I think you should go with something about your last name. It's perfect for a cake business because of the word "crum". Like Crumley's Crumbs or Crumbs by Crumley. ?? This would also almost guarantee that no one else has the name all ready. icon_wink.gif

Crumley's Crumbly Confections? Say that five times fast. I'm in the same boat. I've reached out to my FB friends because a lot of those folks have known me forever. They give good ideas but nothing makes me swoon lol. I agree with above, your last name works well. Good luck!

I live in WA and LOVE love LOVE Pt. Angeles icon_smile.gif I like the idea of using your last name in a catchy way-theres a famous bakery in NY thats called Crumbs though. So maybe Crumley's Cakes?
The Sweet Lovin' Cakes name sounds a bit like some thing else if ya know what I mean hehe

Keep it simple. 'Crumley's Cakes'. Or even Crumley's Custom Cakes. If your business takes off you'll just be known as Crumley's anyway as in, 'I always get my cakes at Crumley's!
OR...(forgive me, it's late and I'm punchy)...what if you had your name Crumley...but for your logo, you use your name and a little 'b' inserted up between the m and the l. It's hard to describe and I doubt if this looks like what I mean, but something like this:

b
Crum^ley's.

Only cuter...I can't show on text what I mean. But your b could be at an angle and a different color. And Crumley's would be in a cute font.
OK...I'm going to bed now!

I have to agree with the others, Carmijok nailed it! Great ideas!

I too am in the process of trying to decide on a name. I'd like to keep it incorporated with my farm. Since I bake my cakes with fresh eggs from my flock of hens, my son suggested "Farm Fresh Cakes". He also offered up "Fresh Laid Cakes" which I found hilarious but not usable. Anyone have any ideas? Im open to suggestions!

I like Farm Fresh Cakes...or Bakery.
Or you could be the 'Farmer's Daughter Custom Cakes', (could make a cute logo)
Market Fresh Cakes.
( i don't know...I kept thinking of 'Egg-ceptionally Fresh' as a tag line, but then, it's probably a bit too much. )
Or you could be 'Ferme Fresco Cakes' (farm fresh in French)

Good luck!
