Treasury of Dessertskathy's blue wedding cake

 As a teenager, Kathy Gauntlett had no idea which career path to choose and little inclination to choose one. When a school guidance counselor suggested that she examine the offerings of the then College of Arts, Science and Technology (CAST) in Kingston, Jamaica, she practically scoffed. However, as fate would have it, their baking technology course caught her interest, and she signed up.

Kathy had discovered her talent. From there developed her love of baking, and her life path was set. In 1997, she started her own business, lovingly named “Treasury of Desserts.” From her kitchen at home, she began to produce delicious and tasty desserts for a range of clientele.

 Her offerings include beautiful wedding cakes, birthday, christening and shower cakes. She expertly bakes appetizing cookies, puddings, pies and tarts, but cheesecakes are her specialty.

Chocolate cake

In 2011, she was Chocolate cakenominated Best Dessert Caterer of The Year in the Observer Food Awards competition. Her oreo cheesecake was a hit with the judges and she won first place.

Today she continues to produce scrumptious and delectable treats from her home in Kingston where she resides with her husband, Karl Tait, and her young daughter. She is currently searching for a regular outlet for her desserts in order to make her creations more accessible to the public.

You can find her offerings on her website at www.treasuryofdesserts.com or email her at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. . She can also be found on Facebook at https://www.facebook.com/TreasuryOfDesserts
