About this project

Our mission: Raise $10,000 in just 43 days!

If we don't reach our goal, we get nothing, so every little bit helps.

$10,000 is just a fraction of what it takes to open a retail bakery. We are very close to opening now, and the money raised from this Kickstarter will help us to:

1) Pay for the continued costs of trying to open (fees, permits, etc)

2) Purchase inventory (from which to make you amazing things)

3) To buy the rest of our equipment (used, of course!).

Our project is the Sugar Circus. It is the merging of two of Austin's premier dessert companies; Sugar Tooth Bakery, and SugarPOP Sweet Shop.

Sugar Tooth Bakery (est. by Meghan Krasnoff in 2008) is an all vegan dessert company. We specialize in treats for those with (any and all) dietary restriction whether by choice, or due to food allergy or sensitivity. While these treats may lack butter and eggs, they are hardly lacking in flavor or texture, and will win over even the most skeptical of omnivores. 

SugarPOP Sweet Shop (est. by Belinda Espinoza in 2002) combines the arts of baking and design into their delicious masterpieces. From custom designed and expertly decorated cakes and couture cookies, to traditional apple pies, SugarPOP has it all. Exquisite desserts that will melt in your mouth, and the best buttercream you’ve ever had.

With your help and their combined talents, Belinda and Meghan will now be able to offer beautiful treats made from scratch either traditionally, or for those with dietary restrictions...all under the same roof.  We can't wait to see you at the Sugar Circus the most delicious show on earth!
