your go-to gal for all things sugar



Cat lady.

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 owner of Hippbakes living (and baking) it up in Kailua, Oʻahu. I’m the one-woman show behind the biz who runs it all. When I’m not creating in the kitchen you can find me hiking, paddling, swimming, or relaxing in a hammock.

I've nurtured a passion for baking for as long as I can remember. Growing up, baking was a family affair and I love how it brought everyone together. Fast forward to 2020 and I found myself taking the leap to make my dream of my own baking business a reality. Thankfully I’ve honed my skills since those early days and am proud to offer custom buttercream cakes and cupcakes for couples tying the knot. Whether you’re looking for an elegant, petite cake or an entire dessert spread for your wedding, let me bake some love and aloha into something spectacular for you.

A bit about me

On a sunny day you’ll find me

favorite flavor (currently)

In the ocean or on top of the mountains

Cinnamon and cookie butter

latest obsession

something embarrasing about myself

I cried when I turned 11 and my letter from Hogwarts didn’t arrive. Tragic.

Puzzles and whiskey! Not necessarily in that order.


If I could live anywhere in the world

Checking the fridge to ensure I have, at minimum, 20 lbs of butter at all times.

Hawaiʻi. It's my ultimate happy place.
