Out of Towners love Cake Boss

2/20/2010:

I’m still amazed how a video production on the “TV Box” in your living room creates so much fame… But a roving Hoboken411 reader caught just one of the many Cake Boss moments in town on film…

Travel from miles away…

“Out of towners parked at 4th and washington with Carlo’s Bakery photos in hand to make their way to modeling chocolate heaven for hopes of fame and autographs. They arrived in a mini van with Connecticut plates. They put just an hour worth of quarters in the meter. With the lines at the bake shop its a certainty they will find a 30 dollar Hoboken souvenir upon their return.”

Connecticut residents come to Hoboken to visit Carlos Bakery and Cake Boss - Out of Towners love Cake Boss

The bakery @ Shop Rite has better cake than the Cake Boss. Any stupid prick that is pathetic enough to wait hours for a piece of mediocre cake should be shot. Not to mention that if you have ever watched the stupid show like I did when absolutely nothing else was on, the way he makes the cakes are completely toxic and dangerous to someones health.

He packs cheap poundcake around plywood and plastic among other garbage just to keep the cake in place. In one episode he cut and melted PVC pipe and then rinsed in quickly in a sink before packing cake around it. Nice work, so when you get cancer or ill from eating pieces of plastic and melted plastic then you can say hey the Cake Boss killed me.

It will be interesting to see how the out of towners that are waiting on line at Carlos will mix with the drunks from out of town on March 6th. Since there a lot of families with kids waiting on line at Carlos I’m sure they will be horrified at the behavior of the people “celebrating” St. Patrick’s day in Hoboken. This should reflect well on Hoboken.

Georgio’s on Washington between 11th and 12th not only has good pastries, real Italian cookies, but also homemade ice cream cake. This is an individual who came from Italy, has his daughter’s work there and has real italian traditions.The Hoboken Historical Committee prepared abooklet about his history here in Hoboken some 50 years ago.
I had them prepare some 300 minature pastries for my daughter wedding because my family would of never have gone for the pastries at the catering country club and I have Irish ancestors.

Amazing how watching the “Cake Boss” can make a cake so unappetizing.
