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 cake boss.
He 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.
Buddy Valastro is an accomplished fourth generation baker born into the business owned and operated by his parents. Buddy grew up in Hoboken, New Jersey in an old-fashioned Italian family. He showed a flair for cake decorating at an early age.
At the age of 17, Buddy's father died. Suddenly, the only son had to take on the responsibilities of the patriarch. He thrived under pressure. With the help of his family, Buddy has taken Carlo's Bakery to new heights, including expanding the bakery outside of Hoboken for the first time. In 2013, Buddy and the famiglia opened three new bakeries, Carlo's Bakery Ridgewood, Carlo's Bakery Westfield, and Carlo's Bakery Red Bank, all located in New Jersey. Always thinking bigger and better, Buddy has plans for further expansion to new locations. Growing up in a family of incredible cooks, Buddy brought his family's classic Italian recipes to the table, opening his first restaurant, Buddy V's, in the Venetian Las Vegas.
