Who is his father Buddy?

American baker, TV personality and businessman Bartolo ‘Buddy’ Valastro Jr. was born under the zodiac sign Pisces on 3 March 1977, in Hoboken, New Jersey USA. He’s probably known best for his reality show “Carlo’s Bakery”, although he’s today also known for having starred in several other shows, such as “Cake Boss”, “Next Great Baker” and “Buddy’s Bakery Rescue”.

Buddy was raised in both Hoboken and Little Ferry, New Jersey by his father Buddy Sr. and mother Mary Tubito, both of whom were of Italian descent; Mary passed away aged 69 in 2017. Buddy has four older sisters: Lisa, Maddalena, Mary and Grace.


He studied at Ridgefield Park High School and became passionate about baking during his time there, thus simultaneously taking baking lessons at the Bergen County Technical High School, Teterboro Campus. Buddy was only 11 when he began working at his family’s business Carlo’s Bakery; he never completed his high school education, as it was revealed in an episode of “Cake Dynasty” that his son Bartolo III was the first Valastro to finish high school.

Buddy’s journey into the culinary world began at an early age when he started working alongside his father Bartolo Sr. at Carlo’s Bakery, from whom he learned the art of baking and decorating cakes, instilling in him a strong work ethic and a passion for creating exceptional desserts. Under his father’s guidance, Buddy honed his skills and developed his signature style, blending traditional techniques with innovative designs.


In 1994, tragedy struck when Buddy’s father passed away unexpectedly. At just 17 years old, Buddy stepped up to lead Carlo’s Bakery, taking on the role of head baker and eventually becoming the owner. Despite his young age and lack of formal culinary training, Valastro proved to be a natural talent, breathing new life into the family business with his creative vision and entrepreneurial spirit.

His big break came in 2009, when he was approached by TLC to star in the reality TV show “Cake Boss”; the show, which followed Buddy and his team as they created elaborate custom cakes for various occasions, became an overnight hit. Buddy’s charisma, wit and undeniable talent endeared him to viewers, turning him into a household name and catapulting Carlo’s Bakery to worldwide fame.

As “Cake Boss” gained popularity, Buddy expanded his empire, opening new locations of Carlo’s Bakery across the US and internationally; he also diversified his business ventures, launching a line of baking products, publishing cookbooks, and starring in spin-off shows such as “Next Great Baker” and “Kitchen Boss”.

Despite his success in the entertainment industry, Buddy remains deeply committed to his roots as a baker and pastry chef; he continues to be actively involved in the day-to-day operations of Carlo’s Bakery, personally overseeing the creation of each cake that bears his name. His dedication to his craft and his relentless pursuit of perfection have earned him the respect and admiration of his peers in the culinary world.


In addition to his work in television and business, Buddy’s also a philanthropist, using his popularity to support various charitable causes, partnered with organizations such as St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital and the Make-A-Wish Foundation to help make a positive impact on the lives of others.
