Every day, Breadsmith kneads and breeds made-from-scratch breads, honoring the practices of centuries-old French bakers. The delectable dough sculptures receive the royal treatment, with all delicate yeast bubbles bursting inside of a 6-ton stone-hearth oven. The oven's sweltering heat creates a cushy crust for American-style breads. In the presence of lightning-quick steam injections, European-style breads take on a crisp, crumb-dressed outer core. Daily bread offerings range from $3.95 to $8.50 a loaf and include French baguettes ($3.95), Russian rye ($5.95), sourdough ($5.25), raisin walnut ($6.95), and pepperoni bread ($8.50). Use today's Groupon to fill up the family with lusciously leavened loaves fresh from the oven—or wait for them to go stale and then wield them as harpoons during the next potato-soup hunt.

Inside Buttery Bake Shoppe, bakers spend their days crafting a range of homemade treats using only kosher ingredients. They create custom cakes, which they decorate for special occasions, or hearty loaves of bread that add a rustic feel to meals throughout the day. They are perhaps best known for their pastries and sweets, such as soft cookies straight from the oven or chocolate-covered brownies on a stick, which burst with rich flavors like a stock brokers' food fight.

Fusion Yogurt Lounge doesn't limit itself to providing just one kind of pick-me-up, offering frozen yogurt as well as smoothies and coffee. In addition to classic frozen-yogurt flavors, such as tahitian vanilla and dark chocolate made with three cocoa powders, the shop offers more creative flavors, such as island coconut, birthday cake, and moon pie. Guests can add a dash of protein powder to fruit smoothies for a quick boost or indulge in sweeter options, such as the chocolate-covered strawberry. For those in need of a caffeine jolt, staff members carefully grind coffee beans, then french press, rather than bench-press, them for rich, flavorful cups of coffee.

From dulce de leche to guava, eight fillings flavor Rachael's Cupcake & Café's scratch-made, preservative-free namesakes. They also make their way into regular-sized cakes, which the café’s team ices in vanilla merengue and molds into customizable shapes including mouse ears or a snare drum. Cakes and cupcakes share oven space with other baked goods including empanadas and artisanal bread such as panettone, an Italian favorite often munched around the winter holidays. Coffee in its hot, iced, and gaseous states makes up the core of the café’s beverage offerings, sharing space with natural juices and fruit-flavored milkshakes.

Draped in fondant flowers and bright swirls of buttercream, Buddy Valastro's cakes would catch anyone's eye?but that's especially true for fans of reality TV. The master baker and his visually stunning creations both star on TLC's Cake Boss, which has filmed at the Valastro family's Hoboken confectionery, Carlo's Bakery, since 2009.

Buddy's cakes have also won national notice beyond the show, including features in publications such as The Knot and Brides. And beyond designing delectable cakes for special occasions, Buddy shares his secrets through hands-on cake decorating classes, which are taught by his dedicated team of bakers at locations throughout New Jersey.

A cake decorating specialist for Carlo's Bakery, Gabby Parisi, talked to us about what it's like to attend the bakery's fondant cake decorating classes (buttercream cake decorating classes are also available).

Are the fondant classes beginner-friendly?

?People find fondant intimidating because the tools and know-how aren?t readily available, but when you come to the class, you realize it?s even easier than working with buttercream."

What types of decorations can students put on their cakes?

"We use water and a paintbrush to apply flowers, fall leaves, bows, and other shapes. It?s super easy once you know all the tricks?you can do almost anything [with fondant], it's really kind of magical. Buddy likes to describe it as the Houdini of cake decorating.?

Are classes available at all Carlo?s Bakery locations?

"Classes are available at our Morristown, Red Bank, and Ridgewood New Jersey bakeries as well as at our Jersey City/Lackawanna Cake Factory. There are no classrooms at our Hoboken, Westfield, or Las Vegas bakeries."

What?s the craziest cake ever made in Carlo's Bakery?

"I?m sure a lot of people will be familiar with the cakes from the TV show, Cake Boss. Buddy always says the craziest cake we?ve ever made was the Transformer, or the life-size Nascar cake."
