*The Cake Boss*

We were very fortunate to be able to meet Buddy and Joey and some of their other crew from the show the Cake Boss on TLC!  We are not sure when the episode will air or if we are going to be on it!  Read more about it below...

At mid-morning on Friday, 11 June 2010, the West Point Community celebrated the Centennial of the magnificent Cadet Chapel, which officially opened on 12 June 1910, following the last service at the Old Cadet Chapel that was located where Bartlett Hall/East Academic Building now stands. After that service, the assembled worshippers then climbed the hill to the new Cadet Chapel. A century later, another group assembled outside Bartlett Hall prayers, hymns and remarks before forming up and marching across Diagonal Walk, past Quarters 100, and up the hill to the Cadet Chapel. There an organ demonstration was provided by Mr. Craig Williams , organist; an historic overview was provided by Mr. Sherman Fleek, USMA Historian, hymns and prayers were offered, and four members of the Alumni Glee Club led the singing of “The Corps. Then, all exited the Cadet Chapel to view the arrival of a commemorative cake provided by &#8221Buddy the Cake Boss” especially for the occasion.
Although very few cadets were available to participate in the ceremony due to duty and leave, three should be singled out for commendation. CDT Robert Smith played the chimes during the march to the chapel, and after the ceremony, CDT Mike Dolan and CDT Kate Goodall stood out in the glaring sun and gradually disassembled the chocolate cake in the shape of the Cadet Chapel, complete with wedding party in blues, and passed out slices to all. Coincidently, Carlo’s Bake Shop from Hoboken, NJ, who delivered the cake, also has been in business since 1910. (Updated 22 June to add Photo slide show)
