Carlisle, PA – Join America’s favorite baker, Buddy Valastro, TLC’s Cake Boss, when he makes an appearance at the GIANT Super Food Store on Linglestown Road in Harrisburg to support his new line of Cake Boss premium cakes on Monday, November 11. Buddy will sign Cake Boss books and cakes and take photos with fans from 2:10 – 3:30 pm. Cakes and books will be made available for purchase.

It used to be that the only way to get a piece of the Cake Boss experience was to take a trip to the famous Hoboken bakery. With the line of Cake Boss cakes consumers can get the authentic taste and quality of Cake Boss in the bakery section of their local GIANT store.

Later that evening, Buddy will be appearing at the Hershey Theater in Hershey on November 11 at 7:30 pm. Tickets are on sale now. A limited number of VIP tickets are available for $95 which includes a post-show meet and greet, Cake Boss tour laminate, and a copy of Buddy’s new book Family Celebrations with the Cake Boss.

In this live, interactive event, the Cake Boss will share stories from his highly popular TV shows (Cake Boss, Next Great Baker), his family at Carlo’s Bakery, will answer audience questions, and most importantly, will give lots of live cake & cupcake decorating demonstrations, sharing tips and techniques in a high-energy experience for the whole family.

One of the centerpiece shows of the TLC network, a sixth season of Cake Boss began airing in May 2013. Viewers continue to celebrate the mouthwatering desserts and not- to-be-missed Valastro family moments occurring in bustling Hoboken, NJ, home of Carlo’s Bakery, which celebrated its 103rd anniversary this summer.

Buddy’s new TV series on TLC, Bakery Boss, premieres December 9th. Bakery Boss follows Buddy as he brings his world- famous blend of business skills and baking expertise to other family-run bakeries that are struggling to find their own sweet success. The pilot aired in May 2013 and was watched by 1.5 million viewers.

Buddy Valastro is the author of four books, including Family Celebrations with the Cake Boss, which will be released November 5th, 2013 by Simon & Schuster.
