It's important to recognize your New Jersey roots when you're in the Valastro framiglia. Hoboken is a place of history: Not only was Carlo's Bakery born here, but so was our hometown hero (and fellow Italian American), Frank Sinatra. (Oh and it's pronounced "Hoe-bo-kin," by the way.)

The Cake Boss family takes Italian roots very seriously. Having a strong foundation and understanding of where you came from brings the Valastros closer together.

Italian meals are all about putting love into the food, so the Valastros put love into everything they do, from planning a romantic anniversary dinner to treating your sisters to a day at the spa.

It's Momma Mary's way or the highway. If you're fooling around and making a mess, you know that the Valastro matriarch will be close behind, ready to teach you some manners.

Carlo's Bakery makes approximately 5,000 cannoli's every day. You're guaranteed to learn to stuff a cannoli to perfection.

Danny runs the show at Carlo's. He knows where everything and everyone is at any given moment. Think of him as the consigliere to Cake Boss world.
