Cake Boss Create Masterpieces for Iowa 80 Truckstop 50th Anniversary
When you are the World’s Largest Truckstop, you have to find a bakery that is up to the challenge of making a truly amazing cake. Carlo’s Bake Shop of Hoboken, New Jersey accepted that challenge and created a masterpiece cake for Iowa 80 Truckstop’s 50th Anniversay. “Every great party always has cake. We wanted to make sure that the cake itself was great too!” says Delia Moon Meier, Iowa 80 Truckstop senior vice president.
Mauro Castano, a pastry chef on the TLC Show hit show Cake Boss, was excited to be creating a replica of the World’s Largest Truckstop out of cake, icing & fondant. “We’ve done life-sized cars, we’ve done transformers that weighed thousands of pounds, but replicating the World’s Largest Truckstop is a whole new ballgame. We’re very honored Iowa 80 trusts us to make the cake for such a momentous occasion,” says Castano.
The cake was served on Friday, July 11th in the Iowa 80 Truckstop Super Truck Showroom as part of this year’s Walcott Truckers Jamboree.
