Cake Boss to Create Masterpiece for

Iowa 80 Truckstop 50th Anniversary

 

WALCOTT, IOWA -- 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 is
creating 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, is 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 will be served on Friday, July 11th at 2:30 PM in the Iowa 80 Truckstop Super
Truck Showroom as part of this year's Walcott Truckers Jamboree. The public is welcome
to come out to see the cake and have a slice. "I can't wait to see the cake," says
Moon Meier. "Working on it and planning for it has been fun! I heard they make the
best tasting cakes in the world! Nothing but the best for our customers."
