Cake Boss Tour

by Cindy

The Cake Boss came to Evansville last night and I was in the audience.  There was quite a crowd and it was a very diverse group with women, men and children.  There were vendors set up on the second floor showing and giving away samples of their tasty cakes and delights.  There was one cake that was especially Cake Boss worthy and it was done really well.  It showed many important features about Evansville. 
 All of the samples were delicious and right on spot.  I also took a picture of a cake that I thought was super cute and hope to copy myself someday.   

The Cake Boss came out a few minutes late just like a rock star.  He's looks exactly like he does on TV.  He talked to the audience about his beginnings and how he got started in the business when he was just 17 years old.  His father was sick so he quit high school (hoping later to return to finish high school when his father recovered)  and he started there by filling in for his father at the bakery.  His father didn't recover and that's how it all began.  It was a very inspiring and motivating story.  He said he's working harder now than ever and that he loves what he does.  He used audience participants to have 3 competitions, with the last prize being a cake from his bakery, which is going to start selling cakes nationwide soon.  I would love to taste one of his cakes, but I'm sure they are a little too pricey for my pocketbook. 

I do love watching cooking and baking shows on television so I think I'll put him back on my DVR list because he is a lot of fun to watch.
