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.

Fourth generation baker-decorator Buddy Jr. uses what he learned from his father and has taken his skills and artistry to new heights. Every cake made is customized to the individual’s needs and desires. Hundreds of thank you notes from satisfied brides and customers are available for you to review. Even Channel Seven’s Bill Evans said, “The best bakery in New York is in Hoboken.” Read less

Our wedding was at the Liberty House in Jersey City NJ, and as part of their wedding package we received our cake through Carlo's bakery. Actually the cake (and the cake tasting) came from their Jersey City location, which is more of a corporate office/huge bakery that isn't a storefront.

The cake tasting was awesome and we loved our cake.

Carlos bakery was awesome I went and met the head decorator Mauro n immediately picked a beautiful cake,I wanted to add a few extras to it so I had numerous discussion about the cake I ,with Angelo , he was patient and he answered my call every time.

Everyone knows Carlos Bakery from TV but we had the best experience as Hoboken-ites. The price tag was not cheap but MAN the cake was so beautiful and delicious. They completely matched our vision.

I still have guests asking me if there are any leftovers. You know the cake is good when people say they ate two slices at your wedding!

Absolutely delicious! We got married at the Hyatt Jersey City, so the cake was included as a part of our package with our venue. Carlos lived up to its reputation and then some! We had our consultation with Mauro - he made it really easy for us - we ended up choosing the chocolate top and vanilla bottom with chocolate ganache in the center - fantastic!

We were really on the fence with going with these guys since they are a huge tourist destination. Our fears all went away once we met with Mauro. What a genuinely nice guy and also very knowledgable.

We will be absolutely returning for occasion cakes from here on out.

This is the 3rd time we have gone to Carlo's for a cake and it just keeps getting better. Our wedding cake exceeded our expectations. It was fabulous!!! Such a highlight of the wedding! And most importantly it tasted great!! We worked with Mary to design our unique cake and we got exactly what we wanted and then some. They are an amazing family and it was important for us to use a family business. They take such care and consideration. The cake was so beautiful it hurt to cut into it. I will definitely keep on using them.

I have watched the show Cake Boss a few times with my fiancée and luckily work close in proximity to the bakery located in Hoboken NJ. I have often enjoyed pastries and sweets with coworkers from the many selections at the bakery. However when we booked our wedding at the Liberty House we were overjoyed to know that our package came with a cake from Carlos Bakery.

In the beginning we were quite nervous that the cake may not be as good as the individual smaller pastries we have had in the past. We booked our cake tasting and brought along my sister and her boyfriend. From the moment our booking was accepted for the tasting everything was extremely simple and a bit of stress automatically lifted. Mauro assisted us in the tasting and was extremely helpful and knowledgeable. He made our appointment move smoothly and helped provide us with a perfect memory of something we initially thought would be yet another wedding preparation. We selected our cake flavors ( there were many delicious ones to choose from) and requested to have butterflies with our flowers that we spotted on another cake we saw in the room. We explained that our daughter absolutely loved butterflies and she would be ecstatic to see them on the cake. It was not a problem and although it was an added price it was extremely reasonable.

The day of our wedding the cake was absolutely beautiful with every detail that was agreed upon. Our daughter loved the butterflies and we heard nothing but compliments on the cake's beauty. The taste was perfect and exactly what we recalled from our tasting. Although as tradition couples usually save the top cake tier for their 1 year anniversary we decided to devour it while fresh and order a smaller one next year for our anniversary. We just couldn’t let a good thing wait so long!

Our wedding cake was perfect for our event. We chose a black and white multiple layered cake with the NYC skyline as a border. The cake itself was delicious, we chose red velvet cake with cream cheese frosting and were pleased that it was moist and tasted just like we'd had at our cake tasting with Mauro the pastry chef. He was a great help in choosing what to serve to our guests based upon what we like. Mauro was funny and made the whole experience top notch. I can't tell you how many people told me that they were instructed to get a piece of our wedding cake to take home for sampling, we were afraid we'd run out of cake to serve! Joking aside, Carlos Bakery survived Sandy and will definitely receive our bakery business in the future.

My wife and I as part of our deal with the Liberty House got a deal with the famous Carlo's Bakery in Hoboken. Our out of town guests loved this since their children watch the TV show. We got to pick from 18 different cake styles and 12 different cake flavors in person. You could even have each layer of cake a different flavor if you were torn. The tasting was very helpful since we ended up choosing several flavors we may not have otherwise. We had a little over 150 people attending, so we were able to add an extra layer for about $100 (cake is included in Liberty House contract otherwise).

Although you have to pick from a number of cake designs, there is some flexibility in taking one aspect of one design and adding it to another...like using a different cake's flowers for instance. They will even remake the top part of your cake on your anniversary for about $50 if you desire. Of all the things to worry about when planning your own wedding, this is certainly not one of them.

Sooooo yummy!!! I can't really comment on the cost, because it was included as a part of our package with our venue, but wow! Carlos lived up to its reputation. We had a great consultation with Mauro. He even let us tweek one of their designs to make it exactly what we wanted. And the cake! Oh the cake! It was the best that I have ever had. If you are getting married in the tristate and can swing it to spend the bucks - definitely go for Carlos.

My wedding cake was free from Carlos Bakery because it was part of our venue's package. I only had to add a little extra because I wanted my own custom design. I met with Mauro and showed him a picture of what I wanted, with a few things to change about it. We got huge slices of cake for the cake tasting and we went with the black and white with fudge. Being that we met with him 6 months before the wedding I was a little nervous it wasn't going to be exactly what I asked for because the meeting would be forgotten about (because they are such a busy bakery). But when I walked in my reception and saw the cake, it was EXACTLY what I asked for! It was absolutely beautiful AND delicious! Received so many compliments on it. Thank you Carlos' Bakery!

We had met with Mauro for my consultation. He was actively involved and had great insight. He built us the most beautiful 5 tier cake. I recommend the vanilla/chocolate cake with fudge frosting. It was part of our venue package and he didn't skimp AT ALL. The cake looked like a million bucks. We cut our top layer into 12 pieces so we could enjoy it all year. Three months in and it still tastes just as fresh as the first day!! Hoping to have a mini one recreated for our anniversary. They were one of our best vendors.

Yes, it is the bakery in which "Cake Boss", is filmed at! I had my cake delivered from Hoboken, to Kansas (very far drive for the team,) but they managed! And my cake couldn't of been more spectacular. There was written on the cake "Good Luck, David!", for my husband, and we loved it! Also as the cake topper, there was my my dog and Dave's dog, yanking on my dress! So funny! This is the BEST BAKERY EVER. In the look, value, and most importantly, taste, I give it 5 stars! -Khaluha & Dave

Carlo's Bakery is known as the "Cake Boss" and after working with them it is easy to see why! Their cakes are absolutely delicious! No traditional blah wedding cakes here! The flavors taste home made! Our cake was actually included in our contract with our venue (the liberty house in jersey city) yet we had over 20 designs to choose from, and countless flavor combinations, and were even able to set up a tasting! We loved it so much that we ordered an additional grooms cake from them, in a different flavor. We will absolutely be returning customers!

I first tried Carlos Bakery a few years ago - my first red velvet cupcake. Ever since, I've been trying to find somewhere that can come close so I can indulge without going all the way to Hoboken. I've not found any that can even resemble it. Since I'd failed to find anything even remotely resembling the red velvet I craved, I went to Hoboken the morning before my wedding to pick up a Red Velvet cake from the case. We didn't open the box until about 9pm the following day and the cake was absolutely amazing! So fresh, moist and delicious - just what I had wanted... I was nervous how it would hold up after a day and a half since it usually doesn't last me more than 5 hours when I get one - but it was just as good as fresh. We ate a slice every morning before we left for the day and every night when we returned for the next 4 or 5 days - still totally delicious. I don't have any experience with custom orders or official 'wedding cake' orders... but if you'd be happy with standard cakes from the display case to serve at your wedding - I think it's the way to go! I got a few other things while I was there, so not 100% sure on the price, but it was around $25 or less and easily served 12 really good sized pieces.

I was nervous how it would hold up after a day and a half since it usually doesn't last me more than 5 hours when I get one - but it was just as good as fresh. We ate a slice every morning before we left for the day and every night when we returned for the next 4 or 5 days - still totally delicious. I don't have any experience with custom orders or official 'wedding cake' orders... but if you'd be happy with standard cakes from the display case to serve at your wedding - I think it's the way to go! I got a few other things while I was there, so not 100% sure on the price, but it was around $25 or less and easily served 12 really good sized pieces. Read less

Me and my husband got our wedding cake from Carlos Bakery and I can't even begin to tell you how awesome it came out! We had our wedding overlooking the NYC skyline and our cake was made to match that! It had cutouts of buildings to match the skyline! It was a skyline cake! It came out so great and we were so happy with your service! Not to mention the cake tasted amazing! If you want your cake to be picture perfect go with Carlos! It's so worth it! Thanks to all the staff at Carlos Bakery for a wonderful job!

Believe the hype!

Our wedding cake was not one of those over the top 3D cakes on the TV show, but was an elegant 4 layer cake. My wife and I selected Red Velvet and a variant of strawberry shortcake. 2 weeks post wedding I am still getting complements on how good the cake was. Even thinking of eating the top layer!

I have to say, we only used Carlos' Bakery b/c our venue has a contract with them, and they automatically do all the wedding cakes. With that being said, it made things super easy for us- all we had to do was enjoy a delicious tasting! My husband loves the show, so it was that much more fun to have our first official cake from Carlos'. And everyone is still talking about it!

We were thrilled with our snow capped wedding cake with red velvet and cream cheese icing for our winter wedding. The cake tasted great! And the cake looked wonderful. We could not be more pleased. The hand done flowers looked exactly like the black magic roses in my wedding bouquet. The snow effect looked exactly like the cake fell in the snow and the snow stayed stuck on it. We were so happy with the cake. All our guests loved it too. And all the ornaments we provided were included at just the right amount. We would highly recommend Carlos Bakery to anyone looking for a wedding cake.

Buddy and his team made my dream wedding cake! My parents had originally gone to Carlo's Bakery for my wedding shower cake for something fun and different. It was amazing and after we tasted it - we were sold on having the wedding cake come from Buddy.

My parents and I ventures to the bakery one Saturday morning and worked on a cake with Buddy himself. We tasted different combinations and looked through the wedding book. I left very happy but unsure about the design that my parents and I had chosen.

That night I called my parents and said that the cake didn't resonate with my fiance and I. So, I bit the bullet and called Carlo's. They were so helpful and so nice that they offered to fit me in on a busy Saturday to discuss the changes. I sat with Mauro and we worked it out in 10 minutes. We told him our ideas, we discussed the "Mauro shuffle" (different shaped cakes stacked on each other) and color. I emphasized that I wanted my cake to have a wow factor but not be overrun with very bright colors.

Buddy called me when the design of the cake started to understand the concept and colors again .... and when I walked into the ballroom - it was more than I had imagined. My cake was a highlight for everyone at the event and it was a delicious treat for me when I got back to my room that night too!

Thank you!

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!

Buddy at Carlos City Hall Bake Shop is a master of wedding cakes. Our wedding cake was so gorgeous, it almost didn't look like a cake! We went with a red velvet cake with cream cheese filling and the outside was white fondant with silver details. It was four layers, and each layer was different - one looked like a quilted pillow with tassels and one looked like it was draped in fabric. I didn't know a cake could look so good, and the taste was divine! We did the traditional freezing of the top layer and just ate it for our 1 year anniversary, and it was as good as our wedding day!

We also used Carlos for our wedding favors. We gave everyone a small box of miniature Italian pastries and everyone raved about them.

We had a 5 tier cake with simple design element to match our theme. The vanilla cake with strawberries as the filling was so delicious that our family asked if we had any extra for them to have after the wedding. We had an entire tier left for about a week after the wedding and it was fresh like the day it was made. We were thrilled to have Carlos' Bakery make our wedding cake. Hope you will use them and enjoy your cake with your family the week following your wedding.

We got our wedding cake from Carlo's Bakery and it was delicious. Not only does Carlo's make beautiful looking cakes, they actually taste even better. We were very happy with the flavors we chose - we alternated chocolate cake and chocolate ganache filling with black and white cake with fudge filling. Our guests were raving about the cake. Many told us it was the best cake they have ever had. The only minus to working with Carlo's is that the shop is very busy. We didn't have the best experience going in for the cake tasting. It was practically impossible to get to the table in the back of the store where they do all of the consultations. Once we made it there, we didn't have any privacy and could barely hear one another over the crowd in the bakery. But in the end, it was worth it!

They are really great to work with. It is a little hard to get in touch with them on the phone to make an appointment so make sure you specify you want a wedding cake. They are also a little pricey but definitely worth it, beautiful work.

We selected a green cake with the ivory trim, chocolate cake with chocolate ganache, chocolate mousse, raspberries & finally a yellow cake all as one layer. It was not only beautiful but delicious. The cake was so moist I couldn't even get it to stay on my fork. I demanded all left overs be brought to our room, where I made everyone eat more. Our friends and family also enjoyed the cake. I can't wait to go back for an anniversary cake!

I can honestly say after working in the catering business for 16 years this was the BEST wedding cake I have ever tasted (and I have tasted a lot of cakes).

The only down side was that I had to pay to have the sugar flowers changed to calla lilies, which I thought was silly since the cake on the next page had the very same calla lilies.

Buddy from Carlo's Bakery did a great job with our wedding cake. I knew their cakes were delicious from past experience with the bakery, and ours certainly was...the fudge filling...mmm...I still think about it! I ate a whole bunch of it the morning after the wedding.

Buddy really helped us with design as well. Our wedding was deco-themes and the colors were black, red and white. Considering we didn't want an all white cake these are not the easiest colors. He helped us to incorporate the black in to an elegant, beautiful cake. Both delish and it made for fabulous pics!

My wedding cake ROCKED. It was the best tasting cake ever. It was moist, the fondant was sugary and not bland, the filling was mouth watering - just perfect. The only complaint I have is that I have to wait until my 1 year anniversary to eat the top of the cake! I will probably end up ordering a mini version of our cake for our 1 year anniversary so that the fresh taste of our wedding cake brings us back to our wedding day.

Buddy truly is an artist at what he does and tries to please his clients to the best that he can. We ordered a square cake but a round cake was delivered - regardless, the cake was still beautiful!

What a great place to get the ultimate wedding cake. "Buddy" was able to grab my wife's idea of the perfect cake and made it much better. Always keep me up to date with the progress of the cake and was so happy with the end result. He is the cake boss for that reason!!

When I found out my venue provided a Cake Boss cake with our package, I really wasn't expecting much. I'd seen the show and had been to the bakery a few times and it didn't seem like anything special. Scheduling our tasting was a pain and it was even more difficult pushing through the massive crowds to get to our appointment. But I have to say, the cake was probably the best I'd ever tasted. Fresh, moist and delicious. Even the fondant was tasty. I'm drooling thinking about it now and I can't believe I have to wait a whole year to eat the left overs!

My husband loved his UFC Octagon groom's cake from Carlo's Bakery. Making an appointment was simple and my consultation with Mauro helped me in thoroughly planning my cake ideas. Mauro helped to design a comical cake with my husband and I in our martial arts uniforms, with me side kicking him! While it was a little hard getting in touch with them to change the cake filling, once I did get in touch with somone, they were extremely flexible in accomodating me. I liked how Mauro called to confirm every aspect of the cake prior to it being made two days before the wedding. The guests were amazed and my husband was in utter shock when the cake was brought out. While it was definitely overpriced, it was well worth it! Everyone still talks about the cake from it's design to how delicious the black and white cake with fudge filling tasted!

The wedding cake, the cake-tasting, and Buddy of Carlo's Bakery, definitely "take the cake" when it comes to what was best about my wedding. It doesn't get any better than Carlo's. Our cake rocked. It was beautiful, perfect, and delicious. The cake-tasting was a heavenly event -- sitting in a bakery on a Sunday morning tasting 10 pieces of cake. Like I said, it doesn't get any better! Highly highly recommended for any wedding taking place in the NYC area.

Although we HAD to use Carlo's for our cake (it was included in our package at the Hyatt), we found the selection of "package cakes" though not vast still had what we wanted. The cake was delicious (even the frozen piece that we ate on our anniversary) and Buddy accomodated our heavy Mickey and Minnie Mouse cake topper by including carboard rods in the top cake layer. To this day people are remarking about how tasty the cake was.

The team at Carlos was great to work with and reassured me throughout the process that I didn't have to worry about anything. And, they were right! The cake and black and white cookie favors were a hit - looked beautiful and so delicious. The only snag was that their selection offered through our contract was disappointingly limited (they have a pre set contract with our venue). However, his team went out of their way to figure out a way to make the cake I was looking for and were so accommodating from that point forward. It was a great experience for both us and our guests!

The cake came together with my package from the venue but we did go to Carlo's to select the cake and taste the options.

Very delicious cake but limited options if you are choosing from the basic options. Most of them were very old fashioned. The cake we chose had green flowers on it and they charged us $100 just to change the color of the flowers to pink, which I thought was totally absurd.

My cake was DELICIOUS and beautiful! Of course, I didn't actually taste it until the next day, with all the fun to be had during the wedding, the last thing I wanted to do was eat cake, but I should have! It was even delicious the next day though. The cake was a part of the package that I was given at the Liberty House, where the reception was, so I didn't have a choice, but I woulnd't have wanted it any other way. They were down to earth people when I went for the tasting and on the wedding day I was happy that it looked exactly how I was hoping it would. The only downside is that they could not provide a gluten free option for my husband with celiac disease-- BUT we really appreciated their honesty in that they can not provide a safe, gluten free kitchen in which to make it. More bakeries should be as honest as that and not claim to provide allergy free food, if they knowingly can not.
Overall, I was very satisfied with my wedding cake from Carlos!

when we met with carlos bakery they were very helpful and warm, carlos's mom even sang us a song in the bakery about being in love it was so so sweet. Mario was very helpful with ideas and what would be best for the cake seeing that we were getting married on a yacht, the only thing that made me alittle crazy was trying to get in touch with them and wanting to change things and no one got back to me til a few days before the wedding kinda stressed me out, but the cake looked amazing and was done just perfect !! everyone said how great the cake tasted , my now husband though was not pleased due to the cake falling apart when the chef was cutting it, even she made a remark on how the cake didn't cut well and crumbled, otherwise all was great.

I got married in October of this past year. I went with a wedding venue that worked with Carlo's Bakery specifically. I went to the cake consultation at Carlo's warehouse and handed them a picture of what I wanted on my cake. It was honestly my "dream cake!" It had tons of leaves all over it. I was contemplating decorating it myself with store-bought items, but they said that would be hard to do. I paid extra money to have them decorate it with leaves, and I have to say that I was really disappointed with how it came out. There were hardly ANY leaves/pumpkins (another thing I wanted) on the cake! It turned out looking very plain! I was just overall disappointed because I paid extra money (a good amount too) for leaves/pumpkins to be added, and if you compare the picture that I have to the actual cake, they look like two completely different cakes!

The cake's flavors were good, but the rest was disappointing.

I went with Carlo's Bakery, because my venue (The Liberty House Restaurant) contributed to the cost. My initial consultation was good. They seemed to understand my vision and the cake tasting was delicious. This place has delicious cake. That said, the cakes here are expensive! and only getting more so due to the popularity of "cake boss". When I arrived at my venue on my wedding day, the first thing I noticed was that the cake was a little sloppy and not 100% correct. It was supposed to have those little gold balls on it and they were missing. Luckily my venue was awesome and had someone from the bakery over to fix the cake before the cocktail hour was over. Overall I think that Carlo's Bakery is overrated.

The team at Carlos was able to duplicate my dream wedding cake (from a random image online) with no issue! The cake was delicious (vanilla cake with fresh strawberries, french cream filling, and butter cream icing!). The reason for the low quality of service score is that they forgot to deliver our grooms cake- the person who took my order simply forgot to put it on the same delivery ticket as our wedding cake. They have refunded my $$ as well as given me a credit for a future cake. It was a surprise for my fiance & no one knew it was missing... but still. The cake was part of the wedding package from our venue, so I'm not sure how much it would have been on its own, but I gave it a 4 out of 5.

Our cake was delicious, I don’t normally like wedding cake but this one was different! The cake also looked incredible from the outside too, it was exactly what I had wanted and Buddy and his team made it happen. The only negative thing is that they are the hardest people ever to get in touch with, but with all their success I suppose that is to be expected. I would definitely recommend getting your wedding cake from Carlo's its a wonderful experience.

I can't comment too much on this vendor due to the cake being part of the Liberty House package. We were shown a booklet of quite a few cakes that were fairly simple. Buddy is known for his sugar flowers and I asked to add some peonies and hydrangia sugar flowers and he was going to charge me an additional $1,500. To me I know his work is beautiful I just had to go with the package cake. Which eventhough it was very simple (5 tiered round cake with an iridescent ribbon) it looked wonderful with the fresh flowers that I put on. As for taste....you can't beat it!! It was delish!!

They do a nice job, but we found a different bakery for our anniversary cake. They are VERY expensive. I warn all new brides to be to shop around. There are very good bakeries in Jersey City that do just as good a job for alot less.

The cake was good, but in the end I felt I overpayed.

I am very dissappointed with the cake. When I went for the consultation, the choices were limited because the cake was part of the package from the venue. There are bands on my cake and I have provided a swatch of the color of the bridesmaids dress (plum/sangria) color. The band on the cake came out to be more brown than purple. In addition, the bands were all different thickness among the 3 layers. At the consultations, i have asked for thin layer of fondant but on the day of, the fondant was thicker than I have asked for. Overall, I wish I've had chosen a different bakery or even pay out of my own pocket for different bakery. THough Buddy from Carlos Bakery met up with us fo the consultation and he was a nice guy.

I ordered my wedding cake years ago from the bakery, but I wanted to warn young brides of this bakeries terrible customer service. I recently ordered a simple birthday cake for my son's birthday. They charged me $126. As soon as I walked out I realized that it was an unusually high price. So I called them immediately to cancel the order. I was told by the woman who had just placed the order that I should return the following morning, they could refund my credit card the next day. I went ahead and ordered a comparable cake for about $40. This morning I went to get my refund and they flat out refused. I tried to plead my case, calmly without raising my voice and the manager just would not listen. And just after a few minutes of me trying to explain the situation, she treathened to have me thrown out of the store. I hate confrontations, so I wasn't even being loud. I have never been treated so badly by a business establishment in my life. I have been one of their loyal customer for 16 years. Their wedding cakes are beautiful, but please be careful when dealing with this bakery.

Horrible just horrible. Ive warned you don't order from them. 1st of all the cake is nasty and ugly and I've been told that buddy slaughters unicorns and puts their meat in the cake. Then he saves the horn for himself. And he strokes the unicorn horn til it gives him magical unicorn mayo. And that's wat he uses as icing. Disgusting.
