AI was wondering if anyone could help me name my cake business or at least throw some ideas my way.

A little about me.

My name is Tiffany. I live in Bermuda. I am a single mother. I am going to be working from home. I do both buttercream and fondant cakes. I really want something short and sweet for my name.

Cake Orchard is standing out in my mind but it really reminds me of fruit and I feel like I'll be obligated to put fruits in all my cakes which I don't want to do.

I specialize in small cakes and cupcakes. Cupcake towers. Like these: http://blog.pinkcakebox.com/cupcake-stand-gallery

I didn't make those but I'm on my iPad and can't upload pictures at this moment. So that link is to just give you an idea. Small cakes on top with cupcakes surrounding.

I may want to get into cookies as well.

Any ideas so far? I can give you additional information if needed.

AI like Cake Orchard! When I picked my bakery's name, I knew I wanted it to be more elegant and sophisticated sounding, so people would think of it as high end and not cutesy. There are a lot of cutesy cupcake shops around where I live: sweet tooth fairy, cutesy cakes, sugar daisy, etc. I named mine Citrus Spice Bakery. Not everything I bake has citrus and/ or spices in it, but I thought it sounded elegant and not babyish.

AThank you everyone. It's been helpful. I'm going to write them all down and think about it some more.

That's good to know about your business name. Because I really like cake orchard. I got that book you suggested I get. (The cake bible.) because like you said, I didn't like the box banana cake recipe as much as my scratch cakes! Thank you for the suggestion!

AYou'll love the Cake Bible. The whole back section is for professional bakers making wedding cakes, and has charts for modifying recipes for all the sizes of cake pan.

I agree that you need to make sure your name projects what kind of bakery you want to be and what kind of customers you want to attract. I've done the same with mine, picked an elegant name to attract clients that want to feel like they made a sophisticated choice.
