â€œIâ€™m opening a bakery!â€
â€œthatâ€™s great! What are you going to call it???â€
This was the reaction I got from EVERY single person I told the bakeryâ€™s name toâ€¦I guess thatâ€™s why people keep their baby names to themselvesâ€¦
Did I doubt myself? Sure I didâ€¦but my gut told me my whimsy little cakery should be called Yum Bunnies.
When I was a little girl I was a very picky eaterâ€¦always trying to satisfy my sweet tooth.Â To get me to eat my mother would call foods yum bunnies.Â I always remember her saying â€œmmmm! Yum Bunnies!â€ I still tend to prefer dessert, but I have learned to enjoy the savory side of life as well.
Her trickery workedâ€¦
At pastry school when I would have to label my projects I would always write Yum Bunnies.Â Classmates would ask what it meant and I would say â€œit means itâ€™s tasty!â€
To me Yum Bunnies has always meant something that is deliciousâ€¦so I just had to name my shop Yum Bunnies and since we just make cakeâ€¦Cakery instead of Bakery!
There were doubters but I think we have proven them wrong!
We now affectionately call it The YBCâ€¦and I donâ€™t regret a thing!
