One of the centerpiece shows of the TLC network, a fifth season of “Cake Boss” recently
debuted on May 30. Viewers continue to celebrate the mouthwatering desserts and not-to-be-
missed Valastro family moments occurring in bustling Hoboken, NJ, home of Carlo’s Bakery,
celebrating its 101st anniversary this summer. In Fall 2010, Valastro launched a spin-off show
on TLC called “Next Great Baker” which was followed by “The Kitchen Boss” in January 2011. November 2011
will bring the release of Valastro’s second book, “Baking with the Cake Boss: 100 of Buddy’s Best Recipes and
Decorating Secrets.” In the book, the accomplished decorator shares everything a home cook needs to know
about baking as he takes readers through the same progressive training he had in his apprenticeship at Carlo’s
Bakery. Mixing intricate cake designs and innovative decorating techniques with his father’s traditional recipes,
Valastro has been featured in The New York Times, The Washington Post and USA Today. He has also
appeared on The Today Show, Good Morning America and the Oprah Winfrey Show.
