Buddy Valastro, owner of Carlo’s Bakery and star of the TLC series “Cake Boss” has finally done it. He gave his recipes to a production facility in New Jersey do they could turn his family secrets into a cake recipe that can be mass produced and sold to supermarkets. Soon the whole country will find out what its like to eat a cake made by the “Boss”.
The new line is going to be shipping to stores this summer with the first cake being called the “Badda Bloom” – a two-layer cake, one chocolate and one vanilla, with a layer of fudge and covered in bright green, butter cream frosting with pink and purple flowers.
Valastro told the Associated Press,
“What makes me unique is my designs. We came up with the designs, using my exact ingredients and baking instructions, down to how many revolutions for mixing the batter. … I’m proud of this. I just love what I do. I love making cakes, and I’m good at it.”
“Cake Boss” airs on the Learning Channel and follows Valastro’s huge Italian family as they design custom cakes for all occasions. Almost every show the team is forced to outdo the challenge they had on the previous episode and make the cakes bigger, better and more outrageous.
Valastro was really worried about the idea of his cakes being mass produced because his recipes have been passed down through the generations and he didn’t want people to get bad quality products bearing his name.
He said he knew they nailed it “when they brought the last final prototypes, you couldn’t tell the difference between their cakes and mine. For me, that’s the biggest thing.”
