I have a SWEET message to share about (Vendor) Artful Sweets. LLC
I have a SWEET message to share!
Earlier this year I commissioned a birthday cake to be created by ARTFUL SWEETS, LLC. I was looking for a combo of Red Velvet & Carrot Cake an all in one delight! To add to my request I was looking for a Tuscan looking colors of copper and gold for an exterior appeal. Owner Pastry Chef Susan Kolman fulfilled my cake combo challenge to a tee.
On another occasion, I had commissioned Susan of ARTFUL SWEETS, LLC. last year to make motorcycle cookies for my Dad's 79th birthday placing his year of wisdom on the gas tank (Dad use to race motorcycles when I was a little gal). I just knew she was my go-to person for challenge #2.
If you have a SWEET tooth (too) on your mind for an occasion I would encourage giving Susan of ARTFUL SWEETS, LLC a whirl for your special occasion at 480.268.0615 firstname.lastname@example.org and you will be floating with a super sugar high too!
I knew Susan of ARTFUL SWEETS, LLC was my go-to person AGAIN for challenge #3. I was super excited for the fun 80th birthday cookies for my Dad and his neighbors at the Assisted Living.
My dad had a "custom pool" business in his hay day (after the motorcycle days). I thought it would be fitting for "custom design" pool cookies for his big day created by pastry chef Susan Kolman Owner of Artful Sweets LLC.
I would so recommend Susan's company for your event She worked up a sketch for my approval on the cookie creations and delivered them personally to my door (all masked up). The presentation was in an adorable pastry pink box the masterpiece cookies were all individually wrapped. So if you are looking for custom cakes, cookies and other pastry delight you too will be amazed by Susan of ARTFUL SWEETS LLC. email@example.com 480.268.0615Sent on 12/29/2020

The Best Pastry Chef in Arizona
Susan Kolman is the most amazing Pastry Chef I have ever personally known. Having gone to Le Cordon Bleu and degreed in the Culinary Arts, I remember how hard the pastry classes were. Every time I see a new creation she does I am truly amazed. Not only are the cakes hard to believe that they are really a cake since they look like works of art. She did a cake for me for a friend that was moving away. My friend loved photography so I asked Susan if she could make a cake that looks like a camera. Oh my gosh I looked so real down to the leather strap to the buttons and the detail of it all. I couldn’t believe what I was seeing. Not only did it look like a real camera is was so delicious! Multiple layers of different flavors even the black fondant was delicious! I would recommend her to anyone that is looking for a cake for any occasion, if you want something absolutely delicious and something that is work of art that you would never see anywhere else, please reach out to Susan. You won’t regret it!

You can’t go wrong with Artful Sweets! Beautiful, tasty wedding cake and cookies!! And so wonderful to work with!
I found Artful Sweets (Susan) online and loved the pictures of past cakes. I emailed Susan and she got back to me the same day. We had a tasting that was AMAZING! So many good flavors and icing. I showed her a picture of what I was thinking design wise for our cake and the colors of my wedding. She matched it perfectly! It was stunning. She was also so kind and communicative during the whole experience. She checked in with me the week before the wedding to make sure everything was good to go. She delivered the cake to our venue and it was truly a beautiful cake! And so tasty— it melted in your mouth. I highly recommend Artful Sweet and definitely try the pink champagne cake! SO GOOD! The cake was a huge hit with our wedding party along with the beautifully decorated cookies we used as take home goodies. She individually wrapped the cookies for our guests which was perfect. I can’t say enough good things about Susan at Artful Sweets. The cake was exactly what I envisioned and we couldn’t be happier. Thank you Artful Sweet!!!Sent on 04/13/2021
