Confections of a Rock Star Bakery in Asbury Park open yet?

About a month ago, we went to Toast for breakfast in Asbury Park when we saw that Bobby Flay was filming his new show , "3 days To Opening" . When we last drove by, it hasn't opened yet. Does anybody know if it has opened yet?

Address to Toast is:

516 Cookman Ave
asbury Park, NJ

Confections is a few doors down. Sorry I didn't get the address! Last I saw, the windows were covered in paper.

        It's a bakery that's supposed to be opening in Asbury Park. Bobby Flay was out there filming "3 Days to Open".

          Toast Confections? Can't find any links to it...

            Nope... Confections of a Rock Star. Located near Toast in AP.


        The tv schedule is listed on the left of the page. No more info beyond that.

        1. She has a website, but no mention of a storefront that I can see, which leads me to believe they film 3 days before a few more months pass and they actually open...permit issues?

            Curlz, you delay an opening to beyond October (when the crowds finally go away), you're going to have a hard time staying in business.

            Timing is everything in this life. Opening a business in Asbury in the offseason is a death knell with their rents and foot traffic down.

            1. re: JustJake

              Totally agree with you...I was just speculating since the show is supposedly filmed 3 days before an opening!

          2. Can we get a few more bars in town, or did Mayor Johnson retire most of the liquor licenses that once were........not really interested in cupcakes and tarts....though a real good place and one that makes great chocolate would be welcomed - the Flaky Tart is a bit of a haul.
