A Family Story

Meet my dad, Rickson, my partner in crime

A love letter to my dad

"Inspired by experiences caring for my elderly father, I started Sun Cakes to develop nutritious snacks that support healthy adults through the process of aging." - Rénel Sun, Founder


My dad had just bought a convertible and was looking forward to early retirement. A few years later at the age of 58, he was diagnosed with Lewy body dementia. As friends and family learned how to be there for him through his cognitive and physical decline, we found that the foods meant to support older folks were really lacking the care and attention that could lead to innovation, and more joy. At grocery stores, we would comb through the aisles looking for snacks that had substantial nutrition profiles, enjoyable textures and user-friendly packaging that promoted agency and dignity. Nothing was truly worthy of bringing back home.

Better nutrition for every body

Currently, many ready-made snacks consumed by older adults are either too bad-for-you or too bad-tasting, and food for children or end of life nutrition. We had to create a better middle ground, and that’s why we started Sun Cakes.


We're done with cardboard-tasting protein cookies, teeth-sticking energy bars, sugary cakes, and liquified vitamin shakes. It's time to eat luxurious treats with targeted nutrition to upgrade your lifestyle. Eating well is our first line of defense in maintaining a healthy, long, high quality of life, and Sun Cakes is here to help make that a joyous, colorful journey, every step of the way.
