About Us | Almost Heaven Bakery OBX


Almost heaven Bakery OBX is locally owned and located in Nags Head, North Carolina. The owner of the bakery is Melinda Givens with the help of her daughter Chloe, a mother and daughter duo. The bakery was started officially in 2015, but Melinda has been baking cakes since about 2008. She is self-taught and it all started when a local bakery wasn't able to do her daughters birthday cake, so she decided to give it a try herself and it actually turned out pretty great. After this she decided to continue doing cakes and other desserts for her family. She then began to branch off doing birthday cakes for friends, and even her first wedding cake for a friend at church. She found her true passion and love not only for baking and decorating, but making someone's wedding day even more special. After this she continued trying and learning new techniques. Melinda and her family eventually moved to North Carolina in 2013, and she decided to continue baking. Her daughter Chloe also took interest in decorating, and continues to help her mom with the bakery.  Melinda and Chloe specialize in the creation of custom wedding cakes, grooms cakes, birthday cakes, all occasion cakes, pies, cupcakes, pastries and more. 

"We love being able to bake for so many and spread joy through our baking. We have met so many amazing people through the bakery, especially from doing weddings. We still talk to several of the brides and grooms and have made many new friendships. For us the best thing about owning the bakery is when your cake or desserts become a tradition; each year when they are on vacation they return for their favorite cake." - Melinda and Chloe
