Carlo’s is a family owned bakery that produces what many say are the best tasting, highest quality wedding cakes, specialty cakes and baked goods in New Jersey. Carlo’s, originally opened by Carlo Guastaffero in 1910, was acquired by Bartolo Valastro Sr. in 1964. Since the untimely passing of Bartolo Sr. in 1994, matriarch Mary Valastro and her children Grace, Maddalena, Mary, Lisa and master baker Bartolo Jr. “Buddy” Valastro have expanded the business with the help of their spouses.

Because of the Valastro family’s dedication to quality and excellence, Carlo’s has received national recognition. Master Baker Bartolo Jr. “Buddy” has been featured in numerous publications, such as Modern Bride, and The Knot. Buddy’s cake design was voted by the Today’s Show viewers as best cake in America. He has also appeared in many other media outlets, including multiple appearances on the Food Network, for his intricate sugar art designs specialty cakes and wedding cakes that look just as good as they taste.

Carlo's Bakey is the exclusive dessert vendor that our venue uses. We had a consultation at their headquarters in NJ and really enjoyed the tasting, and Sarah, our consultant, was extremely helpful. I definitely asked her the same question more than once, and she was very patient. Not long before our wedding, we got a new consultant, and something was lost in the transition. We ended up getting the wrong cupcakes on our wedding day. They looked lovely and tasted fine, but the color was not what we signed up for, and I think that Sarah's transition was the reason why, since her replacement (a very nice person) didn't seem to have a clear idea of our order, and I don't think he had access to her emails. (Before I found out she left, I sent her an email that was apparently never received.) I wish I had made sure this was squared away. We and our families were the only people who realized the error, but it was disappointing nonetheless. I can understand a little detail being lost, but the mistake was from our original order and tasting. There should have been a hard copy record of that. The pastries at the table were absolutely delicious, and there were many many left over for us to take home and enjoy the week after the wedding.

Our venue's catering package included a wedding cake from Carlo's Bakery and we were so excited to work with them. Our wedding cake was absolutely beautiful and it tasted really good! We chose a vanilla cake with fresh strawberries and whipped cream inside. We also had pastries in addition to the cake for dessert at our wedding and they were fantastic as well.

Absolutely amazing!! The most flawless vendor experience over the year and a half spent planning the wedding! They were extremely responsive, easy to work with, no stress! They worked with us to turn our complicated wedding cake vision into a reality- and it came out amazing - better than I dreamt of yet exactly what we wanted!! The cake was delicious and beautiful. We did a split bride/groom cake that had one side all "bride" (butterflies, quilting, gold/purple), and the other side of the cake was the "groom" - with a car garage, tool box, monogram, It was perfect. If you are thinking about Carlo's for your wedding cake - they are worth every penny!! Thanks Carlo's!!

We were married about a month ago, and our wedding cake from Carlo's was included in our catering package. I have to say this was unfortunately the worst vendor we worked with and the experience we had with the Westfield location in particular was pretty poor. We live in CA, so had to make sure we got as much done as we could when traveling back east to plan...which is why we had our cake consultation in April. We worked through all of the details, they said it was a simple request, and we thought we were good to go. I received a follow-up email asking for a photo of the cake image I had sent (he 'misplaced it') as well as a question about our colors, which was fine. I followed up a few times to confirm contact info, and they responded to an email 2 WEEKS before the wedding saying to call the bakery asap. My now husband called the Westfield location, and we were basically told they didn't have our order on file. Every time I called back the manager had 'just stepped out' and couldn't really get an explanation of what happened from any employee I spoke with. Our venue took over the conversation, and they eventually had pieces of it confirmed..and the cake/cupcakes that showed up on the wedding day were not what we had planned. Did it taste fine? Sure...but the customer service was very, very poor and that location seemed incredibly disorganized. We recommended that our venue reconsider including Carlo's in their catering package, as they said we are not the first to have this type of experience. I'd avoid if you can..

Buddy the cake designer was excellent from the moment we stepped into the bakery. He gave us some books to look at and we decided what we wanted. He customized the cake just for us. We had the carrot cake and it was so delicious, moist and not too sweet. I just loved them. We also used Carlos Bakery for our Cookie Buffet. All of the cookies were super fresh and tasted amazing. We had personalized biscotti and mini black and white cookies. The guests loved the Cookie Buffet and there weren't any cookies left over

I would give Carlos 5 stars but can't because there was one thing, somewhat small but also significant, that didn't go perfectly. We ordered a beautiful and delicious chocolate cake with chocolate ganache in 3 tier square (for about 70 people) and then matching sheet cake for the rest. Our cake was coverd in quilted chocolate fondant with gold ribbons and beading. The restaurant cut up the sheet cake first to serve the guests and when the slice of cake appeared in front of my husband the frosting was white. It wasn't the end of the world but most upsetting was that it didn't match and the fact that my husband hates white icing. All in all the cake was awesome tasting and beautiful. I would definitely recommend Carlos but be very specific about what you want, if it's in writing the guy, Buddy, will do it.

Selecting our wedding cake was one of the easiest and most enjoyable tasks of wedding planning. Our wedding was held at Liberty House in Jersey City; therefore, a cake from Carlo's was included in the wedding package. This said, Carlo's Bakery offered excellent service. Our cake tasting was SO MUCH FUN...many thanks again to Sarah who made the experience really memorable. I'll also say that the wedding cake ended up tasting much, much better at the wedding than at the tasting. We hardly took any home because it was so good and people were requesting seconds. If I were to do it all over again, I'd still order from Carlo's.

Carlo’s Bakery came from wedding cake heaven to deliver us an amazing experience and cake. It felt as though this establishment was much more knowledgeable about what they serve to their customers. We loved the small time feel of the facility because this way we knew it wasn’t a factory pumping out general wedding cakes. The day of, the taste and presentation were completely worth the price. Afterward, our guests couldn’t stop telling us how beautiful the cake was and how amazing it tasted. Carlo’s Bakery puts great care into making their cakes, and the product speaks to it. Each communication with the head baker inspired confidence that they had everything handled, which they did. Thank you to Carlo’s Bakery, would absolutely recommend.
