What is in a Name?

Back in May of 2013 I decided that If I was going all the way with this cake thing then I needed something better for a name than "I Make Cakes". Not that that was bad... but I wanted to make a business card, and labels for cake boxes. So as we all do now days, I turned to Facebook for ideas and held a contest, the winner receiving a free cake.

Some of the great suggestions I got:

Cranky Cakes
Custom Cakes
Coo-Coo Cakes
Creative Cakes
Crazy Cakes
Get Caked
Cake or Death

In the end the name that was chosen was DeLizious Cakes. The name suggestion came from my cousin-in-law Rodd. 

Do you see how great that is? It has my name in it. I needed a logo though, and the above picture was too much and I needed simpler for my tastes. After some trial and error I finally decided on the current logo.

I love it, and think that the simpleness of it makes a statement. And thus the current incarnation of my caking was created. 
Rodd did win a cake. It happened to he his birthday so I got his preference of theme, and went with it. The cake turned out pretty simple, but I really like them that way. 

I completed the following cake on May 17, 2013.

I sadly forget what flavor the cake itself was. I'm thinking that it was chocolate. The theme of choice was Harry Potter. I decided to go with the Gryffindor Quidditch theme. 


It turned out great, and I'm pretty sure Harry would have approved.
