Now in paperback, Cake Boss is the New York Times bestselling life story of Buddy Valastro, the star of the hit TLC show, Cake Boss, and master baker of Carlo's Bake Shop, the Hoboken, New Jersey institution that he runs with the help of his funny and fiery family. Buddy Valastro was born to bake. But he's also a devoted family man, as loyal to his contemporary kitchen kin as he is to the legacy of the Valastros who baked before him. In Cake Boss, Buddy reveals how he came to be America's Favorite Baker and the inspirational tale of how his ancestors strove to succeed in America. Distinctively earnest, always honest, Buddy shares his inspiring tale of life, love, and loss—as well as thirty-seven recipes that will make readers the “cake boss” of their own kitchens.

Buddy's beautifully designed cakes are the stuff of legend—and so is the remarkable story of his father, a beloved member of the community and a brilliant baker who set the stage for his family's rise to the pinnacle of their industry. Presenting an irresistible combination of time-tested old-world recipes and modern creations, all founded on rock solid “old-school” techniques, Cake Boss recounts the incredible true story of how Carlo's Bake Shop came to be, and how one hard-working family succeeded in making it a household name. The strong bond and loving dynamic of the Valastro clan make this an uncommonly touching and inspiring memoir.

Il libro, non ancora tradotto in italiano, ha per autore Bartolo "Buddy" Valastro pasticcere italo-americano divenuto celebre in America per le sue spettacolari torte a tema, delle vere e proprie opere d’ arte e per un programma reality ( The cake boss ) in cui le telecamere lo seguono sia nel lavoro che nella vita privata. Fiero delle sue origini siciliane Valastro ripercorre, anche con l’ aiuto di foto, la storia della sua attività indissolubilmente legata a quella della sua grande e bella famiglia in un libro di memorie sincero e talvolta commovente. Notevole inoltre la seconda parte del libro dove l’autore ha raccolto le sue più famose ricette di dolci e pasticcini che i suoi estimatori potranno eseguire facilmente.
