I am new to this "Cake Central" and I must admit I'm addicted!!! I am going to start up a cake business - I have taken all the Wilton courses and now I want to go out and start on my own.
I am thinking of a name and I think I would like to incorporate my name in it. My name is Mary. So I was kind of thinking something like:
Mary's Custom cakes
MC Cakes (My first and last name)
Some other names that came to me was:
Bake That Cake
So as you can see I am not very innovative with making up names! Lol! Any help from my fellow Cake Centrals would be very much appreciated.
Your bakery name is a very personal thing. I have limited advice:
1. Be sure you name your bakery something you will be proud to say out loud a lot! "Hi I'm Mary from Bakery Name" if it's long or rhymes and you feel silly saying it out loud, don't use it.
2. Be clear, Jack's Landscaping, Pacific Fabrics, Outdoor Depot, you know what they sell/do. I like both the first choices because you are Mary and you sell cake.
As a person who changed my bakery name once because I had a silly name I was embarrassed to say to people, I say choose wisely, changing your name is more difficult than picking the right one to start with.
Thanks for your advice - very helpful!
APerhaps linking you business name to you lactation. A park or street . It has the advantage of tying you into the community you serve too.
i am one of the world's worst at spelling and typing and grammar but this typo is cracking me up bad--
i think we need to re-think advising her to link her business to her lactation--
gotta love those auto text things
AOmg how embarrassing lol I hate predictive text functions. Still at least it brought a smile ;)
If you're doing other things besides cakes - cupcakes - cookies - bars - cake pops, etc. you could call yourself Sweet Mary's Sweets. Or if that's too embarrassing to say, just Mary's Cakes & Sweets or Proud Mary's Cakes. Or Cake Art by Mary. It really has to come from you and speak to your heart.
AThank you all for your help. Get my thinking cap on now lol ;-)
