Tonight's second episode of "Cake Boss" was titled "On the Road Again." In the bakery workshop, Buddy announces to his crew that they have to make a birthday cake for Willie Nelson. Willie will be 80 years old, and it has to be special. Willie’s daughter Amy came in to order the cake. “Trigger” is his favorite guitar, with several signatures on it of people he worked with. Willie’s birthday party will be at the Hard Rock Café and Buddy can’t wait to go and deliver the cake on Thursday, meet him and listen to his concert.
This is a special week for the family; Mama Mary comes home from Israel, and Buddy’s daughter Sophia will be ten. She is daddy’s little princess and wants a phone for her birthday. Buddy’s wife, Lisa is not so sure. She loves animal prints and makeup, so Buddy has the perfect cake in mind for her party. As they watch her practice her gymnastics, Lisa and Buddy have different opinions on the phone idea.
Back at the bakery, Buddy is very excited to meet Willie Nelson, but Mauro; his brother-in-law reminds him that he will not be meeting Willie this time. Lisa is being honored by the “Make a Wish Foundation” for her philanthropy that night. As Buddy asks his bakers what he should do, Anthony tells him to meet Willie, but Anthony is not married. As Buddy tries to think about making both events, but it will take a miracle.
As the guitar cake is being constructed, Buddy makes Sophia’s birthday cake with animal print on a pink cake, with makeup and lipsticks, it is awesome. As Sophia’s party is going on at the Valastro house, Mama Mary comes rolling in her wheelchair. The children are thrilled to see her, and she is in great spirits. The final verdict as to how well the procedures worked, will take a few weeks. When Buddy handed Sophia the phone, she squealed with delight.
The crew is about to deliver Willie’s cake, and are bringing a cardboard cutout of Buddy along to get a photo of absent Buddy with Willie Nelson. The guitar cake is unbelievable, and even had smoke coming out of the center hole.
Willie loved the cake, especially the smoke. As he met with the gang from the bakery, Buddy was at the dinner with Lisa, like a good hubby on this episode of "Cake Boss."
