Lover of France AND color!
Born in Ukraine/Russia area, Sasha grew up around French music, movies, and bakes (courtesy of her grandmother and mother!).
After visiting Paris with her husband and friends, she vowed to master French desserts 1.5 years ago.
Since that trip, Sasha has mastered macaroons, mousse, pastries, tarts, profiteroles and more!
With 12 and 10 year old boys, and 3 year old daughter (Sasha and her husband finally got a little Princess!💖), Sasha became very dedicated to learning how to make her kids birthday treats. She is all self-taught and always open to share her knowledge, tips, tricks, and tutorials with her followers!
Sasha comes from creative and analytical backgrounds, holding degrees in Music Arts (Piano) and Accounting
Prior to getting involved in cake decorating, she was a makeup artist and account executive for a few cosmetics companies. That is when Sasha started to get addicted to colors and experimenting with them!
Q1. Congratulations on being invited by Wilton to their HQ! What was the best part?
Thank you very much! The best part was to truly experience "bake your world happy", which is what Wilton really stands for! Every hard working, creative, and dedicated team member that I have met that day delighted me with warmest welcome and shared highlights of their projects and responsibilities.
Q2. Your designs are always so unique - Where do you get cake inspiration from?
Truly thank you, it really means a lot! Inspiration is everywhere to me, from colors of the current season or holiday, to nature, sprinkles, as well as our incredible baking community!
Q3. What cake did you have the most fun creating and why?
I had the most fun with creating the candy filled fault line cake! 😁🍬🍭 I've played with candy melts and molds, making these fun candies which inspired me to put together a double textured fault line cake.
Q4. All of your cakes are a burst of color! If you only had three colors to decorate with, what ones would you pick?
I would pick deep turquoise, soft pink, and red! :)
Q5. Outside of baking, do you have any other creative outlets you enjoy?
Yes! I love crafting and doing any outdoor activities with my husband and three kids, listening to music, and playing piano!
Q6. It's almost a New Year... what do you think will be the biggest cake trend in 2020?
I feel that the biggest cake trend of 2020 will be painted cakes - from edible colors to buttercream and even ganache.
