Catalina Anghel(Spectacular Pakistan)
by Faiza Sherjeel
Catalina Anghel from Spain
Catalina Anghel is a professional Baker located in Vila-real, Spain. She bakes since she remembers, with her grandmother and mother but seriously started three years ago, as a therapy for a health problem.
At first it was just a hobby, but little by little it turned into a real passion - an addiction-and finally an essential part of her life - her work. She loves to make sugar flowers- developed a method of her own, a free forme one.
Now she teaches sugar flowers and works full time as cake decorator.
