Buddy “Cake Boss” Valastro helps transform Oteri’s Italian Bakery

in an episode airing December 30 at 9/8c

TLC star Buddy Valastro, known as the CAKE BOSS, has a new series – BAKERY BOSS – that follows him as he travels across the country, bringing his famous blend of business skills and baking expertise to help other bakers that are struggling to make their American dreams come true.

In the episode airing December 30 on TLC, Buddy and his team visit Oteri’s Italian Bakery, based in Philadelphia, PA, to meet owner Lisa, who is still reeling from the loss of her father and mentor Tom. Since then, business has slowed but Lisa and her fiancé Jimmy have not wanted to make any changes. Buddy must help this stubborn family change their traditions, while still continuing to be true to the family legacy. And later, Buddy sets up a 12 foot long Philly cheese steak cake order to test their skills.


Buddy turned his own family-run neighborhood bakery, Carlo’s, into a global destination, and understands the challenges of running a business – and the complications of doing it with relatives at your side. Now, Buddy will spend time helping this family in crisis, both personally and professionally, helping evaluate their every ingredient and technique, and challenging them to make big changes all in an effort to transform their crumbling dream into a sweet success.

BAKERY BOSS is produced for TLC by High Noon Entertainment.

Interviews, the full episode, and photos are all available upon request.
