Cake Boss line now extends two blocks

Cake Boss fans now barricaded against CVS

After several people passed out from heat exhaustion this week, the perpetual line of people waiting to visit the Cake Boss at Carlo’s Bakery have now been shifted south on Washington Street adjacent to the CVS Pharmacy. They even have a handler coordinating when people can cross the street.

    This is hysterical. I suspect this has more to due with concerns over the sidewalks being able to carry the sheer tonnage of those waiting in line than anything else. Spreading it out like this may help to prevent a cave-in.

    Buddy’s in Italy, you poor fainting fools, and the pastry’s not that good!

      The goods are not bad. I have not been since the show took off, so I have no idea if the quality is still there. I have never had one of their simple cakes, though… just pastries and Italian cheese cakes. Not the best, but not bad at all.

      The waiting is what I do not get. I guess these are the same personality types that go to stand outside the window of the Today Show and such. I do not have the patience to wait in a normal line in a store… I would not wait in a line like that unless there was going to be some type of deviant act performed at the end.

    This picture is as disturbing as the mental one I have of Zimmer naked.

    Carlo’s has really become rediculous. A few months ago after giving a $500 deposit for a cake no one would call me back, email me back and when I went in there (after getting yelled at by tourists for cutting the line) the people were nasty. I

    live in Hoboken and I’m from Jersey my family used Carlo’s all the time for sheet cakes and probably would have for wedding cakes but after that I wouldnt even buy a cookie from them.

      those people need to leave our town. I scream at those ass clowns to go back to morristown or whereever they came from.

      Rediculous!

      Um, all I can say is… That’s what happens when you make a $500 deposit for shitcake. [quote comment=”194438″]Carlo’s has really become rediculous.

    Their sole purpose seems to be to humor/entertain those of us who know better than to believe the hype. Maybe it’s just us but my husband, friends and I have a good laugh at these moronic sheep whenever we walk or drive by Washington street.

    This Carlos thing has made Hoboken a f*&$ing joke. I had a cake from Carlos last year at a birthday party. It was not worth the $400.00 my friend spent for it! I would have enjoyed a Betty Crocker cake for $1.50 over that piece of s&%t. Also, I hope CVS Pharmacy complains about the crowds in front of their store, that is just moronic.

    Whatever. Cash in while you can. I do not have a problem with it, though getting around on that corner is a pain. I go to physical therapy right next door, and I get there at 7:30 a.m. when I go during the week. I couldn’t believe it the other day, the line was already around the corner on a weekday at that time. The biggest problem is the jackholes taking photos and clogging up the sidewalk. I do not stop anymore, because you could wait all day for them to get their sh!tty photo done… I actually look towards the camera now, and give the grumpy face. Welcome to Hoboken!

    How much longer will this go on? When will it fizzle? I say by Christmas, the show gets canceled and the lines dry up.

        Absolutely. Let’s face it, Carlo’s is not fine baking – it is heavy handed. The best bakeries wouldn’t be attracting this huge line of mall-goers, so it goes hand in hand. The touch of a gorilla for a bunch of gorillas.[quote comment=”194488″]A can of Betty Crocker frosting tastes better than Fondant.

    That’s an insult to gorillas.

    I’m happy their business is doing so well, anybody who chooses to stand on line in the blazing hot sun deserves to suffer heat stroke. Let’s get real people, the large number of orders placed in there necessitates them to bake their goods earlier and must be decorated as such. TLC made him famous, good, but police barricades? Really. The other day I passed and I was in my car and gazed over and saw a man setting the timer on his camera to take a family shot in front of Carlos. The temperature was 103 degrees, my reason for being out in that heat was a doctor’s appointment or otherwise I would have had the sense enough to stay in my air conditioned apartment.
    As the saying goes, this too shall pass. 😛

    LMAO. Guess it’s just the out-of-towners that seems to be upsetting everybody. The locals aren’t standing on the lines, but they sure as hell look as stupid waiting on a line for 5 and 6 hours for the latest cel phones. Take a good look at yourselves before pointing fingers.

    As I was stumbling to the PATH this morning completely hung over, I saw the line outside Carlos’s and it was barely 8:30. Then I thought to myself how hilarious it would be if i stood right next to the line and just completely hang over vomited everywhere.

    I’m still chucking about the sight in my head right now. I think it’d be a nice warm welcome for them.
