CALL IT THE BUDDY SYSTEM, because Baking with the Cake Boss
is an education in the art of baking and decorating, from
kneading to rolling, fondant to flowers, taught by Buddy
Valastro himself, the star of TLC’s smash hit Cake Boss.
With more than 100 of his most sought-after recipes,
including birthday and holiday cakes and other special theme
designs, this book is a master course that culminates in the
showstopping cakes for which Carlo’s Bake Shop is famous.
Following the arc of Buddy’s career from apprentice to
master baker, Baking with the Cake Boss offers readers the
same on-the-job education earned by everyone who comes to
work at Carlo’s Bake Shop, with some of Buddy’s and the
family’s memories shared along the way. It builds
organically from simple cookies and pastries to pies,
flower-adorned cupcakes, and basic fondant cakes, to
breathtaking cakes for every holiday and special occasion.
And, as you progress from basics to bedazzlements—like the
safari cake complete with chocolate animals and a
waterfall—Buddy shares his inspiring enthusiasm and stories
from the shop in his inimitable voice. He also provides the
tools for creating your own personal trademark cakes, with a
chart that lets you mix and match cake, frosting, and
liqueur syrup for cakes the way you like them. And there are
plenty of photos that illustrate artistic flourishes and
decorations you can use to adorn your individual creations.
With 650 gorgeous, step-by-step instructional photos that
let you follow Buddy as if you were next to him in the

Cake Boss’s artistic vision.
