Oki let me give you guys an idea of who they are. Carlo's Bake Shop is a family orientated business owned by Buddy Valastro. Buddy learnt the techniques and tricks from his father, who in turn learnt his skills from his father. Count how many generations that is. Today, Buddy is one of the most successful cake artist in United States. The bakery is packed with his mother, four older sisters, three brothers-in-laws and the rest of the crew. They are a very vocal family, tons of screaming and shouting. Despite all these, you can see their love for each other, their passion, determination and drive for what they do.
Leaning Tower of Pisa Cake:
Grucci Fireworks Cake:
Donna Grucci and Felix Grucci Jr. of Grucci Fireworks ordered a cake for the Grucci patriarch's birthday memorial. Look at the size and the details in this cake. Its INSANE right!! Tell me one bakery in Singapore that can make cakes CLOSE to this.
Fire Truck Cake:
The Harrison Fire Department requested a cake as a thank you gift for the retired firefighters at he NJ Firemen's Retirement Home. The cake had working lights, siren and smoke created from water vapor. Crazy isn't it!! Its feels more like a toy than a cake. LOL
Wedding Cake with Birds:
A vintage wedding cake. Do you see the transparent cage near the bottom of the cake. Two white doves will be placed into the cage just before the wedding. During the wedding ceremony, the love couple will release the doves from the enclosure. Aw.... so beautiful. Once again, everything on this cake (except for the cage) is edible.
Race Car Cake:
The Retail Bakers Association of America (RBA) requested a cake for the annual American Retail Bakery Exposition in Charlotte, N.C. This is the largest cake Buddy and his crew has ever made. Can you see the two tiny head near the back of the car. Those are real human ok, not figurines!! Look how big the cake is! You can drive in it.
Altamura Wedding Cake:
Couture Fashionista Cake:
Girls... Prepare to drool!

So if you people plan to go to New Jersey for a holiday, remember to go to Carlo's Cake Shop! Their customers claim the cakes and pastries taste heavenly.
