My NEW Fav Show

Cake Boss on TLC
I always make time to tune in on TLC Monday nights at 9pm or DVR it. :) It amazes me the talent that goes into these cakes and nothing is too complicated for Buddy, the owner.

Buddy Valastro is one of the most successful and renowned cake artists in the United States. Master baker of Carlo's City Hall Bake Shop in Hoboken, New Jersey, Buddy is the cake boss.
He supervises a team that includes his mother, four older sisters and three brothers-in-law. And when you're working with family on a daily basis, there is bound to be a lot of drama. The Valastros know drama but and at the end of the day they also know love.
Cake Boss chronicles Buddy's over-arching desire to achieve his late father's dream of making Carlo's Bake Shop a household name with or without the help of his family.

This was featured in Bride Magazine.... even the flowers are edible!!


  1. I love this show as well...but to tell you the truth, if he was my boss and talked to me like the way he does him employees I would crawl in a corner and cry. Also, I don't know what a Connoli (Sp?) is but they look good and I think I need to try one!

  2. lol I would have to agree. I am a softy and would probably cry if he was my boss as well. I don't know what connolis are either... they do look delicious!

  3. I didn't know what a connoli was either, so I looked it up on the internet. It seems the shell could be filled with different types of pastries.
    "A cannoli is a crisp hand-rolled pastry shell filled with an exquisite thick cream made of ricotta cheese, miniature chocolate chips and finely diced candied fruit."
