NY1 is celebrating 20 years this week with a big party cake, New York-style.
The cake masters at Carlo's Bakery in New Jersey created a culinary tribute to the five boroughs.
The yellow and chocolate creation, which was brought to NY1's Chelsea studio, was adorned with iconic images of the city.
It took seven people two-and-a-half days to sculpt the cake, which includes a Yankee Stadium base, the Brooklyn Bridge, a Staten Island Ferry boat and a miniature Unisphere from the 1964 World's Fair in Queens.
Everything on the cake was ready to eat, except for the TV monitor on top.
"We were trying to see, how can we personalize this? How can we say 'Happy Anniversary' or whatever? So we then we figured out how to put the little panel there and have the video stream of the top things that happen here at the station over 20 years and I think it came out pretty cool," said Mauro Castano, the head decorator at Carlo's Bakery.
Last week, the Empire State Building was lit in the signature yellow and blue colors of NY1 to commemorate our first two decades.
