Bulgarian-born Albena was raised in a family of artists, a sculptor and a jeweller, and she developed an interest in painting and sculpting from an early age. She graduated from the National Academy of Arts (Sofia, Bulgaria) specialising in pottery making and glass engraving, and a few years back, she got her diploma from Pearson School of Culinary Arts in Montreal specialising in Pastry Making – where her passion for cakes began.
After culinary school, Albena was very interested in creating cakes by using her unique artistic vision to bring cakes to life. As her skills progressed, her cakes became more and more uniquely designed according to customers’ ideas, visions and dreams. During her career, Albena has accumulated a long list of awards including First Place at 2013 Montreal Cake Show in the Wedding Cakes category.
