On one particularly snowy day last February, we told you guys that “Cake Boss” Buddy Valastro had reportedly set his sights on Rittenhouse for his next location of Carlo’s Bakery—and that’s pretty much the last we’ve heard on the topic.

Well now, say our buds over at Foobooz, the TLC star is actually making it happen: work has begun at 2101 Walnut Street to make way for the bakery. (It even officially claims to be “Coming Soon!” on the locations portion of their website. It’ll be the empire’s tenth shop.

Valastro told Philly.com that he is considering trimming their “large menu” to keep an eye on quality control at the newest location—though we don’t imagine such cuts would affect the array of wedding cakes churned out by the confectionery.

Doors should open in March.
