Sugar Girl is a small, local, family run baking company owned by husband and wife Bill and Marin Turner. Marin is the Baker/"Head of Creativity" and Bill is the "Chief Tasting Officer". We have a true passion for all things sweet and we love to share that with our customers. We have been in business for the past 18 months operating out of the corner of a very cramped local restaurant kitchen in Sandpoint, Idaho. Now we have a place to call our very own.

There is joy in presenting people with food that makes them smile and when it comes to dessert, those smiles are amplified. As a baker, I have always craved bold flavors with amazing textures and love food that takes us in new directions. Most of all, we believe that “yummy” is not just an adjective, it’s a feeling and that is how we want people to feel when they bite into a Sugar Girl creation. Whether its bringing you back to a childhood memory or taking your taste buds someplace they’ve never been, we are glad to take you there.  We are a small company and we source local, fresh ingredients whenever possible. This allows us to bring seasonality to our treats and really have fun with our flavors. Some of our most popular items include the Bacon me Crazy: maple buttercream sandwiched between two giant bacon chocolate chip cookies, the Captain Picard: an eclair with earl grey infused pastry cream and topped with an orange chocolate ganache, and the Up in Smoke: a rich dark chocolate brownie with a pretzel graham cracker crust and topped with caramel and applewood smoked sea salt. On top of all this, we have over 465 flavors of cupcake that have been developed in our tiny test kitchen. We even have a special super fantastic Vegan line of baked goods.

And Sugar Girl always offers a 10% discount to military and service personnel.


To raise $4000 to purchase much needed equipment and finish renovations in our new home. We will be serving a variety of treats from our kitchen including cupcakes, cookies, cheesecakes, brownies, fair trade organic coffee, boba tea, and more!


If our project is funded, we will be able to purchase the remaining equipment necessary to make our dream come true as well as finish the bit of plumming that needs to be changed and add some new counters. We will post pictures of our progress online so that all of our backers can see our kitchen take shape.  In addition to bringing our vision of sweetness to the people, we're really interested in building a small business that can help build a stronger community. Our long term plans include an internship each year for 1-2 high school students from the area that are interested in baking or want hands-on experience in how a small business is run.

We are offering some wonderful incentives! Everything from our amazing cupcakes, limited edition t-shirts, to a special order worth up to $500. But truly best of all, besides a place in our hearts forever, all backers of Sugar Girl will have their name added to a plaque and placed on the wall in the bake shop for all to see their kindness.

We are aware that not everyone can donate money, but there are still ways that you can help:

Step one: Tell everyone. Your mom, brother, sister, aunt, uncle, neighbor's cousin's roomate's first grade teacher. Just get the word out!

Step two: Make the trip over to our facebook page and "Like" us. and then refer back to step one!

Thats it! Thank you for reading our proposal and thank you in advance for your support!!

(We are sorry, but we cannot ship food out of the country at this time.)
