I already have what I think is a good logo (raised fist with whisk, see attached PDF+AI) but it can be further developed if you have some good ideas. Or feel free to try something completely different. If you go with the raised fist, the main focus should be on the word "Sweetacus", finding a good combination of the logo and the word (they don't have to become one thing, but they need to look good together).
The colors are dark red (think dark cherry) and possibly dark brown (think dark chocolate).
I DO NOT want cutesy pictures of ice cream scoops, cakes, clouds etc. Chefs consider themselves artists and creatives, even rebels - i.e. battling against the big companies - so the tone should be disruptive, rebel, techno. Even the name Sweetacus is similar to Spartacus, the warrior who stood up against authorities.
If possible, the logo needs to be developed both vertically (logo above the name for the home page) and horizontally (logo left, word right, for the top of the web page).
