Bristol Public Library's Discovery Series Presents Buddy Valastro, the "Cake Boss", Thursday, December 1st at 7:00 p.m. at Viking Hall Civic Center.

November 28, 2011

The Bristol Public Library’s 2011 Discovery Series will be hosting Buddy Valastro, author and star of TLC’s hit show, Cake Boss on December 1st, 2011 at 7pm, at Viking Hall Civic Center in Bristol, TN. For Buddy Valastro, mixing eggs, sugar, butter and flour mean a lot more than “making a cake.” As a fourth generation baker, it’s a constant source of pleasure, pride and creativity. His mastery of fondant icing techniques and introduction of the art of designer cakes to a broader audience continues the Carlo’s Bakery legacy.

Buddy’s first book, CAKE BOSS: The Stories and Recipes from Mia Famiglia, shares his family’s inspiring, fascinating, and poignant life story along with recipes for the bakery's most popular treats. Buddy’s beautifully designed cakes are the stuff of legends—and so is the remarkable story of his father, a beloved pillar of the community and a talented baker himself, who set the stage for his family’s rise to the pinnacle of their industry. “Christmas with the Cake Boss” will be an exciting time of competition, laughter, and learning for our entire community.

All other tickets will be available at the Viking Hall Box Office, or online at www.vikinghall.com. Proceeds from ticket sales will provide funding for programs of the Bristol Public Library. Remaining ticket prices range from $20 to $75 each. The ticket holders on the floor level can get a photo and have their book or program personalized by Buddy Valastro that evening.

A “Christmas with the Cake Boss” Cake Competition will be held earlier that day for Professional and Amateur levels including 17 & under and 18 & over divisions. Registration packets are available at the library and on our website. Registration ends November 21st.
