About Carlo's Bakery

The Cake Boss

Carlo’s is a family owned bakery that produces what many say are the best tasting, highest quality wedding cakes, specialty cakes and baked goods in New Jersey. Carlo’s, originally opened by Carlo Guastaffero in 1910, was acquired by Bartolo Valastro Sr. in 1964. Since the untimely passing of Bartolo Sr. in 1994, matriarch Mary Valastro and her children Grace, Maddalena, Mary, Lisa and master baker Bartolo Jr. “Buddy” Valastro have expanded the business with the help of their spouses.

Because of the Valastro family’s dedication to quality and excellence, Carlo’s has received national recognition. Master Baker Bartolo Jr. “Buddy” has been featured in numerous publications, such as Modern Bride, and The Knot. Buddy’s cake design was voted by the Today’s Show viewers as best cake in America. He has also appeared in many other media outlets, including multiple appearances on the Food Network, for his intricate sugar art designs specialty cakes and wedding cakes that look just as good as they taste.

Carlo's bakery was the preferred cake vendor at my venue so I went with them. The process was pretty easy and quick. We went to their location in Jersey City to do the tasting (the sample slices were a lot bigger than I expected!). We liked 2 of the flavors and they had no problems including both (one for each layer) in the cake. I already picked out the design from their website and asked if orange flowers could be substituted with blue flowers. They could! On second thought I decided to have both blue and orange, and again, they had no problems accommodating this request at no extra charge. All this was settled at the consultation. I got an email confirmation of everything after the consultation. And a week before the wedding I got 2 phone calls confirming all the details. The cake looked great and was delicious, though in the end they did forget the orange flowers :) I still enjoyed it, and made sure I got all the leftover cake packed up and finished it days after the wedding!
