Michaela blogged last week about her mixed feelings for the show Hitched or Ditched. Here's a show I'm loving: Cake Boss on TLC. It's a reality show that follows Buddy Valastro, owner of Carlo's Bakery in Hoboken, NJ. We at MB know Buddy well—our Lifestyle Director, Linda Hirst, discovered him years ago—and we feature his cakes in our magazine all the time. But even I had no idea what goes on behind the scenes at his shop. First of all, Buddy's a trip. He resembles a young Joe Mantegna, and his Jersey accent is as thick as buttercream. Buddy's surrounded by his siblings, mother, and brother-in-law, who all work in the bakery.
Fondant or buttercream? Read the Wedded Bits interview with Buddy Valastro to find out what he prefers.
