There are many ways to celebrate Hanukkah; lighting the candles, exchanging gifts and chocolate coins, cooking and eating delicious potato latkes, and so on. However, most people do not build gargantuan, 13.6 foot Menorahs out of 60,000 Lego building blocks as part of their typical holiday routine. However, if the excited students at Solomon Schechter Day School (SSDS) in Jericho have anything to say about it, maybe more people should.

Local Pastry Chef Competes on

Cake Boss Spin-Off on TLC

Just a scant few months after opening Taste, a specialty cake shop in downtown Syosset, pastry chef Corina Elgart had to close it, albeit briefly. Furthermore, she couldn’t even tell anyone why; a cryptic sign on the door only gave a hint as to the chef’s true whereabouts: “All I said was ‘closed for all good things, be prepared to set your DVR,” said Elgart of the sign.

Fortunately, now the community knows that Taste really was closed “for all good things” indeed; Elgart had to take a few weeks to film Next Great Baker, a spin-off program of the popular Cake Boss on TLC. Cake Boss chronicles the daily lives of Buddy Valastro, his family and coworkers at the famous Carlo’s Bakery in Hoboken, New Jersey, as they make some of the largest, most intricate specialty cakes on the planet. The winner of the Next Great Baker will get the opportunity to become part of the team at Carlo’s, in addition to $50,000.
