Buddy Valastro, star of “Cake Boss,” was challenged to create a New Jersey-themed cake to run in line with the theme of the Inaugural Gala, a “Taste of New Jersey.”

The inaugural cake, complete with scenes from the Jersey shoreline, the New Jersey Turnpike, and replicas of both Prudential Center and Carlo’s City Hall Bake Shop, measured 8-ft. long by 4-ft. deep by 4-ft. high. Made up of multiple flavors, Valastro included a blueberry swirl portion, celebrating one of the state’s most well-known fruits. The cake was cut and offered to attendees of the Inaugural Gala, as well as to fans in attendance for the Devils’ game the following night against the Florida Panthers.

“We were thrilled when we heard such a well known, successful New Jersey business would take part in this historic event at the Rock,” said Jeff Vanderbeek, Chairman and Managing Partner of the Devils. “Buddy’s cake, and the presence of the ‘Cake Boss’ series, made the night even more memorable.”

“I was truly shocked to be asked to create the cake for the Governor’s Inauguration at Prudential Center,” Valastro said. “I consider myself a Jersey boy through and through and to do something for the highest ranking member in the state, at such a beautiful arena, was an honor and privilege.”Cake Boss: The Stories and Recipes from Mia Famiglia
