South Bend, Ind. Before Cake Boss's, Buddy Valastro hits the stage at the Morris Friday night, he made an appearance at Kroger.
Avid fans arrived hours ahead of time to get a good spot in line. A smart move considering that line winded through the store and continued outside to Kroger's front sidewalk.
The Cake Boss signed his new cook book and gave out lots of hugs to everyone wanting one. Folks came camera ready, excited to capture one sweet photo with the boss.
“I watch his episodes every day, reruns and all,” says Mary Stout who was first in line. “Big fan, and I just want to meet him. I love it, he's my idol, I look up to him when I'm making my cakes.”
Buddy performs Friday night at 7:30, his latest book was released just last week.
