Calling all cake decorators who may have never used fondant… or even those who have. Buddy Valastro of TLC's Cake Boss has just announced that cake-decorating kits will be sold in Michaels starting Sept. 5, and then Bed Bath and Beyond, Target, Walmart, Kohl's, JC Penney, and Sam's Club, starting in November. These kits include all the tools necessary to work with fondant, including four colors of fondant, tips, piping bags, cutters, and more, along with two easy-to-follow decorating ideas for your cake, and will each retail for $29.99.

Meant to be a guide, these decorating ideas are personalized to fit the four colors provided in the package, and will either guide you through the decorating process or provide a jumping-off point for your own decorating ideas. Kit themes include Boys/Sports, Girls/Flower, Circus, Baby Shower, Spring, Halloween, and Winter. The mission of the kits, explained Valastro, is to provide the tools necessary to produce a professional-looking cake at home. "If you have the right tools and a little bit of know-how, I guarantee can make cakes that look very successful. And that’s what we want," he said.

In the kits, Valastro’s team will include videos that walk users through the process, enabling them to produce something they can feel good about. This idea applies to kids especially, and one of Valastro's goals is to show boys that baking is just a good a hobby for them as it is for girls, and he prides himself in being an example. "When you make a cake you get a sense of satisfaction and a sense of pride, and I want very kid in the world to be able to do that," said Valastro.

Intrigued by this idea, we knew we had to test it out. Who better to send than a fondant virgin who loves arts and crafts and decorating but whose baking experience lies at break and bake, and another contributor for The Daily Meal, another fondant virgin who works in finance. Due to my artistic background, I thought I would be able to pick up decorating with fondant easily. My partner, however, was a little nervous about his lack of decorating skills. But oh how the tables turned. It turns out, fondant is not for the over-confident first-timer. While I struggled with laying my fondant over the cake, as I was not used to the sticky dough-like mixture, and had trouble kneading and rolling it out, even producing a few rips and tears in my first time laying it over my cake, my finance-practicing cohort was a natural, and laid his fondant with ease. But from there my decorative skills took over (it was not an all-around failure, friends), and our contributor followed the instructions to produce a very professional, and delectable-looking cake. Both took less than 30 minutes to craft, and were surprisingly stunning.

So, we learned two lessons from our first-time fondant experience: 1) The kit is beginner-friendly, and 2) You may need to give your skills a trial run before presenting the finished product to guests.

At The Daily Meal, we are keeping these kits on our gift lists for Christmas, birthdays, and for young bakers who (uninhibited by a perfectionist tendency) tend to produce better cakes than the grown-ups.

"The Cake Boss" also has a range of other products hitting stores soon, geared toward more than just the novice. An entire catalogue of metal bakeware, novelty bakeware, baking tools, mixing bowls, countertop accessories, frosting tips, fondant accessories, servingware, icing ceramics, dessert sets, and more will be available in stores. Some highlighted products include a baking sheet with drop zones, making spacing cookies while baking easy and foolproof; colorful silicone grips that are resistant to the oven’s heat; a scraping spatula with measurement marks and conversions on one side, with beechwood handles that resist heat and flavor absorption; fondant imprint mats and imprint rolling pins; and festive mixing bowls and cake carriers, inspired by Valastro's wife.

If you’d like to hear more about these products coming soon, please click here. You can also visit the 'Cake Boss' Twitter and Facebook page.

The Cake Boss – Everyone’s Buddy

For New York Times best-selling author Buddy Valastro, mixing eggs, sugar, butter and flour means a lot more than “making a cake.” As a fourth generation baker, it’s a constant source of pleasure, pride and creativity. Creating amazing cakes connects Buddy with the memory of his father Buddy Sr. and his extended Italian family history.

His talent and passion for the family business, Carlo’s Bakery, has earned the straight-talking cake expert the moniker, and TLC TV show, Cake Boss. In December 2010, TLC premiered the spin-off series, Cake Boss: Next Great Baker, where Buddy challenged bakers from around the country to compete for a chance to work alongside the Valastro family at Carlo’s. This past August, Cake Boss: Next Great Baker crowned its fourth season winner. December 2013, TLC launched Buddy’s Bakery Rescue (formally Bakery Boss), a series following Buddy Valastro across the country helping other family-run bakeries that are struggling to find their own sweet success with his famous blend of business skills and baking expertise. Following the launch of his best-selling first book, Cake Boss, Stories and Recipes from Mia Famiglia (Free Press, Nov. 2010), Buddy brought the pages of stories and tips to life on stage via his highly successful Bakin’ with The Boss Tour. Buddy went on to release a how-to book, Baking with the Cake Boss: 100 of Buddy’s Best Recipes and Decorating Secrets (Free Press, Nov 1, 2011).

A year later, Buddy shared his savory skills and favorite Italian recipes in his how-to book, Cooking Italian with the Cake Boss: Family Favorites as Only Buddy Can Serve Them Up (Free Press, Nov 6, 2012) and hit the road for his much-anticipated Homemade for the Holidays Tour. Last November, Buddy offered families festive tips and tricks to celebrate the holidays with his newest how-to book, Family Celebrations with the Cake Boss (Atria Books, Nov 5, 2013). Expanding outside of Hoboken for the first time, Buddy and the famiglia built a 100,000 square foot baking facility in Jersey City in 2011, opened multiple new locations throughout the United States and in Brazil. In October 2013, Buddy brought his family’s classic Italian recipes to the table, opening his first restaurant, Buddy V’s, in the Venetian Las Vegas Buddy then went on to open additional Buddy V’s restaurants in McAllen, TX and Bethlehem, PA. Old favorites and new recipes are on the menu as well as desserts you know and love from Carlo’s Bakery. Taking his talents behind the camera lens, Buddy and long-time partner Art Edwards have launched Cakehouse Media, a production company focused on creating original high quality lifestyle programming.


15 Buddy was arrested for a DWI in 2014

The star of the show, Bartolo "Buddy" Valastro, is known for his boorish yet charming demeanor. Even though he acts all rough and tough on the outside, deep down you can tell that he's a great guy with a soft spot for his family and a good sense of humor. Buddy has been running Carlo's Bakery since his father's unexpected and tragic passing in 1994, and has acted as a model citizen as well as a role model to the people who watch his show.

This is why it came as such a shock when, in 2014, Buddy was arrested and charged with a DWI in the Hell's Kitchen neighborhood of New York City. At around 1 a.m. in the morning, police officers pulled over Valastro while he was driving his yellow corvette. Allegedly, Buddy tried to talk his way out of the arrest by claiming that he couldn't be arrested because "[he] is the cake boss."

After spending a night in jail Valastro was released. However, Buddy was quick to apologize and take responsibility for the incident.

12 He Fired His Own Sister

Despite all of the focus on family values and keeping up traditions, family feuds are sometimes unavoidable. After Buddy’s sister, Mary Sciarrone, couldn’t drop the drama, Buddy decided to drop her.

Mary had become notorious for her bluntness and rude interactions with customers and staff alike. Despite Buddy’s own brashness, he felt that Mary’s bedside manner was putting his customers off.

Buddy confronted his sister after repeated incidents and eventually gave her the boot. He swore that Mary would never again have the opportunity to manage any of his several bakeries. While things were tense and awkward for viewers and crew alike, the decision to fire Mary was still greeted with favor by fans of the show who had long taken issue with her negative attitude.

'Cake Boss' Cake-Decorating Kits and More Hit Stores - Recipes

I'm looking for a gel food coloring that is squeezable. I'm currently using wilton food coloring but I'm not crazy about them. I heard Americolor is good. I would love some suggestions.

I would really like to know the answer to this question too!

Me three! But I'm pretty sure Wilton won't get too many votes but you never know!

I love Americolor. Have to use less to get color and it is much easier to use.

americolor by far . holds the color true.. like i used pink from wiltons and it was great for about 3 hrs then it turned neon pick i was fumin mad.. but ordered some americolor and did the pink test and stood up for many hrs no neon

I use Americolor, I think it is good, way better than Wilton, and your color will stay the same days after (Wilton only lasted few hours).

Now, I recently started watching Cake Boss, and I like their colors more than mines, and they use Chef Master. I would like to give Chef Master a try.

I have some Chefmaster gel colors. I went to my supply store looking for Americolor, but they only sold Chefmaster and Wilton. I bought the chefmaster because it came in a squeeze bottle. I really like them, but now my supply store carries Americolor and that's what I really want. I'll still use chefmasters if I can't find a certain color in americolor wilton will for now on be my last choice.
