Okay. My husband has been urging me to set up a home business for my cakes and cookies but I have totally just procrastinated and probably more so didn't do it out of fear. Anyway, my church asked me to do a cake for our Grand Affair, topsy turvey to feed 250. After much thought I decided to decline since I wasn't 'legit' even though they didn't care about that aspect. However, it was just the thing I needed to get me going on the home business part.

So, now the big question.....what name???
I had been calling myself "AlyCakes and More" but I have kind of fallen out of favor with it (my husband didn't really like it either).
What do you all think of the following name:

The Confection Connection

Please be honest and I'm certainly open to suggestions.

Thank you,
Aly

I'm pretty sure that one has been taken (although it IS very catchy). Tell is a little more about yourself, your location, your interests...whatever you don't mind telling. I played around for several months and couldn't come up with a name, then one day my mom suggested using the road we live on in the name. I've lived on/around the Three Forks Road area all my life and it never occured to me to use it in my business name until my mom suggested it. One day when I design a logo, it will have three forks somewhere on it. Lots of possibilities!

I did see that same name for a business in IL but I figured it was far enough away icon_smile.gif

Good idea.
I live in Loveland, Ohio (just north of Cincinnati), I am married and have 2 young girls. I LOVE sports (swam in college at Syracuse), exercising, photography, playing, baking of course.
I work full-time in the financial industry and started the whole cake and cookie thing as a hobby after my oldest daughter's first birthday but it has caught on a bit through word of mouth.
I have always loved to bake, wish I could say the same about cooking.
I want the name to be catchy, but not really hokie.
I don't really want it to have "cake" in the name since I also do cookies and some candies.
I didn't want my name in it as no one ever spells it correctly.
My street name is Old Farm Drive but I can't see that in the name at all icon_smile.gif

Help!!!!

Being from Loveland, that makes it easy to use the name of your town...What about "Loveland Sweets" or something simple like that?

See now, Loveland just gets my wheels turning too. Since you are operation a home based business, how about:

Loveland Villa Confections
Loveland Cottage Desserts
Loveland Manor Sweets

Old Farm Specialty Shoppe <-- Had to throw that one in there since you didn't want to use your street name. icon_lol.gif

...or any combination of those? Just throwing some thoughts out there.
