Making sweet treats since 2019

…in addition to putting my public health degree to use for a local, community-focused nonprofit

Hi! I’m Sarah Hipp. Baker, adventure enthusiast, and founder of hippbakes. Living (and baking) it up in Kailua, Oahu. When I’m not creating in the kitchen, you can find me hiking, paddling, or relaxing in a hammock. I’m all about that epic Hawai'i beauty. Prior to the pandemic, you might also call me a travel junkie.


I’ve nurtured a passion for baking for as long as I can remember. Growing up, baking was a family affair and I was famous for my “mixes” – combinations of random spices, flour, and sugar which I pretended was scrumptious cake batter. Fast forward to the current pandemic and I’ve found myself taking the leap to make my dream of a baking business a reality. Thankfully I’ve honed some skills since those early days and am so proud to offer you my much-improved tasty treats and bakes. Whether you're celebrating a birthday, special occasion, or just looking to satisfy your own sweet tooth, let me bake some love and aloha into something spectacular for you!

something embarrasing about myself

I cried when I turned 11 and my letter from Hogwarts didn’t arrive. Did I mention I’m a massive Harry Potter fan?

Getting dirty out in nature.

new favorite quarantine activity

If I could live anywhere in the world

Checking the fridge to ensure I have, at minimum, 10 lbs of butter at all times.

In a castle in Scotland…again with the Harry Potter.
