Up Close with @Cake Boss

photo 1Those who know me, or those who follow me on Pinterest, or Instagram, know that a secret talent of mine is decorating cakes and cupcakes. In fact, I have now become the mom who is best known for the cakes that I create for my childrens’ birthday parties. I thoroughly enjoy decorating birthday cakes for fun and I am always looking at ideas and products that will help me achieve my desired designs.

Enter Buddy Valastro. Buddy, aka the Cake Boss, is well-known for his over the top cakes and pastries. He is someone I have always looked up to when it comes to this creative side of mine. So, when I was invited to check out some of his newest products for decorating cakes, cookies, and more, I jumped at the chance.photo 1 (7)
While my son got to decorate a cupcake of his own with Buddy’s kids, I got to test out the wonderful new collections of easy to mold fondants, icings, cake mixes (which taste exactly like the cakes found at Cake Boss Cafe and Carlo’s bakery), and even his new holiday themed fondant tools. Cake Boss also has k-cups! Now, my daily k-cup of choice has become the Chocolate Cannoli Coffee from Cake Boss (though Buddy mentioned his favorite was the Dolce de Leche k-cup). I guess that means you’ll have to try them both to decide for yourself!
There are so many awesome new products that Cake Boss Brand has to offer, and I’m excited to test them all out. The Winter Cake Kit makes cake decorating a breeze. photo 2 (5)The kit comes with 25 decorating tools, such as easy to use plunge cutters, extra disposable icing bags, and how-to instruction guides with photos to help. It is so much fun to use that I am already beginning to plan our holiday dessert menu. With Cake Boss Cake Kits anyone can become a master cake decorator.
It was really great being able to meet Buddy and his family, and even more exciting to be able to get so wonderful cake decorating tips from the Master, himself. I can now say without hesitation, that if you’ve ever had an interest in decorating cakes (or are already an amateur like myself), these products are a must-have in your kitchen.
