Willie Nelson’s 80th birthday cake featured on Cake Boss tonight
Because he knows a little something about getting baked.
Cake Boss on TLC returns for a new season starting December 30, and a Texas icon will be featured on one of two premiere episodes.
Buddy Valastro and his Carlo’s Bakery team are asked to make a special cake for Willie Nelson’s 80th birthday. (Because — obvious joke alert — Willie knows a little something about getting baked, am I right?)
In the episode, which will air at 8:30 p.m. Central time, the team makes a cake replica of Willie’s famous guitar, “Trigger,” ordered by Willie’s daughter, Amy Lee. The team is tasked with delivering the cake to a special birthday concert at the Hard Rock Cafe in New York City.
Willie turned 80 on April 29.
