Amazing dessert

A friend of mine picked up a few boxes of dessert. They are amazing, after two bites I was full but I ate the whole thing!! These are by far the best I have ever had in my life :)

We went to Carlos bakery because we love Buddy and Cake Boss. OK, they played bits of cake boss on a TV, but the bakery didn't have a real, family warm bakery feel. My grandson bought a 9.95 cupcake size red velvet cake that was a shell over a blob of cream cheese frosting....so most of it was wasted, as... More

We went to Hoboken on our way out of New York City to visit Carlo's Bakery. We Always watch The Cake Boss on TV. At approximately 10 am there was a queue of about 1 hour outside. We had to wait about half an hour to place our order. The pastries were very good.

More of an attraction than a bakery! The cheese cakes were good but everything else we tried was very mediocre. Since we had to stand in line for so long we figured we'd buy a bit of everything and we tried the cheese cakes, 3 types of biscotti's, 2 pastries, and a cake. Only the cheese cake was good, everything... More

My niece and I took a trip through Hoboken on our way out of NYC to visit Carlo's Bakery. She is a big fan of The Cake Boss and it was worth it to see how excited she was as we got close to the bakery. I've heard horror stories about the wait but we lucked out. There was no... More

I'll begin with saying that there was a queue to get into the bakery that went around the block and down the street! It was a 2-3 hour wait, but we decided to stay and made it a fun outing! We had caught the ferry over from Manhattan so we saw it as a fun experience and made the most... More

I admit, I was disappointed that no family member was on hand. Having said that, being an out of towner and having great Italian Bakeries in Montreal, I have mixed feelings about the pastries served up at Carlo's. The fillings for the cannoli and the lobster tails were great...but the cannoli filling had not trace of a ricotta taste...but good... More

When the Cake Boss first came out, this was a charming neighborhood bakery with cramped counters and wonderful baked goods. Now, its a stainless steel and glass corporate empire and the store smacks of "corporate branding". One of the most noticeable changes is the ATM machine in the store...sigh. The baked goods are still pretty good but the old world... More

Loved meeting Mary and seeing the original Cake Boss Bakery. Very long wait. Frosting on the cake/cupcakes was to die for, but cake was a little dry (dare I say it), but none the less delicious.
