What do you think of this dragon cake? Swipe to see the inspiration from our client. This cake really pushed us to use some new materials (modeling chocolate dragon) and techniques (buttercream painting) but we think the results are fabulous!.

I am greatly remiss in not posting this sooner. It's been several months now, and I had intended to post this sooner, but we simply cannot let this go unacknowledged.
===========================

Prince Street Cafe & Bakery was saddened to hear of the passing of Rocco (Rocky) P. Scali. Many of you never met Rocky, but he was an important piece of Prince Street history.

Born in Calabria, Rocky emigrated to the US as a young child. Rocky went to work for the Dana’s grandfather, the founder of Prince Street Cafe & Bakery, when he was just 14 years old. He learned the craft of baking from Dana’s grandfather and made the many original Prince Street recipes throughout his more than 60 year career.

Some of Dana’s earliest memories are sitting in the tiny Prince Cafe kitchen in the North End, doodling on a prep table with a pasty bag, while Rocky churned out hundreds of pastries the bakery sold every day.

When Prince Street Cafe & Bakery first opened in Bedford, Rocky, having made the many recipes over a lifetime, was only too eager to come reconnect with Dana, and to help guide her on the myriad of issues we faced as a “new” bakery. Rocky spent a considerable amount of time in the bakery helping train Dana, Rob & Eric in the making of our many treats. When we had questions, or a recipe didn’t come out quite right, Rocky was there to analyze and help and to correct mistakes of technique.

While largely unknown to our many customers, Rocky was an instrumental part of the birth and growth of Prince Street Cafe & Bakery. But that was Rocky’s style. He always kept a bit of a low-profile, remaining largely in the back of the house, with only an occasional foray into the front of the house. When Buddy Valastro came knocking and offered to put us on TLC, Rocky did the preliminary interviews, but when it came time to film, Rocky politely bowed out, preferring his privacy.

Rocky was a prankster, and notorious jokester who always kept things light, no matter the pressures we were under. He was always highly opinionated about all the recipes, and when Dana tried to make a change or update a recipe for a more modern customer, Rocky was the first to remind Dana “that was NOT how her grandfather had made it.” There were more than a couple of disagreements over recipes, but in the end, there was so much love and respect for each other they always seemed to work out an agreeable compromise.

All of us at Prince Street Cafe & Bakery are saddened by Rocky’s passing and we will forever be grateful for not simply his expert tutelage, but for his friendship, kindness, wit and humor. Thank you Rocky, we will miss our “Ayatollah of Pasta Frolla.”

Our deepest condolences to his wife of over 60 years, Sally, and to his children and grandchildren. Rocky was a good and decent man and will be missed by all.

May God hold you in His hand, until we meet again. We love you Rocco! God bless you our friend.

Prince Street was honored to cater the Boston MedFlight Holiday Party last night in its new hanger at Hanscom. The party was a great success and everyone seemed to have a great time. Right at the end of the party though, the Sikorsky helicopter had to launch on another mission to try and save someone's life. The men & women that work at BMF are heroes, one and all, a team that together does everything in their power to save critically endangered lives every day. It is an honor for Prince Street to serve these heroes. A couple of photos of the transformed hanger, and a video of the Sikorsky as it launched. Sometimes, those angels you see descending from heaven, are a Boston MedFlight crew. Thank you Boston MedFlight for all you do for the people of New England!
