Celebrating its 25th Anniversary in 2009, Jan purchased Tempting Treasures in 1984 so she could practice her hobby on a regular basis. She originally started the creative pastime when she was a child. Jan began using chocolate molds and as she got older took numerous cake classes. In 1976 she was introduced to candy molds and it wasn’t long before she began to teach classes at recreation centers, high schools and churches.
Today, Tempting Treasures, which is open Monday through Saturday, 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m., is busier than ever. More and more people are interested in making their own candies and cakes for gifts or special occasions. She sees people from all over the Valley including first-time customers who are making their own wedding cake, tourists, candy-making veterans and novices. Jan admits that it isn’t just fun, it is easy to learn, especially with the simple step-by-step instructions, recipes and special tips she hands out to new customers.Tempting Treasures by Jan
