Meet Buddy

Buddy Valastro is a fourth-generation baker born into the business owned & operated by his parents. Countless hours were spent in the bakery where his father, Buddy Sr., a master baker, taught Buddy everything about baking and running a business. They dreamed that together, they would make Carlo’s Bakery a household name.

After the tragic loss of his father, Buddy poured all of his energy into the bakery and continued to pursue his father's dream. His father’s recipes and Buddy’s innovative decorating have taken the business above and beyond his father’s wildest dreams.

In his 55,000 sq. ft. state-of-the-art facility, Buddy and his staff whip up thousands of wedding cakes, specialty cakes and delicious Italian pastries. His award winning designs have been featured in countless bridal and baking magazines. Carlo’s Bakery has garnered attention from a variety of media outlets, including The Rachel Ray Show, Brides Magazine, Good Morning America, USA Today, Food Network, and The Today Show. Most recently, Carlo’s has received national recognition as the setting for TLC’s “Cake Boss,” the number one food program on cable television.
