“Oh my goodness, it's Mario! My name is Tayce T. I looooove to cook! ♥”
Tayce T. is a Toad cook who lives in Toad Town. The name "Tayce T." is a pun on the word "tasty". She appears only in Paper Mario, but Nintendo follows the concept of her basic purpose in later Paper Mario games and introduces three other cooks with different names: Zess T. in Paper Mario: The Thousand-Year Door and Saffron and Dyllis in Super Paper Mario. After Mario finds the Cookbook for Tayce T. (hidden in Shy Guy's Toy Box), she can cook using up to two items per recipe.
If the player gives Tayce T. her Frying Pan (which a Shy Guy stole shortly before Chapter 4), she will bake Mario a Cake. Upon doing so, she mentions that she only bakes cakes for special people because it was a delicious Cake that won her late husband over, therefore making Cakes a heartfelt item for her to prepare. Wonky states in Paper Mario: The Thousand-Year Door that Zess T. has an almost identical issue with Couple's Cake.
As in the game, a Shy Guy steals Tace T.'s Frying Pan. Mario attempts to beat the Shy Guy, but he ends up beating up her instead. Soon, a Shy Guy steals her mushroom cap, revealing a shiny bald head inside, making her cry.
