About

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 baked our wedding cake for our wedding at Liberty House, and we were floored by how beautiful and tasty it was! We gave our consultant, James, a bunch of photos of some ideas we liked and asked him if they could incorporate certain elements of each one into our cake design. We wanted a tree design to match the Pacific Northwest meets NYC vibe we were going for with our wedding decor, and they absolutely nailed it. So many guests commented on how it looked like a real tree! Better yet, it tasted amazing! We opted for vanilla and chocolate cake with Oreo French Cream, and it was absolutely delicious! If you're looking for a phenomenal baker, Carlo's Bakery is it! Thank you to James and all of the staff at Carlo's for bringing our cake vision to life and making it even better than we could have imagined!
