Brides, I'm not a baker. So when I was invited to take a professional cake-decorating lesson from the pros at Carlos Bakery in Jersey City, New Jersey -- where the hit TLC show "Cake Boss" is filmed -- I leapt at the chance to learn from fourth-generation baker Buddy Valastro.
I have a confession: I don't like vegetables. As an adult, I understand their importance and the nutritional value they bring, but I just can't get over my childlike aversion to anything green and slimy.
These days, gluten-free baked goods and pastas can't be distinguished from their wheat-based brethren. We've come a long way from the days of rice cakes and dried fake bread! Visit these bakeries, restaurants and shops and feast!
