We are deeply saddened by the heartbreaking loss Mary Valastro, best known as “Mama” from the beloved franchise CAKE BOSS. Mama was adored by millions of fans around the world, and her strength and love for her family inspired all of us every day. Our thoughts and prayers go out to the Valastro family and friends during this difficult time.

For Buddy Valastro, mixing eggs, sugar, butter and flour means a lot more than “making a cake.” As a fourth generation baker, it’s a constant source of pleasure, pride and creativity. Creating amazing cakes connects Buddy with the memory of his father Buddy Sr. and his extended Italian family history.

Returning for a new season of Cake Boss, Buddy and his four sisters, two brothers-in-law and cousins continue their quest to grow the family business. Taking Carlo’s Bakery to new heights, Buddy and his team will create even bigger, better and more outrageous cakes than ever before.

Buddy’s imagination works in over-drive this season as the exciting cake ideas from his consultations become a reality. In fact, his quest to achieve his late father’s dream of making Carlo’s Bakery a household name guarantees that viewers see Buddy in some of his most surprising situations yet.
