Quick Funny Story: Rafik and I drove to NYC over the summer, and as I was driving into Manhattan, right before the Lincoln Tunnel, I saw the sign for Hoboken, NJ. I’ve driven past it, oh 10 or so times in the past, but this time, it clicked: Hoboken = Cake Boss. While Rafik had some business to attend to, I researched everything I could about visiting the bakery (in the Starbucks on 65th and 3rd) so that on our way home we could stop.
We did the whole thing, the driving in circles to find a space open up in front of the bakery, the waiting in line for two hours while people cut ahead (we were the LAST people allowed in line before they closed it) and while CVS got annoyed at all of the people, the crowding into the bakery even though Budddy and Family were in Italy filming the season finale, spending an arm and a leg on some good ole’ fashioned Italian bakery goods, eating cannoli’s on the drive home through the Stench (an endearing term) of Hoboken, etc. All I wanted was lobster tails, but because we were last inside, they barely had any cupcakes left! Go figure! Tells you how good they are! But I got a picture of the stairs that they dropped a cake down ;-)
It was COMPLETELY and TOTALLY worth it though, I love Cake Boss! It was all a memory I won’t forget (and too, the stuff we did get was really fantastic, better than my Italian bakery at home, which is really sayin’ something)
Needless to say, I have those totally corny pictures of the front of the bakery on my computer. SO. When I was looking through my computer and stumbled upon them…..
