I will dedicate this post to Buddy Valastro, who I consider is a great chef. I got to know him through his show (Cake Boss), and since then I had really liked his work, which consist in making cakes that are different every time, but all of them are spectacular.
He makes the pastry to be art.
Buddy was born in Hoboken, New Jersey, on March 3, 1977. He was raised in Little Ferry, New Jersey.
Valastro began working at his family’s business, Carlo’s Bakery at age 11, alongside his father. Valastro’s father died when he was 17 in 1994, and he succeeded him as the new “Cake Boss.”
He began running the bakery, it has come to fame due to the reality television series “Cake Boss”, which follows the operation of the business. The series premiered on TLC in April 2009. Due to the success of the show, the business has built a factory at Lackawanna Center in nearby Jersey City, which is used as additional space to construct specialty cakes, as well as the ability to make bake goods for shipment across the country. Due to the limited amount of space at the Hoboken location, the business was unable to deliver cakes beyond normal driving distance from the bakery. The bakery had conducted a limited trial internet sale of pies in October 2009, to test the viability of selling products on the internet. However, the team could not convince Valastro to make pies as he stated, “Pies are made of people. Cake Boss does not make-a pies!”
On May 24, 2009, the bakery opened its first branch location, called “Cake Boss Café”, at the Discovery Times Square Exposition at 226 West 44th Street in Times Square,in New York City. This location sells smaller Carlo’s Bakery goods, as well as Carlo’s Bakery and Cake Boss merchandise. On February 10, 2013, the bakery opened its first full-range branch location in Ridgewood, New Jersey.
In January 2012, as a result of the attention that the shop and the TV series had brought to the city of Hoboken, the Hudson Reporter named Valastro as an honorable mention in its list of Hudson County, New Jersey Hudson County’s 50 most influential people.
Buddy Valastro is important in bakery because he makes incredible wedding cakes, but also incredible cakes for all event with difficult but beautiful decoration on each of them. But don’t think that his cakes are all decoration because these cakes have a delightful taste.
And now , I will leave you a video of the best cakes that Buddy and his team had made.
