There are so darn few shows that are appropriate to watch with our kids. In our house, THE go to show is Cake Boss. Buddy Valastro, Ralph, Morro and Maddalena are our favorites. They feel like they are part of the family around here, and we really enjoy watching the bakery antics. We’ve talked often about making the journey to New Jersey to check out the bakery in person, hoping for the chance to meet the folks there we have come to adore.

Baking with Cake Boss
We were lucky enough to have the Cake Boss folks send us a box full of goodies, and we’ve had a great time testing them out. My girls are baking fiends, and are constantly honing their skills with the idea of opening their own bakery together some day. We have been so impressed by the quality of the baking products that included several varieties of cake mix, fondant, and frostings!
The products are all top notch. The cake mixes all come with a packet of custard to fold into the cake batter, keeping the cake super moist. The mix rises like none other, and the texture and taste of the final product can’t be beat. The fondant is brilliantly colored, and rolls out very easily, and does not dry out like other fondants. The frosting is literally “the icing on the cake,” and so very tasty.
These pictures are the creations that my girls made with the products they sent us. As adorable as their final cakes were, they tasted even better! They started with cupcakes decorated with fondant flowers,then moved on to a square red velvet 6 layer cake (that was sooooooo good),and ended with Devil’s food pancakes made from Cake Boss cake mix. Not bad for a 10 and 8 year old!
Don’t have the time, skills, or inclination to make your own masterpiece? It turns out you can get a gorgeous, tasty little number like this for just $20, and you can find it at a local grocery store! These cakes are not made at Carlos’ Bakery, but they do use Buddy’s recipes and designs. You can check out all the cakes available here. The three Cake Boss photos shown are the new cakes for this season, just released in stores! Sophia, Buddy’s daughter even got into the decorating action, and designed her own cake! Check it out below!
