"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.
