America's favorite baker, Buddy Valastro, is excited to announce his upcoming 17-city "Bakin' with The Boss Tour," which kicks off on November 3rd in New York City at The Town Hall and wraps November 23rd in Buddy's home state at The New Jersey Performing Arts Center in Newark.

In this live interactive event, the master baker and star of TLC's Cake Boss will share stories behind his hit TV series and his colorful Italian family, answer audience questions and give a live demonstration of the techniques that have made him one of the most successful and renowned cake artists in the nation. Buddy will also invite audience members to join the fun on stage.

On November 2nd, Free Press (Simon & Schuster) will release Buddy's first book, Cake Boss: The Stories and Recipes from Mia Famiglia, and while on tour, Buddy will appear at signings in conjunction with each of his shows. The book is an uncommonly touching and inspiring memoir of his family's fascinating and poignant life story. It also offers a selection of Buddy's coveted recipes and some of his best tips and techniques that will make every reader the "cake boss" of their own kitchen.
