A code word to keep from saying bad language around her nieces and nephews is now a code name for a new business Ashley Garman is opening across from East High School.
Dilligaf Cupcakes is opening Friday to serve cupcakes and sandwiches at 2214 E. Douglas.
“It means, ‘Do I look like I give a crap?’ in proper language,” Garman says.
“We had to learn ways to talk … without using that kind of language, so we came up with a lot of acronyms for it,” she says of speaking politely in front of the children.
Never miss a local story.
“They were in the copying stage, so we had to make sure we used correct language around them.”
Garman says she believes she’ll have a unique take on cupcakes.
“We’re definitely focusing on making everything after video games,” she says of designs. “We are a big gamer family.”
Garman says she thinks she’ll have some unusual flavors, too, including cupcakes based on Mountain Dew and Amp, the energy drink.
Kameron Rich, Krista Lowry and Kristin Stang of J.P. Weigand & Sons handled the deal for the 1,800-square-foot space.
Dilligaf will be open every day but Sunday from about 7 a.m. until everything is sold, Garman says.
“Or 5 o’clock,” she says. “Whichever comes first.”
