Anyone who loves to bake knows who Buddy Valastro is. Or maybe it's just us. We love to bake and so we watch any baking show that we can. Well, his show, Cake Boss, is one that we always watch. We have been watching it for a couple years and we really wanted to visit his bakery. His bakery is Hoboken, NJ and is about 8.5 hours from us :(
Well, this summer we finally got to visit! Yay! We were so excited, but we expected to have to wait in line for hours, like the website says is possible (which we were not excited to do!). Fortunately though, we didn't have to wait for hours, maybe only an hour and a half, which was great!
When you get into the bakery it's so crowded, but it's a cute shop. We went on our birthday, so we got an 8 in. chocolate cake with fudge frosting. They also wrote "Happy Birthday" on it for us. Not only did we get that, but we also bought a lobster tail (the pastry kind, of course), biscotti, and a bag of assorted cookies. Everything was really good, but the cake was the favorite.
Above is a picture of us in front of Carlo's!
So, we didn't get to the bakery until about 6 p.m. and by the time we left the bakery it was around 7:30, and we didn't leave Hoboken until around 8, but we couldn't eat the cake until we got to the hotel (which was a 2.5 hr drive). Well, we got stuck in traffic because of a semi accident, so we didn't get to eat the cake until about midnight. Everyone was so tired, but we just had to eat the cake, so we ate cake and crashed!
