Ep 253: Bringing Your Unique Artistic Vision to Life Is Not A Piece of Cake with Albena Petrova

Ep 253: Bringing Your Unique Artistic Vision to Life Is Not A Piece of Cake with Albena Petrova

I highly recommend heading straight to our website at unconventionallifeshow.com to see our guest’s incredible work for this week’s episode.

Albena Petrova, born in Bulgaria, was raised in a family of artists. Her passion for cakes began after she got her diploma from Pearson School of Culinary Arts in Montreal, specializing in Pastry Making.

She uses her unique artistic vision to bring cakes to life and cakes with a message. Attention to details is a vital part of her work. And as her skills progressed, she can design cakes according to her customers’ visions and dreams. She never runs out of inspiration; it can be from flowers, fashion, art, architecture and nature. She’s been making cakes for six years now, and for her, every day is a new learning opportunity to improve her craft.

So when I say her Instagram is a must-see, this is what I meant.

 

“Be brave but calculate the risk.”
