Fine, I'll do it myself.

Okay, so no one wants to help me come up with a name. That's okay, now I don't have to give anyone cookies! I came up with one all by myself, and I think I like it a lot.

"There's No Cake Like Home"

Chris is helping me make a logo, which is slow going because he knows what he thinks it should look like, and I know what I think it shouldn't look like, but I have no idea what I DO want it to look like. He's tinkered with it so that it's pretty good but I think it's still missing something. I tried to put it up here but it's still a pdf and so it doesn't like it. I'll get it up here soon.

I also found out yesterday that the week after we arrive there's a festival called the Taste of Reynoldsburg, and they're going to have tons of booths and advertisement and stuff. Like an Arts Festival of food. I am so excited about this, because there's all kinds of advertisement involved and it will have my business name on it, flyers and signs and everything. People will get to sample my stuff and PAY for it! You can't give anything away for free, everything has to be $1-3, so I'm trying to plan what I'm going to make and how much to charge. Last year 5000 people came to this festival, and while I don't want to end up with boxes of uneaten cookies, I can't run out in the middle!

I'm so excited about this--what a great way to start out my little business!

I know I haven't submitted a suggestion, but isn't that too long for a catchy title? Or will people be able to remember it? Will it fit on a business card?

Do you have to have a buisness license to be in the festival?

Sounds like fun. Good luck?

Sorry I would have submitted an idea if I could come up with one.

Allison Hill said...

well, Mother, if you don't like what I came up with, how about suggesting something else? I have no idea and all Chris came up with is "Cuttin' Muffins" which is only funny if you get the joke and if you DO get the joke you wouldn't want to eat them.

pwells said...

I didn't say I didn't like it. I do. I just worried about those questions I asked. And if I were talented I'd have thought of something myself. You guys are the creative ones!

Yeah, so it turns out Paul Simon has a lot of really awesome ones for this. 50 Ways to Eat Your Cake? It's almost too easy.

I really like "Puff the Magic Brownie" and "Live and Let Cake". Although my favorite is "Will you still Love Cake Tomorrow" but I think that leaves a negative aftertaste.

Allison Hill said...

You people!

I asked for help and you give me Paul Simon. Hilarious though!

I would totally buy a cake from A Cake Named Desire. And while I probably wouldn't buy a cake from Cake of a Lesser God, I'd definitely visit their website.

Also: I thought that your randomly-generated word verification thingy was asking me to write a dirty word, but it turned out one of the O's was actually a Q. So I'll it you off this time, but let's keep it clean in the future.

Which isn't just me being weird, it means cupcakes. And it's faeries. So I like it.

I think I'm going to make something around Halloween and call it Cake of the Spiderwoman.
