Would you buy from them?

Like Tree52Likes

There's children in the world named moniovaerithang and sexeena and I knew a girl named Sh*ttia(no lie).
These are names we should be worrying about.
I wouldn't care if my kid went to a party and had a Sweetgasm (ick!) cake. And I wouldn't think any differently of the parents. I'm pretty conservative in what I allow my kids to watch and read, but that wouldn't bother me in the least.

Who has time for all of that judgment?

probably the same parents who come in my job for bday parties and talk to the other parents while their children practically kill themselves climbing on crap they shouldn't be climbing on. Destroying property.


And then get mad at you when you tell their child to be careful, or please don't climb on that, please don't throw that. HOW DARE YOU TALK TO THEIR PRECIOUS ANGEL LIKE THAT.
My daughter turned 7 in January. I bought some party stuff from Sam's (fruit, mostly) and because they don't have bags, they put some of it in boxes for me. I never unboxed it went straight to the party. I stacked the boxes out of the way while I was setting up.

Anyone who thinks kids don't bother to read didn't have to answer the question, "Miss CGNYC, what are vitamins for mens prostate and sexual health" about fifteen times before she figured out where they were finding that particular phrase. Oops.

For the record, no parents were angry but none of them really stepped in to help me answer either. Cowards. Although, "ask your parents" is apparently a perfectly satisfactory answer if you're seven.

FTR, my almost 10 year old boy would probably run around saying "Sweetgasm" just because it sounds like a cool expletive to a tween boy. Kids.

I wonder why she picked that name... It is super corny.

when I did camps this kid came up to me and said "what does f*** mean?" I said after I had a transient ischemic attack, "A word you can't say". And that was it, and then I told his parents of course.


Who knows what his parents did, but they weren't upset or angry.


eta: I agree the name is corny indeed.
Sweetgasm is kind of a dumb name but it's not a dirty word (neither is orgasm for that matter). Even if the kids see it and repeat it, who's going to even know what they're saying? It's not a real word.
If they make a great cake, I'd buy it.

I would probably reevaluate my child's friendship with the kid who's parents are disgusted with you because you bought a cake from that place, they'll probably develop generational judgementalness anyway.

I think it would be a great name for an "adult" bakery (ie, sex themed) and even Ok for just a bakery that doesn't make a special point to market to kids.

But if they are going to market to kids (to parents of kids), they are tacky to use the same name. IMO, they should market the kids items under a different business name and just pay for different packaging and business cards (but still keep DBA Sweetgasm on the back end).

I was thinking more about marketing/consumer behavior and less about parenting when I started the thread...but the responses have been funny nevertheless.

Yeah, she gets the side-eye for that name for a bakery marketed towards families...

A high school classmate has a kid-friendly bakery called Crumby Art. I think that is so cute!

If I were searching for a cake and came across that name, I'd assume it was an adult-themed business, which means I probably wouldn't buy from them because it wouldn't be what I was looking for. If my task was to find an adult-themed cake and they came up on the search, I'd certainly look at what they had to offer.

It's just not a good choice for who they want their customers to be.

Kids are not always like the parents. From what I've seen it's usually the opposite.

But overall in this instance it seems extreme...

I must be the only one who didn't even think adult themed, in fact I didn't think twice about sweetgasm, and orgasm until I read other posts and then I was like...I see what you did there.

I think I would of caught on better to a sex themed cake shop if it was called Sexitime cake shop, Or Hot sexy Buns Bakery, Sextastic Cakes, S&M Cakes, Boners and Cakes, Cakes make your vulvas go whoa, Clitoral Stimulating Cakes, etc. Actually that should be a thread game, names for a sex themed cake shop.

Nars cosmetics, I guess desensitized me to non sexual things having gasm in them. I didn't think sex theme cakes at all.

Tho, admitedly, it is a stretch that a parent would see a Sweetgasm box at bday party and get mad.

But I remember my parents giving me crap about this one's house being jacked up and the other one's mom being dumb, on and on and on.

I can only imagine if they saw "Sweetgasm." LOL

For my parents, it wouldn't be so much they didn't want me to know what the word "orgasm" means as much as it was they would consider the parents uncouth.

I had a set of parents who decided my son wasn't fit to play with their kid after my son said the word "penis" as a kindergartener. Apparently, they thought I should have washed his mouth out with soap or something, because I just shrugged it off and then they they shunned him. Oh well...I think they were the deviants...because PENIS isn't a dirty word. Sweetgasm isn't a dirty word either. Neither is orgasm. Or prostate. People are kinda nuts...I'm not into filtering my cake choices because someone might go nuts about it.
this has me thinking of a situation that happened as a kid. My brother and I found a porno in the garage. Now, we were climbing on stuff and getting into things WAY THE **** UP THERE. It was a video tape that said Butterflies or something on it. We put it in and all the kids in the neighborhood got our first view at a porno. Two brothers that were there went home and somehow told their parents. Their parents called my parents and those kids never played at our house again. They were still friends with my brother, but they didn't play at our house again.

I wonder how my parents dealt with that. I think I might have to work through my embarrassment and ask them.

To be clear: the video was hidden well. My bro and I were just better and finding then my parents were at hiding.
