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. Cake Boss is the half-hour series that 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.
The odds of my liking this show were very low - but it is amazing. I never realized the skill and craftsmanship involved in making such outrageous cakes. The fun, the family values, intrigue, it has it all. Most of all, I learned nothing is impossible.
