Sasha Nary is a Ukrainian self-taught baker, confectionary artist, cake decorator and mom of three from Chicago. Specializing in magical, and over the top decorating elements, her delicious and mind-blowing cakes and pastries include Rainbow Marble Party Cake, Decadent, Zebra Bundt Cake, Sea Shell Meringue Treats, and Peanut Butter and Jelly Choux Buns.
Originally from Ukraine, Sasha moved to the United States 20 years ago and submerged herself into learning a new language, culture and eventually earned a degree in business management. But what brought her the most joy was baking for family and friends.
Always driven by vibrant color, an unstoppable passion to uplift others, and a desire to take her passion of baking and cake decorating to the next level, Sasha made a life-changing decision to master the art of French desserts and enter the world of cake decorating full time.
