Tourists Get Cake Blocked

Just days after a Huboken Reporter article on the midwestern tourists flocking to the ally behind Carlo’s Bakery in Hoboken, barricades have been installed blocking the Cake Boss fans from harassing “cast” members, also known as bakers and cake decorators.
For anyone living under a rock or in more civilized parts of the world, Carlo’s Bakery has risen to fame on TLC television series Cake Boss. The Hoboken bakery once known for mediocre pastries has since become the single most important tourist trap in Hoboken and possibly New Jersey.
With today being a quasi-holiday, the crowds were in full force lining up as far as observer highway. Local food trucks have taken advantage of the situation, with the Taco Truck, a hot dog stand and another food truck parked alongside the lines.
