Buddy Valastro Takes the Cake to Akron

When: Sun., March 27 2011

He may talk like a wise guy, but Hoboken baker Buddy Valastro is sweet as powdered sugar. Then again, we would expect nothing less of the star of TLC's hit series Cake Boss, a close-up look at Valastro, his wacky-but-lovable Italian family, and some of the most awesome cakes ever to hit the screen. A fourth-generation baker, Valastro owned and operated Carlo's Bake Shop long before the TV crews came calling. But he's adjusted well to national acclaim: His show is in its third season, a spin-off is in the works, he has a cookbook coming out in November, and he's launched a nationwide tour — Bakin' With the Boss — that pulls into the Akron Civic Theatre tonight at 7 p.m. Look for stories, cakes, Q&A, and even some audience participation. Tickets start at $25.75; snag 'em at 330-253-2488 or online at The Akron Civic Theatre — a downtown landmark since 1929 — is at 182 South Main St. in Akron. — Cicora
