About






Hi. I am Dodie. The creator of. The Bee's Knees Bakery & More... I have been baking and making sweet things ever since I married my best friend Tim 20+ years ago. My Amish born mother in law visited and seen a cake mix on the counter... she was not having her baby eating that... so one Christmas morning I received a Kitchen Aid and lessons with recipes... for the next several years she would share more and more...Mama Shirl was a great mother in law...

When I received the GOLDEN recipe of "Cream Puffs" I knew then she was proud! So over the next few years as a wife, mother and daughter I would feed them all.. My mother was the best to bake for.. she loved everything! My Mom Clementine gave me the persistence and strength to follow my dream.

I knew I wanted to serve my sweets to more people.. years later I was blessed to train for a short time with a great decorator of wedding and celebration cakes..and found I had a knack for it!! Put that with a couple of amazing business owners believing in my craft.. and my family for supporting me...

The Bee's Knees Bakery dream was born

P.S I still use that Kitchen Aid!
