Snooki Takes the Cake

No one ever wants to find a hair in their dessert, but for Cake Boss Buddy Valastro's latest celebrity client, it was a requirement. Jersey Shore's Snooki requested a cake for her beloved mother complete with a facsimile of her famous sky-high bouffant, as well as some fist-pumping club-goers.

No one ever wants to find a hair in their dessert, but for Cake Boss Buddy Valastro's latest celebrity client, it was a requirement. Jersey Shore's Snooki requested a cake for her beloved mother complete with a facsimile of her famous sky-high bouffant, as well as some fist-pumping club-goers. "She wanted the poof on it," laughs Valastro, who designed half of the cherry cake for Snooki's conservative mom and the other for her flamboyant daughter. "It's kind of a Jekyll and Hyde cake."

Snooki, however, was far from a monster. "She is such a sweetheart. And what a great family! She wanted to come on Cake Boss to show how tight-knit they are," says Valastro, who has no problem with Shore's depiction of his ethnic roots. "A lot of people take it more literally than I do," he says. "I look at it as entertainment."

In fact, Valastro — a Jersey Shore partier in his youth — would love to appear on the show. "It'd be like a throwback episode. I could try to squeeze into a pair of my old Cavaricci's and go out with my buddies!" Now that'd be a Situation.

Cake Boss airs Mondays at 9/8c on TLC
