Well, I'm the idiot. This show is exciting, delicious, drama-filled, Italian family lovin' goodness! Carlo "Buddy" Valastro is "The Boss" and a master baker! The cakes are beyond phenomenal and the entire baking staff is referred to as "The Familia." His crazy Italian sisters run the bakery downstairs with his saucy Italian mother (who clearly wears the pants in the family) is the Business Manager.
Buddy took over Carlo's Bakery after his father, Buddy Senior died suddenly. At the age of 17, Buddy Jr. began his journey in baking and is quite frankly, the best out there!
