Carlo's Bake Shop - CAKE-BOSS-someness From New Jersey
Carlo’s Bake Shop is a family owned bakery that produces what many say are the best baked goods in New Jersey. Carlo’s, originally opened by Carlo Guastaffero in 1910, was acquired by Bartolo Valastro Sr. in the 1960’s. Since the untimely passing of Bartolo Sr., the Valastro family, led by master baker Bartolo Jr. “Buddy” Valastro, has expanded Bartolo Sr’s. dream and seen it flourish.
Carlo’s has received nationwide attention for the Bake Shop since the 2009 series premiere of TLC’s the Cake Boss. Within this North Jersey, square mile town, on the outskirts of New York City, Carlo’s has become a true pastry landmark establishment.
