For Buddy Valastro, 37, mixing eggs, sugar, butter and flour mean 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 TLC TV show, cake boss
In between spending time with his wife Lisa and their four children and filming three shows for TLC (Cake Boss, Next Great Baker and Kitchen Boss) Buddy has added a writer credit to his repertoire. Buddy released his first book Cake Boss, Stories and Recipes from Mia Famiglia (Free Press) in November 2010. That same month, he also embarked on the “Bakin’ with The Boss Tour,” a live interactive event where he created cakes and shared stories from his TV series and his colorful Italian family.
