We were in Hoboken recently strolling up and down Washington Street when we spotted mobs of people in very long lines. Turns out, they were waiting to get in Carlo’s Bakery probably to catch a glimpse of the Cake Boss himself.
I’m sure you all know him, but for those who don’t – Buddy Valastro (the star of Cake Boss) is the lovable and inspiring master baker and cake decorator on the TLC hit series. Since losing his dad at a young age, he has a strong desire to achieve his father's dream of making Carlo's Bake Shop a household name. The show chronicles Buddy and his family working together on master cake creations for people like Oprah, Rachael Ray and the New York Giants.
Time didn’t permit for me to wait in the long line to get into Carlo’s Bakery, but if it did...I certainly would have given Buddy a giant hug.
