Hi all! Im pretty new to cake central but have found so many helpful things on here allready! I started making cakes about 3 years ago. Currently I only make them for friends and family but i would love to some day have a business of my own. I wanted to come up with a catchy name for my "business" and would greatly appreciate any of your help. My last name is Murders (yes like the crime but not to worry we are all nice icon_biggrin.gif) so i was thinking "Murders Killer Cakes" but im not sure if that is too morbid for the cutesy cake industry? Do you think that potential clients would be scared off by that name? Any input or ideas would help! Thanks Ashley

I think a play on murders is funny! I actually find it ironic that cakes and cupcakes are so innocent and your last name isn't! Your slogan could be like "We make killer cakes!" and the name could be Murder's Killer Cakes!

i love "killer cakes"

 

then when it is learned that your last name is murders--it will really work

 

i think killer and murders in the same name is a lot

 

so on the business card

 

killer cakes

that's incredibly catchy!!!

 

for your logo you could have a silhouette of 'you' with a giant knife pointed at and hovering over a wedding cake

 

maybe a few 'drops' of icing of course falling off the knife :)

Yes, Killer Cakes was my first thought, too.  Knife stabbed into a cake dripping with ganache?
