Ok, I've been decorating cakes for 3 months now (yes I'm a newbie/junior member icon_biggrin.gif icon_biggrin.gif ) but I must say that I've found something that I can be really good at. I have always been artistic, but my interest in actual 'art' isn't pretty high at all, and I have a short attention span! I almost quit this craft after my struggle with the Wilton rose in course one, but I'm proud to say that I stuck it out, and now my roses look SOOOOOO much better......ok...umm...I'm getting away from the point! icon_redface.gif (You guys are so easy to talk to) icon_wink.gif

POINT BLANK.....I need help with a name! I know it will be a while before I turn this into a business, but I feel that naming it pushes me to excel. So, I have narrowed it down to 2 names..please give me some feedback and vote for your fav!!!....and thanks

1. Say Grace Cakes - (no slogan yet)
FYI-my grandmother's name was Grace & I thought it was cool to incorporate it with 'saying grace'

2. The Cake Genie - Bake A Wish


BTW...my name is Chaunte (pronounced Shon-tay) if you have any other ideas... icon_rolleyes.gif

I like the name Grace, but The Cake Genie sounds good to me. It makes me think you can take nothing, and turn it into something beautiful.

IMO, if you chose "Say Grace Cakes" you may offend potential non-religious customers without meaning to, and lose business before you get it.

Say Grace is cute but I am more likely to pick up the phone and call the Cake Genie.

I think it's neat that you want to include your Grandmothers name in your business. That being said though, I think The Cake Genie is a real attention getter and would be so cool for your biz! Good luck with whatever you decide.

Cake Genie for sure. I love the "Bake a wish". I agree that Say Grace is sweet but that it might limit your customer base for religious reasons. Silly, but true.

Baking wishes

Bake a wish sounds a little chopped or incomplete to me.
