ABOUT BUDDY:  For Buddy Valastro, 34, mixing eggs, sugar, butter and flour means a lot more than “making a cake.” As a fourth generation baker, it’s a constant source of pleasure, pride and creativity. Creating amazing cakes connects Buddy with the memory of his father Buddy Sr. and his extended Italian family history. His talent and passion for the family business, Carlo’s Bakery, has earned the straight-talking cake expert the moniker and TV show, Cake Boss. In December 2010, the spin-off series, Cake Boss: Next Great Baker premiered where Buddy challenged bakers from around the country to compete for a chance to work alongside the Valastro family at Carlo’s. Proven he’s a master when it comes to sweets, in Buddy’s third show, Kitchen Boss, he welcomes viewers into his kitchen to demonstrate he’s just as skilled at savory items, preparing his family favorite Italian recipes. Following the launch of his best-selling first book, Cake Boss, Stories and Recipes from Mia Famiglia (Free Press, Nov. 2010), Buddy continues to bring the pages of stories and tips to life on stage via his highly successful Bakin’ with The Boss Tour, and will be releasing a how-to book, Baking with the Cake Boss: 100 of Buddy’s Best Recipes and Decorating Secrets (Free Press, Nov 1, 2011). To give Cake Boss fans a real taste for what Carlo’s can offer, Buddy is building a 50,000 square-foot baking facility in Jersey City that will allow him to fulfill one of his (and his father’s) life long dreams – to ship his product across the country.
