One of the centerpiece shows of the TLC network, a fifth season of “Cake Boss” began airing on Memorial Day. 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, which celebrated its 102nd anniversary this summer. In addition, in December 2010, TLC premiered the spin-off series, “Cake Boss: Next Great Baker” where Buddy challenges bakers from around the country to compete for a chance to work alongside the Valastro family at Carlo’s. TLC’s “Next Great Baker” launches a new season on November 26th.
Buddy’s third and latest book, “Cooking Italian with the Cake Boss: Family Favorites as Only Buddy Can Serve Them Up” (November 6, 2012) introduces 100 of Buddy’s delicious, essential Italian-American recipes—from his grandmother’s secret dishes to his personal specialties he makes for his own children—with signature touches that make everyday meals into memorable family events. Buddy says, "Food is love, and my favorite family moments involve meals just like the ones I'm sharing here.”
