak French it's confusing to pronounce and even spell, which is not a good idea!

Papillon is also quite a popular breed of dog :)

 

I think Mariposa is sweet, it's pretty and a little cutesy without coming across as a bit childish. That way, if you ever do get into wedding cakes, it's a mature enough name. If that makes sense? It's easy to spell and remember as well, which is very important!

Mine is a bit tricky, and I've heard from a few people that they had a hard time tracking me down because of it, but I'm well established with the name already.
