I love watching Buddy Valastro on Cake Boss! Did you happen to catch the premiere on TLC? It’s now in its third season. It’s a show that I do not miss! I mean really, who doesn’t love cake?

Here’s a bit of what we saw on tonight’s episode. Buddy and his staff at Carlo’s Bakery in Hoboken, New Jersey did a surprise replica cake of his wife Lisa for her 30th birthday bash. It was a beautiful cake, but it didn’t look at all like Lisa in my opinion, as Buddy’s wife is quite the stunner! We also saw Buddy and his team work on a Jersey inspired cake for incoming Governor Chris Christie’s Inaugural Gala. As usual he didn’t disappoint.

He spoke to our friends over at PopEater regarding their new season:

“The cakes are bigger, crazier. I think it’s a little simplified in a sense where I really wanted to be authentic to what happens in the bakery. I went and looked at the cakes that I have and just followed the cakes that were coming up week to week. So many, many cakes.”

As a biography, Bartolo ‘Buddy’ Valastro’s actual date of birth was difficult to find, but he is reportedly 33 years old. This lovable Italian was born into the world of baking, as his parents were the owners of Carlo’s Bakery, having bought the shop in 1964. He starting working very closely with his father in the bakery at a very young age, and learned valuable secrets and the art of baking from Buddy Sr. When his father passed away when Buddy was 17 years old, he stepped up and didn’t cave under pressure. The bakery has thrived and is now the center of attention as the focus on the TLC reality show Cake Boss.

Buddy is married to his beautiful wife Lisa and together they have three children – Sofia, Buddy Jr and Marco.
