Sweet option

There seems to be a craze going around the country... from Nashville to San Diego. A few friends and I want to jump on the cupcake craze wagon. Yes, we want to be one of those crazy bakers. So in order to get this idea going, we are testing cupcake recipes out on folks to find the best ones-best flavor, best texture, best frosting, etc. Tonight, I made the strawberry shortcake cupcakes. I think they look nice. I will be taking them to work tomorrow to be tested by multiple subjects(I love the built in system:). It's my first attempt and making a "pretty" cupcake, so they still require some work. But maybe in the next year, you won't be hearing about "GiGi's" anymore (though still really good), you'll hear about an as-yet-unnamed bakery here in San Diego. We hope to get some great recipes finalized, along with a name, and start hitting up the Farmer's Market circuit down here to see if we can sell anything.

So, if you can think of a greatly creative name, that is most appreciated:) We have a list of some we like, but we're looking for something that would just roll off the tongue or at least sound tasty enough that you HAVE to go there to partake of the tasty confections!

Wow Lisa! Those cupcakes look scrumptious! I wish I could be a taste tester for you and I don't usually like cake/cupcakes type treats, but those might just change my mind!
