Buddy Valastro's Red Velvet Cake with Cream Cheese Frosting
"I wanted to celebrate the actual magazines," says Buddy Valastro, star of TLC's reality show Cake Boss, when asked about his cake, a trompe l'oeil tower of his favorite issues of O, The Oprah Magazine. "I wanted the cake to be whimsical, so I stacked the cake issues at an offset angle," says Valastro, a fourth-generation baker from Hoboken, New Jersey. "The result is crazy and fun." It's also delicious—layers of red velvet cake with classic cream cheese frosting, a beloved combination that appealed to everyone on staff who tasted it.
