Hello, thanks for stopping by! I am so happy that you are here and I hope you’ll find something useful to you on your baking journey. 

About Sweet Bytes

Sweet Bytes is evolving from a home bakery into a resource for enthusiastic bakers to level up their baking game! Here you can find resources for everything dessert, from learning to bake to cake decorating.  

Along the way, we’ll do some fun baking projects for holidays and special occasions. There are even some resources on starting a bakery in case you decide to sell your amazing desserts. 

My goal is to make Sweet Bytes an amazing resource for you! Please let me know what you’d like to see here and any questions you have.

About Me and Mine

I’m Mikel (like the boy’s name Michael), my official job title here at Sweet Bytes is Deliciousness Maker. I started calling myself that back when I started my little home bakery, the original Sweet Bytes. Back then, I was too afraid to call myself a baker since I didn’t go to school for baking.  Now I know that if you practice your craft and love it, your credentials don’t have to be framed. My hope is that I can share with you all the things you want to know so that you feel confident enough to give yourself a baking title too!

My enthusiasm for baking is focused on baking from scratch, using real food ingredients,  and making it look as amazing as it tastes. Our home bakery tagline was “Tastes Like Happy.” That’s still my goal for every recipe I develop and dessert share here.

I was born and raised in Oklahoma, where I live with my husband, kids, and a 140 lb big, stubborn, dog. Epic road trips, all the mountains, and visiting National Parks are my kind of vacations. I don’t really believe in T.M.I., I tend to be an open book. This brings up the library, which I think is the greatest thing since cheesecake.

My husband is Rene. People ask us if our names are mixed up all the time. I say it was just meant to be.  He’s been my sweetie pie for a long time. (22 years at the time I’m writing this!)

We were art school sweethearts. Awwwwww. He created this website and our branding, takes amazing photos, and handles the technical side of Sweet Bytes. I think I won the lottery with this guy! We make a great team!

Thanks for visiting! Let’s keep in touch!
