By nature, I consider myself to be a creative creature, I love it when I become inspired because it is when I create my most appreciated works of art, whether it be an organizational project, a craft, a poem, a new recipe, a blog post, or even a smash book page... I love being creative. So it is only fitting that I become engrossed in television shows that display a level of creativity that is absolutely fantastic. Ultimately, I enjoy watching the food network, cooking shows, and things of the like, Paula Dean is a hoot, and Top Chef is amazing, but nothing takes the cake like my NEW favorite show CAKE BOSS!!!
"Buddy" Valastro runs his father's shop Carlo's Bakery in Hoboken, New Jersey!!! Now there have been plenty of other shows that are about bakers and crazy amazing cakes, but something about Buddy that just melts my heart. First and foremost, he's got an amazing personality, he's funny, silly, serious, creative, and family oriented.
How could I possibly know that Buddy is Family oriented? The majority of the staff at the bakery is made up of Buddy's family, whether it be immediate of extended! Which I think is amazing and completely awesome at the same time. All of the team members are Carlo's Bakery work extra hard to fill all of the customized orders every week, but also to keep the bakery afloat and when mistakes happen, and they do, Buddy has a fit, but then the all band together to get the job done, even if it is until 2-3 in the morning!
How does Buddy get the title of Cake Boss? He makes the most amazing cakes, he has an amazing vision, he's not just a baker, or a cake decorator, he's a visionary. You give Buddy your idea, and he'll create you a cake that is exactly what you wanted. I love that people come from all over to purchase one of his cakes, and they challenge him... From O Magazine, City Replicas, and honoring top brands, his cakes are ALWAYS spectacular, because he oversees every single detail, and doesn't consider the cake done, until he's satisfied his vision.
I've got some crazy level of admiration for the Cake Boss, and though it might be silly, I want to visit Hoboken, New Jersey just so I can meet Buddy, his team, and of course devour one of his beautiful creations! Its not that Buddy is a Television Star that lives relatively close, it is that he's awesome, amazing and well, I want to be able to not just admire what I see on television, but to speak first hand about his work! Let's add this to my bucket list of things I just simply have to do and call it a day!
I've been inspired to share more bits and pieces about myself, my family and things that are important to me, I plan on featuring my sister on Immutable Ramblings as well, don't worry, it'll be a breath of fresh air, but through this collaboration, I hope to not just improve my blogging/writing skills, but to bond more with my sister, Jessika, MrsMorphosis!!!
Until Next Time,
