Meet the Cake Boss — Tickets April 1st!

March 29, 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 legend—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 tickets for this event will go on sale April 1st at 10am. Tickets for seats located within the 1st five rows on the floor level will be on sale for $100 each at the Bristol Public Library beginning at 10am on April 1st. 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. “A lot of folks in our region and beyond are looking forward to ‘Christmas with the Cake Boss’ says Kathryn Ragan , Marketing Director of the BPL Foundation. “This is an opportunity to support the Bristol Public Library AND enjoy a fun event.” Ticket prices range from $20 to $100 each. “Of course, the ticket holders on the floor level can get a photo and have their book or program personalized by Mr. Valastro that evening”.
