The original Carlo’s Bakery in Hoboken, New Jersey became a favourite among locals for their authentic Italian pastries. Today if you visit the original Carlo’s Bakery, you’ll find a queue right down the street. If you want to try the most popular pastry than you can’t miss the Sfogliatelle, Lobster Tail. This pastry was perfected by Buddy’s father and put Carlo’s Bakery on the map. Other crowd favourites include cannolis, cannoli donuts, hazelnut cream puffs and eclairs.

But pastries are not the only thing on the menu at Carlo’s Bakery. Buddy is well known for his elaborate cake designs. Initially gaining popularity for artistic wedding cakes, Buddy’s portfolio has grown to include some of the most jaw-dropping cakes ever made. Buddy has created cakes for Oprah, Jennifer Lopez and Willie Nelson.
