By now, almost everyone has heard of Buddy, The Cake Boss, or has had the chance to see his show on TLC. Since we are not far from the actual bakery, our family decided to take a trip, the first of many trips to Carlo’s Bakery-located in Hoboken, NJ.
It’s tough to go to Carlo’s without waiting in a line, but if you can get there during the week it’s not too bad. Expect to stand in a line that wraps around the corner if you visit on the weekend(of course it’s worth the wait).
Once you are inside of Carlo’s Bakery, do not worry about being rushed. The people inside could not be nicer. It is good to have an idea of what you want before you enter though, because all the delicious choices are endless!
Personally, our family went in to buy a cake and ended up with the cake, cookies, coffee cake, bread, coffee and other goodies. The scent of fresh cake and cookies is very overwhelming, so be prepared.
Another fun thing about visiting Carlo’s Bakery is that since it is family run, you will always see someone from the show working there. In the times we have gone, we have met a few of Buddy’s sisters, Little Buddy, Buddy’s mom, Frankie and his brother! They are great about photos and
always greet you with a smile!
There is also merchandise from the show available for purchase right inside the bakery.
If you are visiting the NYC area, or NJ you are in the Carlo’s Bakery area. Don’t miss your
chance to meet the Cake Boss gang and sample some of the yummies that Buddy has to offer!

Great Wolf Lodge Poconos Stay-N-Tube Camelback
Every winter my family loves to devote one day to snowtubing. I was pleasantly surprised to find out that Great Wolf Lodge Poconos combined with Camelback Ski Resort and offer a snowtubing amd ski package. The morning of our trip we swung by the GWL and picked up our tickets for snowtubing. We headed over to Camelback Ski Resort which was about 2 miles away from the lodge. Exchanging the tickets for our 3 hours snowtubing passes went on without a hitch and before you knew it the kids were in tubes and slip-sliding down the snowy mountain.
After snowtubing for 3 hours we warmed up with some nice hot cocoa as we sat around the fire pit. There is also a convenient cafe/bathroom right next to the snowtubing lanes for easy access.
It wasn’t long before we were back in our Kid’s Cabin Suite at the Great Wolf Lodge and getting ready for the waterpark. Snowtubing and Waterpark in one day! What else could you ask for?
