My Story

Hello, there! My name is Hilary, also known as Ree. 

Thanks so much for stopping by my site!

Let me tell you a little about me... 

I am a 35 year old single mother of one from southeast Oklahoma. My days are spent homeschooling my 8 year old son and running a few different businesses from home. 

I started my baking journey in 2012 when I needed a cake for a baby shower I was throwing at work. I priced a few but we were on a serious budget so after watching a few YouTube videos I decided: "I can do that.." and I did!

I loved it so much that it quickly became my favorite hobby and within a year and after hundreds of YouTube videos, I was registering BakerRee as a legal business. 

My home bakery grew and word got around to the local donut shop owner who was trying to sell his business that I was doing well. He contact me and before I knew it I was signing the paperwork to turn BakerRee into BakerRee and Daylight Donuts, LLC! And exactly 2 weeks after signing that paperwork... I found out I was pregnant!

I was positive that my husband and I could do it all.

Have our first child and run our first business all at the same time? No problem! 

 

Wrong. It was HARD. And after giving it our all for 2 years we ultimately just could not keep up and had to sell our little donut shop and BakerRee moved back into my home. Also, at this time I chose to niche down to my favorite item... decorated sugar cookies. 

And the rest is history! 

As of now, I have been baking professionally on and off for over 10 years and perfecting my decorated sugar cookies for over 6 years. It has been a fun ride and I have learned so much along the way. 

There's no telling where this little business will go from here but I have a lot of plans and ideas! I hope you stick around to see it all unfold! 

Have a sweet day, 

- Ree
