Cake Boss Is Coming To Philly

By ·

CakeBoss2[1]

Buddy Valstro, otherwise known as the Cake Boss, of the TLC series of the same name, has finally officially settled on a Philadelphia location. Work has begunĀ to bringĀ Carlo’s Bakery Philadelphia to 2101 Walnut Street in Rittenhouse Square (because, apparently, no one told him how well Crumbs Bake Shop did[2] in that same neighborhood).

But hey, maybe things will be different this time, right? I mean, Valastro has a TV show. He has 7 other locations already up and running, with new ones planned for a casino in Connecticut and aboard every Norwegian Cruise Lines ship in the fleet. He does cakes shaped like full-size cows and working toilets[3]. So we’re not leaping to judgement here. At least not too much.

Carlo’s Bakery Philadelphia is scheduled to open later this year.
