I just spoke with a man who is renting his kitchen at a local coffee shop. He said he isn't going to charge me rent, but would want me to make cookies, muffins, brownies, etc for their display case. It is a very small coffee shop, so I don't think there would be too much work involved. I would make up the dough/batter and they would bake it in the morning. They close at 6:00 p.m. so I would have the whole place to myself in the evenings. I work during the day, so it works out great for us both. Thanks to Jessica for steering me to the commercialkitchensforrent.com website.

I'm so excited, I can have my own legal business now. Now I have to think of a good name.

Wow! That sounds like a great deal. Plus if he has a steady customer base, you will probably pick up some business from him. Good luck!

I seriously thought about Patty Cakes, but I'm not sure if it sounds to childish (no offense to anyone), I am going to offer my customers and probably their's too some healthier options such as whole wheat products and stuff made with agave nectar.

Here is a list of names I came up with maybe you guys can help me pick one.

Patty Cakes
Cakes Your Way
Cakes and more
Occasional Cakes
Cake Creations

I'm also open for other suggestions. I'm just so excited I can hardly think.

i like pattycakes, no space.

i really mulled over and over and over (ok you get it! icon_redface.gif )about my business name. finally, i nailed it down to "confection perfection" which sounds elite, elegant, formal...or "sugarbabies" which sounds fun, playful, whimsical, and creative. i call my daughter that as a nickname, and that's also what i consider each of the cakes to be that goes out my door...my little sugarbabies.

i settled on the 2nd one, and i'm constantly getting compliments like "great name"! i think it makes people smile and instantly warm up to me. no exaggeration, i probably get at least one compliment on it for every 3 or 4 business cards i give out...it also seems to stick in peoples mind well, which is what i'm definitely needing!
