Buddy is AWESOME!!!! I am not only a very satisfied customer (for yummy Italian pastry & a great 1st b'day cake for my son last year!)- I was one of the lucky ones to attend the Meetup on Sunday with NJ Cake Decorators. He (& his crew/family) are so nice - very down to earth! As we all worked in his bakery (for quite a few hours!!!) his family/crew were there to help, often one on one - encouraging, joking & sharing. Buddy gave a personal step by step lesson on his beautiful roses. He is completely approachable & makes you feel at ease - you felt like you could do it & he (& his crew) really wanted to help you do your best.
In my opinion, even with the TV "fame", Buddy is a guy who hasn't forgotten where he came from & truly enjoys helping others.
Thank you Buddy - it was an honor to "play" at your shop! Very kind & generous - lots of fun!! Hope we can do it again!
PS: FYI - what he has said here about Kerry Vincent, is exactly what he told us...
