Last night we were gathering info for an upcoming post about Coney Island Circus Sideshow banner painter Marie Roberts when we got some scrumptious news: A new episode of Cake Boss featuring a cake decorated with sweet little replicas of Marie’s giant-size banners premiered last night on the Learning Channel. If you missed seeing it, as we did, tune in on Wednesday, December 2 at 8 pm or 11 pm or watch the episode on the Cake Boss’s website or here. In the meantime, enjoy the photos by Bruce Handy/Pablo 57, Norman Blake and Marie Roberts. That’s Marie snapping some photos above. We recognize her bangles! Stay tuned for ATZ’s post later today tomorrow on Marie Roberts’ banner art.

The Cake Boss is a reality show about Buddy Vlastro of Carlo’s City Hall Bake Shop and his family. We remember when they filmed this episode on a busy summer day in Coney Island. Now we’re sorry we didn’t stop by the sideshow for a piece of cake afterwards! The episode is titled “Freaks, Fast Food and Frankie.” According to the program guide: “The bakery heavyweights are challenged to an eating contest after they create a buffet-style cake for Major League Eating. Then one of Frankie’s biggest fears is exposed while making a cake for the Coney Island Circus Sideshow.”
