About Albena's Custom Cakes
Bulgarian born Albena Petrova was raised in a family of artists – a sculptor and a jeweller, and that is where she developed an interest in painting and sculpting from an early age. She graduated from the School of Fine Arts, (Sofia, Bulgaria), specializing in pottery making and glass engraving, and a few years back she got her diploma from Pearson School of Culinary Arts in Montreal, specializing in Pastry Making – and that is when 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 customer’s ideas, visions and dreams. She loves thinking out of the box and experimenting with tools and materials. Attention to the detail is an important part of her work, while she always welcomes a challenge as the owner of Sweet Temptations – Custom Cakes by Albena in Montreal.
Throughout her career, Albena has accumulated a long list of awards including: Winner of the first place at 2013 Montreal Cake Show - Wedding Cakes Category – as well as having her work featured in: Cake Central Magazine – Volume 6, issue 1, Marriage Quebec, Premium Series on Cake Geek Magazine – Winter Wedding Cake Design, Cake Design – France, Pretty Witty Cakes Magazine – edition 8, American Cake Decorating Website and DIY Weddings Magazine.
