Buddy Valastro, the fourth-generation baker who is popular for developing just amazing cakes, has actually made the TLC TV show, “Cake Boss”. He is the successor of his dad and his extended family in the cake industry.

Just how much does a Cake Boss cake cost?

The actual cost of getting a cake from the “Cake Boss” pastry shop, called Carlo’s Bake Shop, will depend upon the kind of cake you want, if it’s going to be personalized, the size, the complexity, and the general decoration. Usually, cakes can have a price that ranges anywhere from as low as $3.50 for a cupcake to more than $50+ for a fondant cake. Remember that this is going to be from the main bakeshop and more than likely will not be made by Buddy Valastro himself.

When it comes to personalizations, a short article, that interviewed Buddy himself, noted that customized cakes will have prices that start at as low as $300 or on some remote occasions even just $100 if you were to pick an already decorated sheet cake. Also, you should not be amazed if your quote is as high as $5,000 if you were to desire a cake that had some mechanical components. According to some people who did get a personalized quote, they were given a price estimate anywhere from $12 to $18 per serving. For a consultation, the pastry shop does charge $100 for a tasting and one-on-one design, however in many cases, this charge can be waived if a discount coupon is used.
