Cake Boss Wedding Special

In Buddy Valastro’s own words, the orders come ‘from God, to me, to you.’ That gives you some idea of how he runs Carlo’s bakery in Hoboken, New Jersey. But don’t expect any Gordon Ramsay-style acid-spitting here, because Cake Boss is mostly good natured fun. There might be blow-ups, there might be cake thrown on the floor or bags of sugar pummelled in a sudden rage, but at the end of the day family is family, and that’s what ties the bakery (and the show) together. 

Besides which, anyone who’s watched any amount of Cake Boss already knows that Buddy is a big softie at heart. He has plenty of opportunity to explore that soft side in the ‘wedding special,’ which chronicles all of the cakes he has produced for blushing brides throughout the show’s history. 

Let’s make that point perfectly clear: The wedding special is comprised of material from the seasons proper, so if you already own the entire show on disc then there isn’t a lot to get your mouth watering again here.  

It’s basically like a highlights reel, with a sugary romantic flavour to it. In one episode Buddy takes on the mammoth challenge of sculpting 50 wedding cakes in one frantic weekend; in another, he is faced with the daunting prospect of creating a single cake that caters to the very different likes and requirements of 14 separate couples.

And of course it wouldn’t be a wedding-related special without ‘Bridezilla,’ the customer who spectacularly defaces her own wedding cake to teach Buddy a lesson in design. 

As well as the sentimental or stressful moments, there are also the funny ones, such as when out-of-sorts delivery boy Anthony asks out workmate Tatiana, risking the wrath of her overly protective father. 

If you haven’t seen Cake Boss before, the wedding cake special gives you all of the highlights of seasons gone by in one package. All the best bits are there: the tantrums, the family connection, the extraordinary creations. For long-time fans, though, it’s all material you’ve seen before, with nary a special feature to recommend it.
