This past thursday, I was fortunate enough to visit the Cake Boss bakery in Hoboken!  For those of you who don’t know, TLC, has this reality tv show called Cake Boss, which is about the ups and downs of the everyday life of this famous bakery in Hoboken.   Buddy Valastro is the guy who runs the bakery, and he is the chief cake designer and he’s well respected in the country!  I have seen Buddy on the Food Network, my favorite network of all networks by the way, and he was a participant of the Food Network Cake Challenge.  I was interested in his work and of course now that he has his own show on TLC, it makes me that much more interested about him and his bakery in Hoboken!

I work in Jersey City, which isn’t too far away from Hoboken.   My co-workers planned a going away party for one of my co-worker in Hoboken and the first thing I thought was the Cake Boss’ bakery!! I knew I had to go there before they close at 7:30pm.  I quickly left in the middle of a pre-game celebration in Jersey City, which all my co-workers couldn’t understand, except for the ones who lives in Hoboken, and hopped on the next path train to Hoboken!  I felt so excited and exhilerated to be there.  I really didn’t cake that I was missing out on the pre-gaming party because I know that the actual party is in Hoboken!  But it would have been nice if I could have shared that excitement with another person.

Now let me share pictures of my visit there!

Be prepared to wait about 15+ minutes when you’re in the bakery.  When I was there at around 7pm, there were a lot of people inside.  You must grab a hold of the girl behind the counter otherwise people will skip you, like that happened to me!  I was astonished by all the fabulous pastries there that I didn’t even mind at all.  They take credit cards so my advice is to buy whatever your heart desire!  Call me crazy, but I think it’s worth paying in installments for all the fancy italian pastries here!

On the advice on my co-worker, I bought two cannolis to try!  I think cannolis are a hot item here because I see customers ordering by the pounds! I have to admit, the best cannoli that I have ever had is from this bakery.  Now, I’m not being bias, but I’m being honest.  The cream is not too sweet, like I’ve experienced with other cannolis, and it complimented well with the awesomely crispy deep fried shell.  I really liked it.  The tarts were pretty good!  Now I’ve never had these kinds of tarts before so I can’t give you my critique of it.  But everything that I’ve had in this bakery, including some Italian cookies that my co-worker convinced me to get, are really good!

What a fantastic trip coming here and I will definitely make more trips in the future!

    Cocoa Bakery, located in Jersey City, will be able to offer cakes and many of what Carlo’s offers.

    While we’re under construction, we’re taking orders for cakes, cookies and other items and baking them off site.

    Please consider us for your going away party cake. You’ll find us competitively priced, very attentive to the customer, aaaand the biggest compliment we’re received about our cakes is that people that don’t like cake love ours.

    Having an Asian Theme Birthday party for 125/p Would love to get info on a Red Velvet-Cherry blossom cake. Possibilities – sheet cake or 5 tier. And somehow place happy birthday Yolie in caligraphy (did I spell that right?) Live in Chicago area. Party will be held in China Town

    Your cakes look good with all the work u put into them me and my girlfriend watches the shows u have on,TLC . Keep up the good work and good luck

  4. Marie & John Boutote on July 10th, 2009 3:15 pm

    Comment: We have been watching you on TLC- Buddy, you are one of a kind.We live in Ct., but one day we will make it to your bakery. I, too, am Italian, and family means everything to me. Your designs are like no others.You are truly from the old school, catering to all kinds of customers, making sure they are totally satisfied and if something does go wrong, you will fix it. We don’t know you except watching you on TV, but I can tell, you are truly a family man who loves his family. My husband has been out of work since last Nov. and sometime he feels down, but when he watches your show you will see a smle on his face,especially, when someone tries to play a joke on you. You’re the bes! God bless you and good luck with your show.
    John & Marie

    Dear Buddy and Everyone,

    First of all I want to say I watch your show every week and I love it, I lived in Clifton, New Jersey for 30 t years. I moved to Montna 20 years ago and I still can not find any bakeries out here, I miss having a good bakery to go every Sunday and get cakes and hard rolls ect, I wish you could open a bakery here in Roundup, Montana. I would love it,. I am Italian also and I really miss having great food like you have in your bakery.
    Thank You for reading my e-mail. I know everyone is verybusy.

    I’m going there in the fall (2009). I’m excited about eating some cannoli. I love them! I just hope I don’t get a stomach ache and get the runs from eating too many of them. I lose self control around excellent cannoli.

  10. Gary Ruyle on August 2nd, 2009 12:29 pm

    My wife & I watch your show every chance we get. It’s a wonder that Carlo’s doesn’t have a heart attack especially when the lower those beautifl cakes down the stairs to the truck. We have ofented wodered if you don’t have more than one shop where you make thes wonderful cakes. As we see you using an elevator instead of the stairs.

    Kepp baking as we love your show & the bricker back & forth also makes it interesting.

    The ideas you come up with are interesting & how the out come will be for the customer.

  11. cheyenne on August 11th, 2009 7:18 pm

    Hi Buddy!
    I watch your show all the time and I truly love it. It’s really refreshing to see a tight knit family as yours working together with love. Today is my 43rd Birthday and I have been hinting my family about wanting one of your ready made cakes, but most likely they won’t travel from Manhattan to NJ for cake. Oh well, i guess one day i will have to go and visit your Bakery myself.
    Take care Buddy & Family

  21. Nancy Smith on October 6th, 2009 3:51 pm

    Hi Buddy,
    My parents grew up in Hoboken(Willow Ave) and your baked goods have been a big part of our Big Italian family gatherings. I live in CT. and long for the days of a good old Italian bakery. I wanted to know if you deliver to CT. I have a very special friend that is dying from ALS and want a really special cake. He has a reel lust for life and a great attitude for someone who is dying. He loved to ride his harley and has a tattoo Till The Wheels Fall Off on his neck. He is an inspiration to all. We will be celebrating his birthday on Oct. 23rd. Is this something you could do? We might be able to pick it up. Could you e-mail me details and price.

  22. Robert Bitterman on October 6th, 2009 8:45 pm


    I need a cake made in August 2010. In August 2010 Starlight Studio and Art Gallery is going to celebrate it 5th anniversary I need a Cake made for it. I need to now how much it will cost.

  39. Carol Moore on November 21st, 2009 9:07 pm

    Hey Buddy,
    My Family and I all watch your show. My son Connor 9 yr old and Daughter Kelsey 7yr old just love your show. They always ask me Mom when is the Cake Boss on. My Daughter Kelsey never had a cake made for her. kelsey is allergic to peanuts, egg, milk and all dairy. She is making her communion May 1st and I know if she had a cake made from the Cake Boss she would be beside herself with happiness. TO MAKE KELSEY A CAKE WOULD BE A GREAT CHALLENGE BUT IF ANYONE CAN DO IT YOU CAN.

I begged my husband to look you up and promise me a trip to your bakery, I desperately want to inquire about your cakes We have a 14-month old little girl with a baptism coming up and I would be in heaven if I could purchase one of your speacialty cakes. We also think your team is HILARIOUS!!!. Honestly great show, great family, GOD BLESS YOU ALL!!!

  55. Carol on January 8th, 2010 11:06 pm

    Hi Carlos,

    I love watching you in the cake challenges and your own TV show. I have never seen anyone as creative as you are with cakes. You really have a gift from God. Keep up the good work.

  56. Sheri on January 12th, 2010 5:23 pm

    My family would like to come visit your shop for our next vacation and we were wondering when Cannoli Day is in 2010. We love your show!

  57. Courtney Webb on January 13th, 2010 2:09 pm

    OMG Im a huge fan of the show and Ive always wanted to be a cake designer. Im an Art IV and I love to paint and make up ideas. With my life going on pause for a little boy I dont think my dreams will come true. Im from a small town in Ohio, called Wheelersburg and I would love it if Buddy could contact me, even if its an email or something…Im 18 years old and Im a high school senior. It would totally make my day. Like I said I love the show!!

    Phone: 740-574-5815

  58. Shelley on January 14th, 2010 4:34 am

    OH MY GOSH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    ARE you KIDDING ME???? Buddy is NEVER going to read this! This is not ‘his’ site. I HIGHLY suggest that if you have a special request for him or if you want to brag on him or anyone dealing with the bakery, that you go to the Carlo’s Bakery website. And yes, there is one. You can also call the bakery. Please read things before you go and ppost a bunch of stuff and waste your time and evergy. Not being mean, just giving a little help.

  59. finechinaguy on January 15th, 2010 11:44 am

    Its weird isn’t it? The post is clearly not written by Buddy but so many people’s comments assume so.

  60. Sydney David on January 16th, 2010 2:58 pm

    WOW I just love your cakes and it,s my birthday on the 17th of Janaury. Im gonna be ten. And I want to make a cake like you do. I always stay up late and wach your show.

    You’re so lucky that you got to go there!!!!!!! I am jealous…
    I live in Toronto (Canada, eh..hahaha), and I hope to someday make it out there to his bakery…
    I know it’s far, but if I end up going to New York for a trip, I will DEFINITELY be making it out to Carlo’s Bakery… It would be a waste NOT to go! ;)
    Great pictures, I love that show, and his cakes are all amazing works of art…

    I saw the beautiful, salute you gave your Dad, on the television, and that cake
    that was your Dad’s favoirte, if anyone orders that cake, what would it cost?
    to feed 30 people. And what does it cost to send at cake by air mail. I believe

    I love cake boss. I watch the show every Monday. That is so cool that you were able to go to Carlo’s Bakery! ive always wanted to go. But i’m not old enough to drive yet so i cant go:( but i think there cakes are AMAZING. there so beautiful. i wish i could make cakes like that.
    Did you get to meet Buddy?

  107. katherine on December 18th, 2010 9:49 pm

    hi buddy my name is katherine and im 11yrs old and i love your t.v show i watch it all the time. when i grow up i want to be a baker just like you

  108. Prin on December 27th, 2010 11:03 pm

    Today, more than four hours i watched Carlos of Cake Boss. This was my first time watching the show with Carlos as host. I enjpyed the show. When I first saw Megan there was a feeling she would stay around. To see her turn on Pamela with Corina was a surprise. I saw the little gestures and under tone remarks made between Corina, Megan and Greg.

    Pamela was a threat and sabortaged by Corina. Who would do anything to win. Megan was’nt injured as much as she pretended. I saw the entire sit-
    uation. Corina started by trying to make Pamela look like a villian. Pamela will be just excellent. She appears to have a focused work ethic. Corina used her as an escape goat to cover for manner displayed exhibiting her true inhibitions. First cake the trunk made to denote the first seven bad years in her marriage. Is this how you celebrate an anniversary (national TV)?

    Corina threatening Brian with a knife. Also said, if she losted because of him; she knew his address and would get him. He left not wanting future drama with her. Shows like being made juicy for the viewers, however, some situations should be dealt with at that time. The men team was so loving and not making waves; I want to be the top man alone.

    Sometimes, great individuals need to stand alone. I admired Pamela and
    knew she was aware of what was taking place, dealt with it peaceful and
    honestly. The customers and market is more than broad for her skills here in the USA and abroad. I know it was a pleasure for you having her on the
    cake show.



  109. Prin on December 27th, 2010 11:15 pm


    I am going to get the location and address for CARLOS BAKERY. italian food and pantries are my favorites. See you soon. Your team at CARLOS BAKERY are truly and asset to you. I saw this today as I watched the show.
