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.

We had our cake tasting and told the cake consultant what we wanted. Closer to the wedding date, we spoke and the consultant was very confused by what we wanted because there's lack of communication from the person before who had left Carlo's. The cake tastes okay, nothing spectacular. Also on the cake, there's MAR on the cake and we were all very confused what that meant. I didn't really care about the cake much so I don't care what MAR actually might mean. I convince my guests they meant marriage. What else could it mean? Maybe Carlo's messed up our name's initials? Whatever, I could care less now, but if you care about how your cake should look, you better make sure they know what they are doing and what they are putting on the cake.

Ill start by saying that our wedding cake from Carlos was absolutely delicious! You can never expect much from wedding cake - however our cake from Carlos was wonderful, and actually many guests commented how delicious the cake tasted both at the reception and after. We chose a simple black and white cake w a strawberry cream filling, and went with whip cream frosting rather than fondant. Sounds pretty basic and simple - but it was soo super yummy and fresh.

My only issue, which wasn't a huge one for me, but can certainly be a major one for some brides, is they did not frost the cake in the colors we had chosen and settled on at our tasting consultation. We even provided a picture of basic rose piping in pink on every other tier, when we got to the reception i saw that the piping and cake decor was perfect, however the whole cake was white, not pink as indicated on our receipt. Our florist had also decorated the cake w flowers Ect so It looked beautiful regardless of the color mix-up, however, to someone this would of been a huge deal (and rightfully so).

All in all I would get another cake from cArlos. The product was excellent and enjoyed by all.

Carlo’s bakery was the preferred baker for our wedding venue and it was easy to see why. The cake was beautiful but, more importantly, it was absolutely delicious. Our guests could not get enough of it and we’ve been happily eating the leftovers for 3 days now. The staff at Carlo’s was very easy to work with and we were very pleased with our cake.

Initially I thought something like the wedding cake was important, but not as important as other services. The closer I got to my wedding, I realized that every single aspect of your wedding is just as important as the others because just one can ruin the others. SO thankful I went with Carlo's and ended up with a beautiful and DELICIOUS cake! Thanks guys!

We had our wedding at the Hyatt in Jersey City. Carlo's Bakery is a preferred vendor for the Hyatt. A few months before our wedding we booked a tasting at their Jersey City facility with Ray. They let us choose from approximately 25 different cake styles and then let us have a tasting with 8-10 different pre-made fillings. With our guest count they gave us a 4-tier cake. Ray gave us free reign with the cake and told us we could have a different filling in each tier if we wanted to. We ended up choosing a strawberry shortcake, red velvet and black/white with fudge filling for our tiers. The cake was delicious!!!! We wanted to change the color for our flowers on the cake and Carlos's charged a nominal fee. It totally made the cake! Thank you to Ray and the staff for making us a delicious centerpiece for the wedding!

Carlos bakery is the preferred bakery at Liberty House to order your wedding cakes. From the cake tasting to the day before their service was impeccable. We were able to have each cake tier a different flavor to make our wedding extra special. They called the week of the wedding to confirm all details and our guest count for accuracy. And on the wedding day many of our guests were raving about our wedding cake from the design and the quality of taste. Excellent choice for your wedding cake.

My husband and I worked with Angelo from Carlo's and it was great. We had nothing to worry about after we picked a flavor and design of the cake; Angelo handled everything. It was delivered on time and was honestly the best wedding cake I have ever had! Would definitely recommend.
