Buddy Valastro, star of CAKE BOSS and owner of Carlo's Bake Shop in Hoboken, New Jersey, tells the story of his rise to baking fame and the history of his family bake shop, established in 1910.

CAKE BOSS also presents 37 recipes for his famous shop's most sought-after pastries, pies, cupcakes, and cakes. This is the story of how Carlo's Bakery came to be, how Buddy - with his mother and sisters - made a reality out of his father's dream of making their beloved local bakery famous around the country. As on the show, the day-to-day drama of Buddy working with his mother, three sisters and brother-in-laws, mixed with his old-world recipes and techniques, makes this an incredibly special memoir.
