If you will kindly turn your attention to my blog....

You thought I forgot didn't you!?  Well I didn't.  I'm just a master procrastinator and this brought back my fondest college memories (much to my mother's chagrin, right mom?)

And much to what I perceive will be the disappointment of many, no I am not pregnant.  But that doesn’t mean you should stop reading because I have a job for you!  I will shamelessly admit that my Facebook post was a little stunt to get people to come to my blog.  Why you may ask?  Because I need business for my new business! “New business??!!” I hear you incredulously inquire.

Yes I am starting a business.

A cake ball business to be precise.

As you can tell from my previous post I love cake balls. A lot. They are so much fun to make and decorate!  Every time I make them more and more people tell me they would pay me to make some for a party or get together. Which got me thinking…maybe I should start a business that caters cake balls?  I decided to commit my idea to prayer.  I began to pray that God would show me which way I should go, whether I should move forward or wait, and that He would open doors for me if I were to proceed. 

After several weeks went by amazingly doors began flying open presenting me with unique opportunities. These particular doors are ones I never would have come across on my own.  So I began preparing a list of flavors and prices and started my journey!  My flavors are as follows:

  • Funfetti
  • Strawberry Shortcake
  • Vanilla Chai
  • Pink Lemonade
  • Cherry Cordial
  • Coffee Toffee
  • Banana Split
  • Double Fudge Delight
  • Cheescake (Strawberry, Cherry, or Chocolate)
  • Grasshopper
  • Orange Sherbet
  • Pumpkin Spice
  • Lemon Meringue
I'm still working on the price aspect but that should be coming soon.  On to the part which requires your assistance.  Unfortunately my creativity in cake balls does not extend to naming things.  That's where you come in.  I need a name for my new business.  Therefore I propose a competition.  I would like any and all of you to submit your name along with a name for my business to me via email (  Options submitted as a comment on FB or this blog will not be considered, but that doesn't mean you can't leave general comments :-)

I know, I know, you're all wondering what the prize will be for this little competition.  Besides recognition on my internationally read blog (I have visitors from Canada, Taiwan, and Singapore, so says my ClustrMap, no that's not a typo, it's really called ClustrMap) I will provide one event of your choice with cake balls (any flavor and design) for free.  I do have one small rule.  Eventually I would like to extend my business beyond cake balls so please try to refrain from using the word cake balls in the title unless it was being used in conjunction with something else.  For example Cake Balls & More.  Also, using my name in business name is acceptable but not required.

Alright, have at it.  I will officially close the competition one week from today at which point the suggestions will be perused by myself and my esteemed panel of judges to choose a delightful name.  Once I have a name I will be able to come up with some more marketing type stuff.

And for those of you who persevered to the end I apologize that my announcement wasn't as exciting as you might have hoped...  I'll have "that other" announcement to make some day, God willing :-)


  1. I'm sorry, I have no idea on the business name [see my blog name and etsy shop name for examples of my "creativity" in naming things!].

    I hope you have great success in your new business!!!

  2. Can't wait to see your business take off!!! Hmmmmm, could you set up an etsy store to sell them on? :) Just think, you could ship them all over the world!!

    I liked the last phrase in your post, and will be so happy and excited for you when I see that news, in God's timing!!!!!

    You know, I've never actually had a cake ball... I don't think I ate anything at my wedding, although, it all looked good! One day, I'll try yours :)
