About Mommas Sugar Shack
My name is Melinda Barrientos and I am the Owner, Manager and Head Baker of Momma’s Sugar Shack. I am married to my best friend, business partner, creative design and research specialist, Paul. I have lived in Temecula since the late 1970’s and have two amazing children. For me, baking has been a family tradition from several generations past. I continue this tradition with my children, as we bake and decorate as family, especially around the holidays. Many of our recipes are family secrets and traditional treats that have been passed on. Others have been developed over the years and/or acquired from mentors in the baking and pastry industry. I have taken a variety of classes/courses to refine my skills, as I am always working on personal and professional growth. I operate out of a commercial kitchen. We DO NOT have any health department restrictions on ingredients like "licensed home bakers" do.
How Our Company Got Started
I was a hobby baker for the majority of my life. I would make and bake treats for my kids’ activities, work, and school events, etc. My son played football during his high school years and our home was always open to his friends and teammates. These guys were always hungry, which gave me the perfect opportunity to tweak and perfect recipes, as I had plenty of mouths to feed. This carried on with my daughter, as well. Love and food made our house feel like home to many and I acquired the nickname “Momma”. When I decided to turn my passion into my business, this nickname inspired the business name, “Momma’s Sugar Shack”.
