Susanne Carpenter, owner and head pastry chef, was born and raised in New Hampshire.  After a decade in the software industry post-college, she changed gears to follow her passion for baking. She worked for a local bakery and graduated from the Professional Pastry Program at The Cambridge School of Culinary Arts, studying under Master Pastry Chef Delphin Gomes and receiving the Saint Michel Award. 


After graduation Susanne worked for another local pastry shop and started teaching at the Boston Center for Adult Education.  In 2016 she was invited to Martha Stewart’s home to participate in an episode of  'Martha Bakes'. 


Susanne lives in southern New Hampshire with her husband and two children. Outside of baking, she is an avid runner and triathlete.
