Been there a few times, and luckily when I went there was no line. If you go during the week, you should be fine. It's an OK bakery, but mostly a name. I do recommend the Pignoli cookies though.

Seconded! I think they're good "TV personalities" and viewers who enjoy watching their antics feel like they "know" them, which keeps their bakery popular. But their stuff just isn't that tasty, and Buddy's cake talents are blown WAY out of proportion. He may be the cake "boss" but I've seen more creative work by the people making 10 bucks an hour at our local Publix.

We've been there several times. Go in the morning or later in the day during the week. One day we got there around 5ish and they were actually filming - I had stopped there after being in the City to get a small cake for my DD, since we had taken the train in from Hoboken.

The cakes are good, but, as others have said the pastries are ok. We have a local bakery that has much better pastries and it's only 10 minutes from my house!

Most of what I have seen isn't even "cake." It is mostly "cereal treats."

Yes.. at what point does it stop being a cake? If I want a scuplture I will buy one!

I had a piece of one of their cakes ( a simple sheet cake)... very sugary... like you could feel the granuals on your tongue. Reminded me of cakes I had 40 years ago, when I was very young...

I liked the show where he cooked family recipes much better...

I am born and raised in Hoboken. I am still living here. He use to make such great things. Since the show it has gone down hill. If you are coming and want to get in fast, I could meet you up there. Anyone from Hoboken gets right in without waiting on line.

Glad I read this thread! My DD8's birthday is coming up (she's a huge fan) and I was going to get her a cake from there. After reading this thread, I think I'll pass.

If you want to try a "Cake Boss" cake, they now sell them at BJ's Wholesale Club ... They sell two different varieties and they are $19.99 ... I tried one for the heck of it and the buttercream frosting was way too sweet for me and the cake was very heavy too, IMO ... I honestly prefer the BJ's brand better than the Cake Boss brand ... (And Wegman's make the best cake out of them all) ...

I like their cakes, I just wouldn't make a special trip to go there. If they're served at a party, I'll certainly enjoy a piece.

I agree with most of what you said but he is talented and I know he has lots of talented people working for him but more creative work at PUBLIX...ah there I need to disagree.

I agree with this assessment of the baked goods but....there is something great about going. Not sure what it is as the customer service is some of the worst I have ever experienced. It may be the excitement of the crowd.

Anyway, I have been there 4 times. 3 times, I arrived at 8am or a little before and never had a wait. In fact, I got the parking spot directly in front of the bldg. Now, just this Saturday, we went and got there at 10am. We did not stay....there had to be 500 people in line. As the product is truly only OK- no way was I waiting.

I have seen the tour buses start to arrive around 8:30 so, be there before that. Have fun

On another point....Saturday, we went to NYC and the TKS booth had Mary Poppins for 50% off so, guess what we saw

I just started a part time job in the bakery at Wegmans, so I have to thank you for the compliment!

Take a picture of the front of the shop, then continue on Ultramarino's at 3rd Street and Willow. Much better pastries and cookies! I highly recommend the yucca bread, too!

If you're hungry for real food, Zafra is right next door.
