The “Cake Boss” Delivers Transformers Bumblebee Camaro Cake to 2011 NYIAS
Posted by: admin In: Main ()
The 2011 New York International Autoshow is now well underway. On Wednesday morning just outside the General Motors display at the Javits Center (which features the Transformers 3 Bumblebee Camaro along with a huge Bumblebee Transformer), a crew with the TLC cable show “Cake Boss” unloaded a 2,000-pound cake molded into the form of the Bumblebee Camaro from “Transformers: Dark of the Moon.” The third installment in the Transformers series opens on July 1.
The cake, and the dozens of parents and children waiting for its arrival by the G.M. display, were being taped for a coming episode of the show. Joey Faugno, part of the family that owns Carlo’s Bake Shop of Hoboken, N.J., that made the cake for the show, broke down a bit of the cake’s construction.
It took about four days to make, and consists of vanilla pound cake with butter-cream frosting. And here’s a tip for at-home bakers: Rice Krispies treats were inserted to bind the cake at critical flex points.
