 Buddy Valastro Biography

Buddy Valastro is one of the most successful and renowned cake artists in the United States. Master baker of Carlo's City Hall Bake Shop in Hoboken, New Jersey, Buddy is the star of TLC's hit series "Cake Boss," which chronicles Buddy's over-arching desire to achieve his late father's dream of making Carlo's Bake Shop a household name with or without the help of his family.

Valastro supervises a team that includes his mother, four older sisters and three brothers-in-law. And when you're working with family on a daily basis, there is bound to be a lot of drama. The Valastros know drama but at the end of the day, they also know love.

A fourth-generation baker, Valastro was born into the business owned and operated by his parents. At an early age, Buddy showed that he was a natural by displaying his amazing talent for baking and cake decorating. Aside from that passion, he loved spending quality time with his father as his apprentice. Countless hours were spent in the bakery where Buddy's father, a master baker, taught him all his old world secrets of baking. They were best friends and dreamed that together, they would make Carlo's Bakery a household name.

Unfortunately, at the age of 17, Buddy experienced the loss of his father, which led to more responsibilities being placed on Buddy's shoulders. He showed how well he could shine under pressure by continuing to produce quality work. With the help of his family, Buddy has taken Carlo's Bakery to new heights. His father's recipes and Buddy's innovative decorating and sugar art techniques have taken the business above and beyond his father's wildest dreams.

In his 10,000 square foot state-of-the-art facility, Buddy and his staff turn out thousands of wedding cakes, specialty cakes, and pastries weekly. His award winning designs have been featured numerous times in different bridal and baking magazines. Carlo's Bakery has also been featured in The New York Times and numerous other national publications. Buddy and his cakes have also been featured on The Today Show, Good Morning America, The View, and HBO's hit series, The Sopranos. Some of his best recipes are featured in his book, Cake Boss: Stories and Recipes from Mia Famiglia.

By uniting time-honored quality with modern innovative techniques, Carlo's Bakery is rated among the best. Their distinct old world taste is hard to come by. This is what sets Buddy apart from other sugar artists. Buddy hopes to one day pass on his passion and knowledge to fifth generation members of the Valastro family and continue the Carlo's Bakery legacy.
