Contest has ended. Please click HERE to see the gallery of cake designs that our young budding designers created!
Following three generations of Italian bakers, it was only natural that Buddy Valastro follow in the footsteps of his father and those before him as a renowned baker. After the loss of his father, Buddy took on the family business – Carlo’s Bakery. Even though this was a huge responsibility to then 17 year old Buddy, he created a name for the business with the artistic culinary skills he possesses – particularly in his techniques involving sugar art.
Nowadays, Buddy Valasco has become a household name as families tune in every Monday night to catch the Cake Boss in action on TLC. He has amazed millions with his beautiful wedding cakes, pastries, and specialty cakes, turning out masterpieces in competitions and demonstrations on his hit show. And on Friday, November 19th, he will be wowing crowds locally as he shares stories and showcases his skills to an intimate gathering at the Wells Fargo Center. It is promised that no member of the audience will be farther than 75 feet from the stage, ensuring that every pair of eyes will be able to fully take in all Buddy will reveal in cake decorating and beyond.
And I am excited to reveal that we have tickets to give away to this special event!
Starting now, Buddy is asking your children to design the very cake they wish that Buddy would make for them. Children ages 6–14 are invited to create, draw, and color a cake design that will enter them and a grown-up into a chance to win a pair of tickets to see the Cake Boss live at the Wells Fargo Center on Friday, November 19th at 7:30pm, plus a signed cookbook.
