Sugarjones » About Us


Rockford’s first dessert bakery!

As a child growing up on the northwest side of Rockford, Kathryn would help her mother in the kitchen with all sorts of things. She grew up loving to cook and bake. So much so that her dream was to go to cooking school.

Fast forward to 2009. Kathryn started a small catering company that quickly turned into a baking company due to overwhelming requests for cakes & cupcakes. That meant it was time to work on recipes!

Kathryn started by creating a few great base cake recipes, and then set out to create a frosting recipe that was creamy, light, had less sugar, lots of butter and is smooth as silk. After about 9 months, and dozens of pounds of butter, she had it!! Sugarjones signature buttercream was born. ‘Cue angels singing’

Kathyrn easily taught herself how to decorate cakes, cupcakes and cookies. It was like second nature to her. She knew she had to come up with a clever, memorable, and fun name for the bakery business. What an ordeal!! But, one day after lots of tries she wrote down Sugarjones (sugar+jones=sugar craving) and in December of 2011 her first, little (and we mean little!!) shop on Rural Street was opened!

After 12 years of growth, Kathryn moved into the Riverside location which has been made into the sole location where you can find all her amazing sweet treats baked fresh daily. 

The focus for Sugarjones is, and will always be, to bring delicious desserts to the Rockford area delivered with exceptional customer service all while giving back to our wonderful community who has supported us throughout the years.

Thank you for satisfying your “jones” with us! Sugarjones loves and appreciates our sweet Rockford area family. Stop in and see why we truly do make the world a better place, one cupcake at a time.
