    spot on cakes

    There is a cafe named "Spot on Cakes".

    How does the name feel for a native speaker: cakes have been spotted or a spot for cakes or supreme quality cakes?

    Being "spot on" means you are right, correct.

    A "spot" is also a location, so it could mean the place for cakes.

    Cute name

    It's a play on words, as was explained above.
