Cravin' Confections is Wake Forest's only dessert bar and bakery. We are committed to using quality, fresh ingredients to create luxurious desserts and decadent confections.


Our journey began with cherished family traditions and a deep-seated passion for baking, nurtured through generations. From helping mom and granny in the kitchen to exploring dessert cafes during flight attendant layovers, baking has always been at the heart of who we are.

After settling in northeast Raleigh, we seized the opportunity to pursue our dream. Enrolling in the Baking and Pastry Arts program at Wake Tech in 2020 expanded our culinary horizons and honed our skills. With unwavering support from loved ones, we transformed our vision into reality—a cozy bakery offering delectable desserts and crafted cocktails.


Baking has been my passion for over 20 years and I'm so excited to open my own dessert bar. I can't wait to share my favorite desserts with everyone.

Jennifer Smith, Owner
