Catch Cake Boss on Discovery Travel & Living

Cake what???? It's Cake Boss!!!

Cake Boss, what the heck is that you may ask. Well, if you have been watching Astro, chances are you might have caught some snippets of Discovery Travel & Living new series, Cake Boss which is debuting 3 March 2010.

Cake Boss features award-winning pastry chef and cake decorator Buddy Valastro. Buddy has created some of the most mouthwatering and elaborate cakes, including Britney Spears' circus-themed 27th birthday cake and a live sized NASCAR race car! Now he is geared to serve up the perfect recipe for TV entertainment on Discovery Travel & Living’s new series Cake Boss.

Witness the sugar-charged drama Buddy and his big Italian family experience as they manage their booming business at Carlo's Bake Shop in Hoboken, New Jersey. Buddy supervises a team that includes his mother, four older sisters and three brothers-in-law. And when one is working with family on a daily basis, this could be a recipe for disaster.

This show chronicles Buddy's over-arching desire to achieve his late father's dream of making Carlo's a household name and the obstacles that threaten to stifle his ambition. Shot mostly at the back of the store, Cake Boss offers a fascinating look at the behind-the-scenes process of creating edible art out of flour and sugar, churning out old-school recipes and remarkably modern cakes.

From dealing with Bridezillas and taking a trip to the museum to research a prehistoric cake, to creating wedding cake containing live birds and taking on the challenge of icing a cake while blindfolded, catch the intriguing mix of drama and frosting-topped cake galore with Buddy and his family on Cake Boss.

Catch Buddy Valastro on Cake Boss on Discovery Travel & Living (ASTRO Channel 707) every Wednesday at 1900 hrs (7:00 pm Malaysia Time), starting 3 March 2010. Encores Wednesdays at 0500 hrs (5:00 am) and 1300 hrs (1:00 pm), Thursdays at 0100 hrs (1:00 am) and Sundays at 0400 hrs (4:00 am), 1200 hrs (12:00 pm) and 1800hrs (6:00 pm).

Well, in conjunction with the launch of this series Capt'n Hook and I were invited to The Cooking House for a hands-on cupcake decorating session with Lu Soo Chee. Soo Chee demonstrated how to transformed a plain cupcake into a flower pot filled with flower(s)!

At first Capt'n Hook said he's not coming along since he's not interested with cake decoration but not sure what happened and he turned up! He was of great help kneading the fondant to the right consistency and shaped and roll the petals plus leaves out nicely :D
