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.
Happy Father's Day to all the great dads out in the world and to @cbabi
Thanks for being present from day one in our children's lives...thanks for being the main driver's ed teacher because I do not have the nerves for it😂, and thanks for creating an open relationship with each child where they can come to you for anything.
Shout out to my brothers @maine_event75
and my eldest brother who doesn't do social media cause he's the smartest, Cedric José) for all being like a dad to me in some way. And to my dad, Ellis.

For staff bonding, Charles suggested the crew take a Trap Yoga class with the sensational Nikole Brown (@grumpusbrown).
This morning only 33% of the SweetArt crew showed up😂 But earlier in the week everyone was all, "Yeah, that sounds great! I'm in." Where were y'all at though?😑 😂 Y'all missed @mrsdees
calling on Jesus😂
Thank you, Nikole, for the perfect way to start a Sunday! We missed you Ashely, Lena, Renee, Yaman, Ivette, Kendall, Barbara, Britine, and Hanna😂
