Having Our Cake Too

The venue we booked has a baker as part of the deal. It’s pretty exciting actually. The bakery they’re using is Carlo’s Bakery, in Hoboken. The main guy – Buddy – has been on the Food Network a bunch of times, and I just found out that he just launched his own show on TLC called Cake Boss.

I’m not sure how I feel about this. One the one hand, it’s great to know that the bakery that’s going to make our cake is good enough to get on TV. The downside is that I’m afraid he’s going to get “too big” and that his wedding customers will get less-than-perfect cakes. Here’s hoping that he can balance both, because he really does seem to do great work!

Now, on a slight tangent. Just because we have a bakery lined up doesn’t mean that my fiance and I wouldn’t mind “shopping around” other bakeries so we can get in on some tastings. Have any of you ever booked a caterer/baker, and then still went around for tastings? We basically want to eat our proverbial cake, but avoid the incessant follow-up. :)

    That’s so cool! They seem so mean in the commercials but their cakes look so yummy.

    his cakes are terrific looking . though it seems he should call himself the rice krispie boss then cake boss. all the cakes he makes seem to be rice krispies. Like the model train cake that he made. it was either fondant dirty icing or rice krispies. try usinfpound cake.
