I may not be a baker but I have always been a fan of Buddy Valastro and an avid watcher of the Cake Boss.
I love seeing how he whips up magic in his kitchen whether they’re simple cupcakes or epically gigantic cakes in various designs and concepts.
Last year, I was able to see him up close and personal when I got invited to the TLC Masterclass at Shangri-La Hotel at the Fort in BGC.
I was absolutely starstruck!
During the masterclass, I even took down a couple of notes as Buddy shared a good number of tips which I know will be very helpful in my daily life.
“When I started learning, I did everything by hand.”
“If you are baking and piping eclairs, it’s the same thing as piping a cake. It’s about learning… muscle memory. At the end of the day, I feel good.”
A really fun TLC cupcake Masterclass with Cake Boss himself!
Yesterday, I was able to see him again in person for the 2nd time in an exclusive cupcake-decorating workshop! A Masterclass with Cake Boss himself! It was held at the same venue as last year – Bonifacio Hall of Shangri-La Hotel at the Fort.
It was another intimate event wherein I delightfully saw familiar faces again from last year.
During this wonderful session, Buddy made the rounds checking each one’s creation and I kinda felt really embarrassed with the cupcake designs I came up with. Haha!
I’m no baker but I tried playing around with the piping bags. This is just my second time to pipe some icing to decorate my own cupcakes!
I tried! I tried!
Not bad! 😂
The Cake Boss and The Cupcake Boss!
If you want to see the Cake Boss & Chef Luke Nguyen, host Patty Lee & Sharon Huang of TLC’s Fun Taiwan, and comedian Eric Neeman, head over to the TLC Festival which is happening today at Bonifacio High Street from 10am onwards!
