Meet Kristin Lewin of Sugar Dot Bake Shop

Today we’d like to introduce you to Kristin Lewin.

So, before we jump into specific questions about the business, why don’t you give us some details about you and your story.
Well, I always loved desserts… who doesn’t? I became seriously interested in baking when my son was graduating high school and heading off to college. It was then that I decided to enroll myself in a local community college and do their baking and pastry certification program. Prior to that, I had baked for many different occasions purely for the love and excitement it brought to family and friends celebrating.

My children both played water polo and my youngest was trying out for the national team which we needed to fundraise for. One of my friends that owned a local restaurant let me sell cupcakes in her place to raise the money that was required~ during that process, I was told how moist and delicious the cupcakes were and I was constantly having to bring more in… which was an awesome way to raise the money for USA Water Polo!

I also had a friend that was in the wedding business and she asked me to do desserts for some of her weddings, I was hesitant at first but then did one of my first weddings which happened to be for a couple that resides in San Diego, they got married in the Santa Cruz area. Many couples now plan their destination weddings or celebrations in a place that they don’t live near but love to visit or travel to.

Has it been a smooth road?
As a small start-up, it is hard getting your company name out to potential customers. I’ve had to learn internet marketing and social media to build my business. I am very fortunate that along the way I’ve met people that really love Sugar Dot Bake Shop desserts and recommended us to their friends. Word-of-mouth really does help for a small business.

So, as you know, we’re impressed with Sugar Dot Bake Shop – tell our readers more, for example, what you’re most proud of and what sets you apart from others.
Sugar Dot Bake Shop is a boutique bakeshop creating individual, romantic and delicious desserts. All of our clients are managed first hand as I want our customers to get the best experience and a fabulous dessert for their special occasion.

The ultimate way to set your wedding, birthday or corporate event apart is with Sugar Dot Bake Shop. A dessert buffet is both different and unexpected – it involves a touch of decorative magic and will have guests talking about it for years to come. We offer on-site services and stay for the duration of the event because we want the dessert table to look as good at the end as it did at the beginning. As far as I know, we are the only bake shop offering this service.

At Sugar Dot Bake Shop, we discuss with the client the overall theme, color, and feel of their event and come up with a dessert buffet selection and table design perfect for their venue and budget.

We make everything from scratch using only the freshest and highest quality ingredients to make the dessert the absolute best and most delicious. We avoid all chemical stabilizers, shortenings, and high fructose corn syrup because our clients deserve every ounce of luxury.

We specialize in small bite size desserts and do custom wedding and celebration cakes as well.

Let’s touch on your thoughts about our city – what do you like the most and least?
San Diego is such an amazing place with great beaches, restaurants, and local communities. I love going to Pacific Beach and for about ten years would go for the major holidays and stay at the Crystal Pier where we have so much fun and I really enjoy going to sleep with the sounds of the ocean.
