I found Almost Heaven on here over a month ago. I was looking for someone who could make some cupcakes for my daughter’s first birthday. We are from Colorado but would be on an OBX vacation during her birthday. I sent the owner a message with some examples of what I was looking for, she recommended a couple flavors to choose from, and went with it. We were flying in the day before the birthday when the cupcakes were to be picked up so I didn’t even see them till late that night after family picked them up and they were beyond my expectations. They were absolutely perfect, so cute, and the flavor (key lime crunch) was so tasty! My daughter loved hers and they were a big hit. I highly recommend them! -Caitlin Edwards

Melinda made 125 cupcakes for our wedding in four flavors, and they were amazing! We only had 80 people and they were all gone by the next day. They were some of the best cupcakes I've ever had. I would definitely recommend her for your wedding! She's super easy to work with. -Robin Foreman

Melinda did an amazing job on our wedding cakes! We went with the key lime and chocolate cake with chocolate buttercream, chips and mousse and they were both a hit! Thank you for the great work! -Lexi Weber Smith

Melinda made us the most beautiful wedding cake and was so prompt in replying and with delivery and set up! Not only did our cake look gorgeous and exactly how I wanted it, but all of my guests, including my very picky family, LOVED each of the layers (different flavors)! They were sad to be going back to VA leaving this wonderful bakery behind in the OBX. We definitely want to try more cake and other goodies from Almost Heaven Bakery on our next visit! I was one very happy and satisfied bride! Thank you, Melinda. - Desiree Garcia

We just held our wedding in Nags Head last weekend and had Melinda make our cake. It was a hit and everyone raved about how great the cake was. We loved the design and the flavor of the cake and recommend any couple getting married to get their cake made by Almost Heaven Bakery!! - Hannah Davis Ramsey

Our wedding cake was perfect. Due to us living in NY and planning a wedding in NC we did not try the cake prior to ordering.. and i would definitely do it again.. the key lime crunch was the best wedding cake ever. It turned out absolutely amazing, everyone loved it. Thank you so much!- Jamie Lee

I ordered a Scooby Doo almond cake for my daughter's 3rd birthday while vacationing in the area and Almost Heaven Bakery did not disappoint! The cake was so cute and everyone raved about how delicious it was. The price was very reasonable too. The "icing on the cake", finding out the talented owner/baker is a fellow Mountaineer 😊 Thank You, again! - Jay Panuelo Selbe

We had a 50th anniversary celebration in the Outer Banks for my parents while we were vacationing there a week ago. I had called Almost Heaven Bakery OBX a few weeks prior and had them give me some prices on some different cakes and they were quick to respond, great with their pricing, and they even were willing to deliver! The day of the event arrived and this bakery delivered a DELICIOUS and beautiful cake---exactly what I had ordered and we were all thrilled! The cake was moist, and delicious and we couldn't have been more pleased! We would absolutely recommend this shoppe to others who are looking for a special treat for a celebration while in the OBX. Thanks again, Almost Heaven, for helping us celebrate! - Suzanne Baylor Heckathorne

At the last minute, I decided to get my daughter a special cake for her birthday, and Almost Heaven rose to the challenge!! With practically no advance notice and an oven on the fritz, they created a beautiful cake...complete with fondant camera and film (I had asked for a photography theme but honestly wasn't expecting them to be able to do that in such a small time frame) I highly recommend these two ladies and am thrilled to be able to shop at such a wonderful local bakery!!! - Debra Hofmann Halahurich

Melinda made my cake and cupcakes for my wedding, and everyone RAVED about them! We had almond with raspberry filling, and they were absolutely the best cake and cupcakes I have ever had. Thank you so much for bringing my vision to life. I can't recommend you enough! - Lacey House Fournier

The name, Almost Heaven, is a bit of a misnomer because the cake Melinda made for my fiancé's birthday was absolutely heavenly! Not only was the cake beautifully decorated but it tasted amazing! We recommend her and will definitely use her again in the future. - Kate McKenzie-Veal

Almost Heaven made our wedding cake. Not only did it look wonderful (a lovely square 3-layer cake, red and white, elegant for the relatives but with a TARDIS crashed into the side [all you fellow Whovians, you know you want one!]), it was so delicious I just couldn't believe it. We went with a lemon cake with raspberry, and it was rich, moist, and drool-worthy. My parents also ordered us a grooms cake for the rehearsal dinner, a lovely TARDIS, and it came out fantastic. All of our friends were impressed--and then they tasted it and fell in love. Melinda (and her daughter!) did such a great job, helping us bring our vision to life while making possibly one of the best cakes I've ever tasted. Boy did it make my wedding feel special! Thanks so much! - Becky Jou

We cannot express how amazing Melinda was and her desserts are!!! Everyone is still RAVING about her desserts from our wedding!! All I wanted was cupcakes and pies for our wedding and then we added cakes as well because Melinda was SO accommodating!!! You want something created?! Just ask!! Tasting?! Just ask!! She made my husband an American Pie made of blueberries and cherries with the American Flag baked into it since he is a Marine!! They all were beyond perfection!!!!! She deserves to bake for every wedding in the OBX!!! - Cathy Marie Long

I ordered a small wedding cake 4 hours before our ceremony. They had it done with time to spare. Not only was it beautiful but it was also the most deliciously moist cake I have ever eaten. Thank you so much!! - Matt Elyes
