meet reine bayoc

Reine Bayoc is a maker of delicious things… vegetarian food and desserts are just two of the many. She was born in McKenzie, Tennessee, and grew up in Los Angeles and St. Louis with three brothers, her father, and her mother.

After studying abroad in Lyon, France, where Reine solidified her love of desserts, she graduated from Saint Louis University with degrees in English Literature and French.

After working a few cubicle jobs—while coming home to bake whatever her heart desired, Reine decided to take a shot at the dream of owning and operating a small bakeshop. In December 2008, she opened SweetArt Bakeshop and Art Studio with her husband Cbabi Bayoc.

SweetArt is STILL open and thriving (yay!), and Reine is currently implementing big plans for SweetArt’s bright future.

Shout out to @foxriverdairy for having the #finest cheese choices and for working with me for over 10 years now...all the way back when I was looking for a kitchen to work in. Special thanks to Nicole Scott for allowing us the opportunity to create deliciousness for her event. The Jerk #vegan Chik'n Pizzette with BBQ Mango sauce, mozzarella cheese and a touch of cilantro seemed to be the #standout...and rightfully so. Wish I'd gotten a great picture, but you will see it in the shop soon😉 As always, the SweetArt crew was fantastic! Thank you @mrsdees, Soda, Bre, Britine, Jakiya, Moon, Ronald and a borrowed Brittany from @thesocialaffairstl (Thank you Kelly Spencer!) #sweetartstlouis #loveandmagic #elamorylamagia

Happy birthday to my youngest sonshine, Birago!!!! Heart of gold and SUCH personality! It took Birago forever to speak because his big sister and brother would not let him😂 They would say, "What do you need, baby brother? Show me." I had to tell them to call him by his name before he started to think it was Baby Brother💫 My little #buddha baby...my actor (I almost posted photos from the recent week you were channeling #Tupac😂) This kid is #loveandmagic. Welcome to 12! We love you so much ❤ #pizzafordinner #donutsforbreakfast #itsyabirthday #blackboyjoy #sweetartstlouis
