A Sweet, Fingerlicking Good Contest

If you've read my blog for very long you know that I love to bake! I hate to cook, but love to bake. Cupcakes, cookies, anything sweet! I have used my baking skills for two of our adoption fundraisers and it has payed off. We raised about $1,000 selling Africa shaped sugar cookies when we first started fundraising. They were a huge hit! But I must admit I was pretty sick of being up to my eyeballs in cookie dough.
Around Valentine's Day I sold cupcakes and they were pretty popular too (and much easier than Africa cookies).
For a while now I have wanted to take my baking to the next level. I would like to start a small baking business to earn a little extra cash to help fund the last $8,000 we need for our adoption. I would also like to establish the business so that when we do bring our kids home I can continue to bake to help contribute to the family income.
Here's the problem....I need a fun and creative name for this baking business and I need YOUR creative juices!
So I think we should have a contest! Leave a comment and tell me what you think I should name my business. The person with the most creative idea will win a prize (I have no clue what the prize will be! I haven't gotten to that part yet, but it will be worth your while!). Here's a hint...I would love to think of a name that includes "Red Velvet" because Red Velvet cupcakes are my all time favorite sweet treat - and I make a pretty mean home made Red Velvet cake and frosting. (my grandmother's recipe).
So leave me a comment, get creative and I will strain my brain for a fun prize.
Also, will you help spread the word about my baking business? Here are photos of a few sweet treats that I've made in the past - my recipe box is full of many more that can satisfy your sweet tooth.

Chocolate Peanut Butter Banana Cupcakes!

 Sugar Free Chocolate Chip Cookies - they turned out super yummy!

Chocolate Raspberry Cupcakes


  1. How about something in Amharic? Or Oromo, Sidama or whatever dialect you think your future cuties might speak? "Bete" means home and "Sekar" means sugar (at least according to The Google :-). Or BabyCakes? Ok, maybe that's a little too much.
    The peanut butter cup topped cupcakes look incredible.

  2. red velvet baby, red velvet cuties, red velvet angel, red velvet honey, red velvet girl.
    Ok thats all I got for now. LOL
