Well hello there, Sunshine!

I am Melanie McBride, the proud owner of 'Oh, For Heaven Cakes!' Keri Lainheart (the previous owner) and I have been dear friends for decades.  We even worked together in Las Vegas when we both lived there.  When Keri approached me about buying this business, I felt honored that she hand-picked me, and it was the perfect time for me!

I was raised on a dairy farm in Meridian, then moved around a lot!  I'm so happy to be back in the Treasure Valley.  

I've started and ran a successful Wedding Cake business in Napa, California when I lived there. I'm so happy to be doing what I love again!


I have 3 awesome kids.  My oldest is married, lives here in Boise and they have blessed me with an amazing grandbaby. The three of us run errands together whenever we can! My second daughter is a junior at BYU-Idaho, who has saved money and worked hard to create a balanced life for herself.  My youngest, my son, has brought so much joy in my life.  We love to play games together.

My interests are a lot of homemaking - like sewing, canning, baking (no surprise there!) interior designing, home improvement, reading- well audiobooks while I'm crafting something else.  I also love, love camping! I could live at a campsite all summer.  I love hiking, ATVs, paddle boarding, fishing and boating.  I love being in the water.  I don't care if it's cold - I'm usually the first one in the water!

"(she) took our meager suggestions and turned them into a magnificent and delicious piece of art! Our cake was memorable centerpiece in the room, and Oh, For Heaven Cakes was a joy to work with, I would recommend them to anyone."
