We wanted to make the most of our trip so we hopped the PATH train over to Hoboken to visit “The Cake Boss”!

Here’s a few tips if you’re thinking of planning a visit of your own:

Weekdays and Mornings

For the shortest waits weekdays and mornings are your safest bet! We stopped by the store on a Saturday afternoon and the line moved fast. There is usually at least one family member in the store and sometimes you’ll get lucky and see everyone!

Bonus: They just finished remodeling the Hoboken store last week – it’s gorgeous!

Take a Cake Decorating Class

Book in advance, they fill up fast! We were so jealous of the students in the cake decorating class. How bad do I want to roll out fondant and wrap it around a cake? Pretty bad. We’ll do this next time for sure!
