Martina Nardo has been a Pastry Chef and Cake Designer for the past six years in NYC. Born and raised in Rome, Italy, her passion for food and art stems from her heritage. Her grandmother taught her to appreciate the simplicity of Italian cuisine, its flavors, and the cultural value associated with it. Her mother – a graphic designer & illustrator – is a major influence encouraging her to apply creativity towards her cakes making them true works of art. Upon receiving her BA in Psychology from the New School, she began her studies of the Culinary Arts at the Institute of Culinary Education, and finished with a degree in Cake Designs and Techniques at The French Culinary Institute in NYC. After working in several kitchens throughout Manhattan, Martina launched Sugar Sketch in 2013. Her work aims at combining Italian flavor profiles with modern American designs using the best quality ingredients to create something memorable, beautiful and tasteful!
