Cake Boss: Stories and Recipes from Mia Famiglia - Buddy Valastro I adore the Cake Boss show on television, so this book is a natural extension. This is more than another cook book, it is recipes intertwined with his family history and life. This memoir is the cake and the recipes are the frosting. I loved the detail about his life and learning more about his mother. She is the spark of that show and I love how she rides Buddy. I was a little disappointed that she didn't force Buddy to finish high school, but some kids aren't cut out for school. Buy the book for the recipes and enjoy the story!
