One of my favorite show is Cake Boss from channel TLC. Cake Boss is about a baker named Buddy Valastro, who makes cakes. But he doesn’t make any ordinary cakes; he is an artist. Buddy Valastro works with his mother, his four sisters, three brothers-in-law and other family members and friends. They work in a bakery in New Jersey, called Carlos Bakery.
Carlos Bakery’s original owner was Carlo Guastaferro, but was purchased by Buddy Valastro Sr. in 1964. Ever since than, Buddy Sr. dedicated his time at the bakery. He was known for his kind heart and generosity. After his death in March 24th 1994, his son, Buddy Valastro Jr. took over the bakery and continued the Carlo’s Bakery.
Carlo’s Bakery became famous in April 2009 when the premier of Cake Boss aired on TLC. The reality show focuses on the staffs of bakery making elaborate cakes that are specially ordered by customers. However, the show not only focuses on the process of making the cakes, but also the interaction and drama that goes around the work place between the family members.
I love watching Cake Boss because it is amazing how Buddy makes all of these cakes that are seem impossible. Every time the customers ask Buddy Valastro to make the cakes, I always think, ‘There is no way he can make this cake’. However, he always surprises his viewers by making all of these seem-to-be-impossible-cakes. Also, it is amazing that everything from the cake is edible!! I truly believe that Buddy is not just an ordinary baker; he is an artist. He is an artist who expresses his talent through dough, sugar, and icings.
Here are some Buddy’s wonderful and amazing cakes!!
