Buddy Valastro may be known as "The Cake Boss" but he can whip up delicious dishes for every meal. In the video above, Buddy creates a simple parfait that can be a tasty breakfast or light dessert. First, get your ingredients together: fresh fruit (Buddy uses pears, apricots and figs), mascarpone cheese (a creamy Italian cheese), vanilla extract, two tablespoons honey, between 1/8 to 1/4 cup of milk or cream, and some chopped hazelnuts or almonds. Chop the fruit, and then combine all the ingredients except the nuts in small mixing bowl. Add the chopped fruit to a bowl or parfait glass and top with your mascarpone mixture and some nuts.

And be sure to steal Buddy's pro tip: Use your rolling pin to expertly crush your almonds or hazelnuts. Genius!
