Buddy could be seen posing for photos, working with his staff and finishing cakes that would be served to his guests lucky enough to be on hand for the opening.
Guests can savor a scaled version of the original location in Hoboken, New Jersey, including all the fan-favorite pastries along with photos of the Valastro family made famous by the reality television series.
The store is filled with freshly made cakes, cookies and other classic pastries, including favorites like red velvet cupcakes, cannoli, mini white chocolate mousse cake and mini strawberry cheesecake.

Our favorite was the Lobster Tail, a Carlo's Bakery classic. It's like a crunchy croissant filled with French cream and a touch of Bailey's Irish Cream.
The newest bakery for the famous New Jersey-based chain is part of The Florida Mall's new Dining Pavilion.
