Meet Your Dessert Creator

Hi! I'm Tanisha Melvin. AKA...the "Cookie Lady".  I love all things sweet, so if baking isn’t your thing and you want to wow your guests or loved ones with a unique experience, OR if you just need a personal pick me up, you're in the right place.

How It All Began

One day I was assigned the task of baking mini chocolate chip cookies for a work event. (I had never baked a cookie in my life.) I don't know what it is about a classic chocolate chip cookie, but folks went crazy over them, and I've been baking them ever since...tweaking the recipe all the way.

Many years later (after spending years in marketing and health care) with no prior run-ins with the law, I suddenly found myself falling down a rabbit hole in my late 30's with federal charges that could send me away for 10 years. By the grace of God, I served a little over 1 year. While serving time, I took a culinary course and received my ServSafe certification - rediscovering my love for bringing joy with desserts. One year later in 2019, I started Addictive Kravings, a licensed e-commerce bakery. 

How It All Began

The Bakery

Addictive Kravings is a small batch made licensed and insured cottage bakery. Everything you order is handcrafted by me and my team. We focus on desserts such as cookies and specialty cakes that look good but taste even better.

I believe all things in life are worth celebrating. I have been honored to have my story featured on ABC's Free Enterprise and in the Fayetteville Observer


Thank you for visiting our little place on the web. We hope that our gourmet cakes and confections will help your next party or event become a sweet success.
