It's safe to say that baking is in Buddy Valastro's blood. He learned the ins and outs of his family's bakery while growing up there and working alongside his father, Buddy Sr. Today, Buddy specializes in over-the-top cakes and authentic Italian pastries. In addition to six in New Jersey, Carlo's Bakery has locations in New York, Connecticut, Pennsylvania, Florida, Texas and Nevada.
