I originally wanted something that was kind of synonomous with the fact that i am in Florida... so i though .. Oranges, and couldnt see the fitting in with cakes... then i thought well i could mirror Charm City and use the state name... so i picked Sunshine State Cakes, and kind of ran with it... now i want to make it into a corporation... become legal, because we are starting to take off....

So here'e my dilema... do i really like the name?
Its a mouthful, but im sunny, and i would deliver anywhere in the state of florida (for a fee), but i wanted something that kinda shows how hip, modern, contemporary and colorful our cakes are...

Any ideas?

p.s. i love this site... it is a new addiction. icon_smile.gif

What about just "Sunshine Cakes"? I tend to like shorter names, only because I remember them better. Good luck with your business!

I have read online somewhere tips on finding a name for a bakery or business I guess.
*Short & sweet is best
*Unique of course
*easy to spell
and don't make it geographical
in case you have to move your business name sunshine state may be true about some states but necessarly a good thing let's say in Texas parts of Texas is know for their horrible hot months.
Well just some tips I read once hope it helps.
I do like Sunshine Cakes too

I like Sunshine Cakes as well. Sunshine State Cakes while it is very cute, is quite a mouth full...I always think of how I would answer the phone w/ that name in it, for example...."Sunshine State Cakes can I help you?".....that's alot. Good luck icon_smile.gif

I see there is a Sunshine State Cakes out of FL already (if you check the website name, you'll see it). I like Sunshine Cakes, but the only potential problem I see would be a website name, if you plan on having one because there is a sunshinecakes.com out there.

Oh, so it's your website! It's very cute. I've actually been mulling this over for a while, and the more I think about it, the more I like it. It's not really that long, it totally conveys your message. Anyone can be Sunshine Cakes, as the sun shines almost everywhere (except here lately, but that's another story icon_biggrin.gif ) Anyway, I think Sunshine State Cakes is ok, as long as you don't plan on moving out of the state. icon_smile.gif
