For those of you who don’t know, Cake Boss is a T.V. show on TLC. The show revolves around Carlos’s Bakery in New Jersey. The show was a hit success and now they opened a store called Carlos Bake Shop in Times Square.
“It was at the bakery that Buddy found his calling and knew his destiny was to help his father make the family business a household name. He didn’t realize how soon he would be called to action. When he was 17, his father passed way, forever changing Buddy’s life. Drawing on the strength of his memory, it was time for Buddy to step up to the role he had been primed for and become the new Cake Boss.”
My mom and I visited the Times Square and picked up a couple treats!
“Each week, the business averages around 60 wedding cakes, 500 birthday cakes, hundreds of cannoli’s and more. Ernst & Young has also recognized Buddy for his extraordinary success and personal commitment to his businesses and community by honouring Buddy as Humanitarian of the Year.”
“Buddy’s first two books, Cake Boss, Stories and Recipes from Mia Familiglia (Free Press, Nov. 2010) and Baking with the Boss: 100 of Buddy’s best Recipes and Decorating Secrets (Atria Books, Nov. 2011), are New York Times best-sellers and have led to highly successful follow-ups.
