So if any of you are friends with me on facebook, you’ve seen that Naomi and I are pushing forward with our dream of opening our own bakery. Obviously neither of us are floppity jillionaires so we have to start small and work our way up.

We’ve got a plan.

Creating a “Made to Order” section on each of our blogs (or creating a dual blog) where people can place “orders” to have things made for parties or events. Things such as cakes and cookies and cupcakes (for now). We would use the tiny profit we make off of that to save up for our large dream of an actual bakery.

Maybe we’d even mail stuff to people who live far away. Who knows. These are the beginning stages.

But we have to start somewhere and right now we need a name for our little dream. That’s where I need your help. There are so many different choices that we could have. Personally, I don’t want anything with our names, or the city name or the street name since we don’t have a location yet. I don’t want to be a cakery or cupcakery because I don’t want to be pigeonholded into only doing one thing.

My mom says she wants to be the main baker and do all the breads. I tells her she can be the main financial backer, money bags.

Let me tell you a bit about me and Naomi…

We’re pretty awesome and cute and amazing. Naomi makes some pretty spectacular things while I’m more let’sjustthroweverythinginabowlandhopeitturnsoutgood.

So the names we (with help) have come up with thus far are….

Sprinkles and the City (because we love Sex and the City)

Sprinkle City

Hot Cross Sweets

The Honeysuckle

Sugar Mamas

Sweet Cheeks

I also kind of like the idea of a name with just one word like:

Sugar

Whip

Flour

Vanilla

I want a name that’s not going to be totally cheesy in ten years but is still cute and unique. Which is why I need your help!!

Please!!

    How about something sweet, simple like Made with Lotsa Love or just Lotsa Love something along those lines it’s unique, sweet, cute and how could that get old in 10 years? It also allows you to expand to anything later on, it will make people come in to see what your about and it embodies your love for baking/ cooking

    Ok working for a bakery that makes cupcakes, muffins, iced cakes, uniced cakes and cake mix I should have some great ideas. However on a Friday night I am not coming up with anything other than Mix-it-up… I will get back to you with more ideas once I recoup from the week……….Hey “Auntie Joanne’s” isn’t too bad……………just kidding.

    Buttercup
    Sweet Revenge
    Upper Crust
    Creme de la Creme
    Whip it
    Yummy Yolk
    Frosting
    Cherry Bomb
    Sweet and Simple
    Yum Bakery
    Icing on the Cake
    Let them Eat Cake!
    Bake and Frost
    Velvet
    Bite Me
    Sticky Fingers
    Swirls
    Indulge

    Ok I’m out of ideas lol I know some say the word cake in it but they were in my head so they had to be let out. A good idea would be to try and get your products sold in all the local coffee houses at first to bring in clients. You can offer them at a little higher then base price just to get the word out.
