"Cake Boss" is an enjoyable reality show that has combined a love of family and cake decorating all into one and the cast of characters makes me feel right at home. There seem to be no holds barred, though at times, there might be just a wee bit of drama added for special effect. Regardless, this is the presentation of the daily life of an incredibly gifted baker, cake decorator, and business man. The show is currently being seen on TLC, which also gives us "Ultimate Cake Off". This is a 2-disc DVD set that contains 13 episodes plus some great bonus features of deleted scenes, an episode of "Ultimate Cake-Off", and "Mary's Moments" in which one of Buddy's sisters (who is a character all in herself) has a couple of prima donna moments.
Buddy Valastro is the "boss" of Carlo's Bakery located in Hoboken, New Jersey. His father, Buddy Sr, bought it from the original Carlo, an immigrant from Italy, who brought the joy and hard work of Italian baked goods to this neighorhood way back when. Before his father passed away, Buddy made a promise to his dad that this bakery would become famous. He definitely kept that promise and you can't help but know that his dad must must be so proud of Buddy and the entire Valastro family. While the guys work in the back of the bakery making the cakes and pastries, the girls work the storefront.
The secret to that success? Family........because no one else is going to watch your back. You know that the Valastro's have a sincere interest in this bakery and in taking care of their customers. Yes, they may argue and yell and have some stressful days but that's a business for you and at the end of the day, they're still family.Read more ›
Right. Secondly, Buddy, in his own family business way, is a good leadership role model. He fundamentally cares about his employees (kind of has to because most are his family). Second, he uses fair judgment (most of the time. I couldn't believe he let Mary back in after what she did; forget which season that was). Third, he understands the business and tries to motivate the staff to understand it as well. On some it rubs off, like his brother-in-law Mauro, and on some it falls off. (I'll let you figure out who I'm talking about.)
Ultimately, it's a great show and I can usually find a good lesson in there for my kids. What more could a father ask?
If you really want to see something crazy, then go and watch Season 1, Episode 5. You will see one of the craziest brides ever.
