Piccione has been baking since she was a child. Both of her grandfathers
were bakers in Hudson, Massachusetts and she claims it is just
"in her blood". After graduating with honors from University
of South Carolina with a Bachelor of Science degree in business
and marketing, she returned to Cape Cod, the place where she vacationed
as a child. Working with her husband in their prepress business
on Cape Cod, she provided dessert catering part-time, specializing
in a gourmet Key Lime Pie and Chocolate Truffle Cake. Now focusing
her attention on Wicked Walnuts, Susan has a chance not only to
be the baker, but to utilize her marketing skills.
Walnuts are gourmet baked, spiced cranberries and walnuts.
They are packaged in Cape Cod themed gift bags. Susan and her
new Cape Cod product will be featured in the cover story of an
upcoming Cranberries magazine.
addition to running Wicked Walnuts, Susan is a busy mother of
two boys and is the calendar editor for A Plus Arts and Antiques
magazine on Cape Cod. Wicked Walnuts is a member of the Massachusetts
Specialty Food Association.
