I realize I was quite vague in my last post about what my idea entailed, so I thought I would elaborate for you now. Obviously from the name of this blog, I've chosen babee cakes as the name of my business. Why all lower case letters and two e's at the end instead of a y? Because nobody ever accused me of being normal, and I like it that way! I thought this name for the business would be good to indicate the notion that cupcakes are "baby" cakes. This, in turn, led me to a slogan. "Good cake comes in small packages". Then I started thinking that babee cakes sounded like it could have been a slang term for women in the 40's and 50's. That's when a giant light bulb went of in my head. I'm a bit vintage obsessed as it is and I thought it would be fun to name each flavor after an actress or movie character from the 40's and 50's.
I drew up (ahem...traced from some of my cupcake photos) a couple logo samples, but I'm not sure I love them. Then, there's the issue of adding color and getting them scanned into the computer. Lucky for me I have a VERY talented friend (the insanely talented lady responsible for the print above) that has offered to design my logo! Just about every room of my house has one of her prints hanging on the wall. I can only hope that one day I'll be able to decorate the walls of my store front with some of her art!
So, what happens next? I get laid off from my job, present the idea to the career counselor that was provided to me (who just so happens to think it's a FAB idea), start doing my homework as to what all I need to get this started as a cupcake catering business, begin writing a business plan and (the best part) keep recipe testing!!!
