Sugar Plum Vegan-Get To Know Us Better!

Sugar Plum Vegan has been providing the Sacramento, California area delightful vegan baked goods since 2009.  The owner, Melissa Sugar, began her bakeress adventure as a young girl in her grandmother's Ukrainian kitchen in Philadelphia.  Melissa gained professional experience at a French influenced Bakery where she learned the fine art of the tart, pies, cakes and cookies. 

Life took her out West to Los Angeles where her love for baking and her quest to "Do No Harm" to all beings was first materialized to the public. In 2004, Melissa started Jivana Vegan, a wholesale and farmers market bakery, in Los Angeles. This successful venture was well received by those looking for a healthier and cruelty free options that were very scarce at the time.

In 2009, Melissa started a family and moved to Sacramento where Sugar Plum Vegan was born.  She was a pioneer in bringing vegan and gluten free items to this area.  Now the market is dense with lots of vegan friendly and gluten free options and Sugar Plum Vegan continues to thrive. Melissa is always evolving her business by creating products that are new, fresh and exciting.  Our paleo line of cookies and brownies have taken Northern California by storm with more items to come in 2015.

Sugar Plum Vegan has worked with many non-profit organizations including Animal Place, PETA, Harvest Home Animal Sanctuary, Sacramento Buddhist Society, Food Not Bombs and Earth Save, to name a few.

Celebrities also love Melissa Sugar's creations: German Chocolate Cake for Forest Whitaker, a Carrot Cake Wedding Cake for Marilu Henner and Cookies and Treats for Stic Man and Mike FLo of Dead Prez and Alicia Silverstone and many more.
