I dig the Crazy Cake Boss

By January 19, 2010 Everyday Life 9 Comments

Update- we just hit the 200 T shirt mark.  We need 200 more to go!! It’s been such an amazing week launching the HopeChest Project- we are half way to our goal of providing 400 orphans with new shoes and shirts.  We need to sell 400 Valentines Day HopeChest T shirts to give each child their gift of love.  400 for 400- I don’t want any child left behind!  Please pray for the Project every day and help spread the word.  Last day to order, Feb. 1st.

On a lighter, fluffier note- are there any Cake Boss stalkers fans out there in bloggy land that love this crazy show like I do?  My family loves this tasty, sugary, high energy, fiery tempered reality show with Buddy Valastro and his family.  If you’re feeling lost in the batter, Buddy 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.http://tlc.discovery.com/tv/cake-boss/images/cake-boss-buddy-valastro-175.jpg 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.

http://www.carlosbakery.com/Portals/0/colorful%20cake%20web.jpgI wish I could have one of his specialty cakes for my birthday.  If I could sit down with Buddy and give him my cake order, I would have him build me a 2 layer red velvet cake with his “dirty icing” in chocolate and covered with butter cream.  My theme is simple- children of the world.  He can make it look scrumptious with his spunky personality and amazing creativity.  What a great way to celebrate my birthday and adoption all in one yummy buttery crumb cake.

Just for fun- if you could order a cake today, what would you pick?

Here’s Buddy’s Recommendations for Wedding and Specialty-Cakes

Red Velvet cake with Vanilla or Cream Cheese Icing
Black and White Cake with Hazelnut Cream
Black and White cake with Chocolate Fudge
Devil’s Food Cake with Chocolate Ganache and Fresh Raspberries
Devil’s Food Cake with Chocolate Mousse, a thin layer of Chocolate Ganache, and Fresh Raspberries or Fresh Strawberries
Vanilla Cake with Lemon French Cream and Fresh Raspberries
Carrot Cake with Cream Cheese Icing

    Hi Kari,

    I like the Cake Boss too. I don't watch it regularly. I'm still praying for God to send me a DVR…. I totally go for dirty icing, chocolate cake, and some kind of raspberry flavor. You think he delivers to MD?

    The Cake Boss is one of my greatest loves! Well, you know my love for the culinary arts 🙂 I watch Ace of Cakes too.

    I would order the vanilla with the lemon and raspberry.

    I may have to do some baking today 🙂

    To the poster who talked about opinion vs. fact, as if everybody agreed it was a threat, please consider this viewpoint. And about ten more from different angles.
