Meet Susan

Chef Susan Kolman with Tools | Artful Sweets LLC

I’m originally from Maryland and moved with my family to Scottsdale in 2008. Leaving corporate business, briefcases, and high heels to follow my passion for baking was a leap of faith and one of the best decisions I've ever made. I’ve had the amazing fortune to work with a number of world-renowned pastry chefs, develop dessert menus and recipes for restaurants, manage a bakery, and teach baking and pastry to home cooks and aspiring professional chefs. In January 2019, I opened Artful Sweets focusing on handcrafting wedding and celebration cakes and specialty desserts.


When I’m not working on cake and dessert projects, you can find me practicing new techniques, experimenting with recipes, hunting down delicious ingredients, and incessantly learning from other cake designers and pastry professionals. I also love spending time hanging out with my husband, family and friends, talking long walks soaking in the beauty of our desert, playing with our dogs, struggling to master yoga poses, and traveling whenever possible.
