It’s all cake, all the time at Carlo’s Bakery, especially at the newly opened Lackawanna factory. This Jersey City factory isn’t just a headquarters for all eight bakeries run by Cake Boss Buddy Valastro, it’s also an interactive event venue. The Lackawanna factory houses a classroom designed for both public and private classes. The classroom is also attached to a small ballroom that can fit a maximum of 100 people for corporate events or meetings.
IT MAY BE JUST 1 SQUARE MILE but there’s plenty of chutzpah packed into the tiny metropolis of Hoboken. It’s been named the best walking town in America for places with a population of 50,000 (WalkScore.com), a top ten college town (Princeton Review) and No. 1 city in the country for singles (Money magazine). Of course, it is also known as the birthplace of Frank Sinatra and the hometown of everybody’s favorite baker, the Cake Boss himself, Buddy Valastro.
