The Cake Boss!

 Working at the American Cancer Society has provided me many opportunities to get involved in some great charity work through fundraisers and events. Being the foodie that I am, I jumped on the opportunity to become a committee member at the American Cancer Society's Taste of Hope tasting event. On May 2nd, 82 Mercer was packed with amazing restaurants from all over NYC and surrounding areas.

My favorite, of course, was the 100th birthday cake from Carlos Bake Shop in Hoboken, NJ.... you know THE cake boss, as in Buddy Valastro from TLC. Yes, that guy!! His team created an amazing four tier cake to commemorate the American Cancer Society's 100th birthday. It was absolutely beautiful.

Ashley and I after a successful haul into our office.
While I wasn't able to enjoy a slice, I did pick off a few pieces of the fondant confetti as my co-worker and I transported it back to our office after the event. And by transport, I mean we hauled the 75 pound cake into the back seat of someones car. I held onto that cake for dear life as we turned corners and hit every pothole NYC has to offer. I can happily say we made it safely back to the office and were able to share it with our residents at Hope Lodge. What a treat!
