Statue of Liberty birthday bash will feature cake from ‘Cake Boss’ Buddy

HUDSON COUNTY – Buddy Valastro from the popular Hoboken-based show Cake Boss has probably never baked for such a tall, old woman before; but on Oct. 28, he will present park officials with a special cake for Lady Liberty as she turns 125, according to a report from Crain’s New York Business.
The ceremonies on Oct. 28 will include a naturalization ceremony for 125 citizens, as well as a Macy’s fireworks display which, according to the report, is meant to replicate the statue’s original dedication ceremony on Oct. 28, 1886.
The story also states that the celebration will kick off a year-long, $27.3 million renovation to the interior of the Statue of Liberty, and that a new webcam is being installed in the statue’s torch to provide a streaming video of the New York harbor which will be available for viewing online. The party is being planned by the National Park Services, the report states. — Ray Smith
