TARA GOWEN - PASTRY CHEF, HOME BAKER, BLOGGER
Welcome to Tara's Treats! Our mission is to create quality treats made with passion and love, and to provide every customer with an unparalleled product and experience.
We started as a small cottage bakery in the infamous Twenty-nine Palms, CA. There we focused on perfecting our products and provided the Marine families with sweet treats to enjoy. As an Air Force veteran I knew the way to help my husband's enlistment pass by was to engage myself in something I had passion for. That was where the first thought came from. I started baking cakes for fellow Marine wives, and by word of mouth alone I would get more requests than I had time for. So, I dug in my heels, and I obtained all licenses federally, state, and local specific. To this day I will still get requests from the twenty-nine palm area.
My husbands enlistment ends May 2019 and we moved home to Missouri where we own our own home in Saint Peter's. Tara's Treats is now producing for the Saint Louis area, and will soon open as a brick and mortar shop where you can actually watch me decorate cakes by fall of 2019.
We are and will continue to be a family owned business providing you with only the most delicious treats.
