America’s favorite baker Buddy Valastro, the Cake Boss is coming to The Victory Theatre on August 5, 2012.

The Cake Boss: Bakin’ with the Boss Tour is a live interactive event in which Buddy Valastro will share the stories behind his hit television series and his colorful Italian family, answer audience questions, and give a live demonstration of the techniques that have made him one of the most successful and renowned cake artists in the nation.

This is going to be a fun event, which is why we have decided to present five fun reasons why we are looking forward to seeing the Cake Boss live at The Victory Theatre.

1. THAT DUDE SCARED THE CRAP OUT OF US AND THEN FED US CAKE!

It’s not every day that an Italian cake maker shows up at your house and pulls something out of the trunk that looks like it came straight out of a movie called ‘Goodfellas II: These Zombies Are Funny, How?’ Yet, as terrifying as a cake topped with blood, brains, and diseased vermin might be, Buddy assures us that it tastes good because after all, it’s cake. Forget about it!

2. RACE CARS ARE PRETTY COOL – A RACE CAR CAKE IS SHEER GENIUS!

The words High Performance and Cake usually do not go hand in hand. But the Cake Boss found a way to make it happen using 20,000 pounds of vanilla pound cake, some rice crispy treats, and an engine hoist. Seriously, the motor on this NASCAKE actually had to be lowered into the car using a makeshift engine hoist – heavy chains and all!

Incidentally, the regulation weight on an actual NASCAR is approximately 3,500 pounds.

3. WE LIKE TO PLAY POOL – WE LIKE TO EAT CAKE MORE!

While the game of pool can be a lot of fun to play, we imagine that a game involving a pool table cake and a drunken food fight between a room full of sports fans would be a lot more fun to watch.

It should also be noted that the pockets on Buddy’s pool table cake appear to be just the right size to conveniently hold six beers! Thanks Cake Boss!

4. MOTORCYCLES ARE FUN – EATING MOTORCYCLE CAKE IS AWESOME!

Although this may be the first cake ever made that requires safety equipment, we would not recommend trying to ride this thing. However, we’re almost certain that a couple slices of Buddy’s motorcycle cake is the equivalent to the rush one might experience while riding top speed down a gravel road without a helmet.

Perhaps the new Cake Boss slogan should be – Live to Eat Cake, Eat Cake to Live… or something like that.

5. MAKING CAKES LIKE THIS IS NO PICNIC

While a picnic-style cake does seem to borderline on the edge of insanity, we cannot help but be fans of the Cake Boss. After all, we feel like anyone who can make us crave an order of Buffalo wings using some flour, sugar, and an airbrush set should consider running for the presidency.

Buddy, you have our vote!
