“Cake Boss” centers around Buddy Valastro’s bakery, Carlo’s City Hall Bake Shop in Hoboken, N.J. In the episode “Freaks, Fast Food & Frightened Frankie,” which originally aired on Nov. 30, 2009, Valastro and his crew designed a cake for the Coney Island Circus Sideshow, using Roberts’ paintings as part of the design. The designs were printed on edible paper and then pasted onto a specialty food item and cut out. When Roberts received a call asking permission for her pictures to be used on the show, she allowed it even though she had never heard of the show.
Marie was invited to create special signage to guide the visitors at the Brooklyn Museum while areas of the museum were under renovation in January 2008
