And that is just the beginning, as I turned the pages I found myself immersed in what family means to Buddy. As I found myself reading the history of the "Cake Boss" I became immersed in the strong sense of history. I enjoyed reading about the first cakes Buddy was allowed to make, to his growing talent as a baker... to his first wedding cake where he really began to flourish.
(Who knew reading about the history of a bakery and a family could be so interesting?)
I thoroughly enjoyed this book. While I have heard of the show Cake Boss, I admit I have never watched it. I can assure you I am going to start now. This book jump started my heart for a family I did not know, and reading this book makes me want to know more.
I highly recommend this book for yourself or for a friend who enjoys baking. Gorgeous cover, fantastic pictures!
The stories are precious, although there will be few revelations for anyone who is a fan of the show.
Pages 1 thru 153 is is all about the cake boss not one recipe. Pages 154 thru 230 are fillers. It shouldnt take 2 pages to write a 4 ingrediant recipe for custard. Yes he was honest when he stated, "Never before published recipes." He was correct because he was making up the recipes as he publilshed the book. None of the recipes were tried and true. I believe I saw only 5 or 6 cake recipes if that. He stated he altered butter cream recipes from the Culinary Art School instead of altering his own. Come on cake boss what was the $25.00 for your book for you could have given us one unique recipe!!!
Then in his section where he states where he gets his supplies from....thats of no benefit either, he only list the 3 everyone knows about....Wilton, William Sonoma, and King Arthur.
If you want a bibliography about the Cake Boss thats what your buying. If you want to read the book go to the library and check it out but do not purchase it unless you like history books.
