Sugaree's Bakery has a retail store in the heart of charming downtown New Albany, Mississippi. What Mary Jennifer Russell started as a home-based business in 1997 now services a national mail order market and regional wholesale markets across the Southeast. Their heirloom Deep South recipes are made using traditional techniques with lots of high-quality butter, caramel icing cooked slowly in cast iron and meringue peaks that would make your grandmother proud. One taste and you will be transported back to a simpler time when baking was done at home with generations of family around the mixing bowl. Spreading the tradition of Southern hospitality across the nation, building community, and continuing to delight customers with time-tested recipes and methods are what Sugaree's is all about. Sugaree's embraces the role of being an ambassador for Mississippi and represents the state's creative culture across the nation at events in places like New York, Washington, D.C., Charleston, New Orleans, Atlanta, and Seaside, Florida. Sugaree's has been featured in Southern Living, The New York Times, Oprah Magazine, The Huffington Post, USA Today, The Local Palate, Saveur, The View, Taste of the South, Southern Lady, and The Washington Post.

What Makes Our Products Great?

Taste a Sugaree’s cake, and you will be instantly swept back to a time where sugar was carefully browned in a cast iron skillet until it was just the right shade of golden brown needed for a deeply delicious caramel icing. Where hot butter glazes were poured with a lavish hand over thick layers of coconut cake to drench every slice with pure, moist flavor. Where icings were carefully, expertly, slowly cooked on a hot stove top until they were silky smooth. That’s the way they always did it in the Deep South, and that is the way Sugaree’s Bakery, a small batch heritage bakery in Mississippi, does it today. It’s not a fast way. And it is not an easy way. But it is a way that infuses layers and layers of rich, complex, and deeply satisfying flavor in every glorious bite.
