If you have ever craved the desserts from TLC’s “Cake Boss,” soon you’ll be able to stuff your face with the real thing.
Stars from the TV show, which chronicles Buddy Valastro and his crew inside their New Jersey bakery making extravagant decorative cakes, will open a Carlo’s Bakery kiosk inside Cumberland Mall on Saturday.
Roy Copeland, a property management associate at Cumberland, said he was at Perimeter Mall when Valastro opened the bakery’s first outpost in Georgia.
Copeland said 5,000 people showed up at the event, which started at 6 a.m.
The difference at Cumberland is that Valastro won’t be attending. Instead, “Cake Boss” co-stars Mauro Castano and Mary Sciarrone will open the store, and it’ll run from 8:30 a.m. to 10 p.m.
Still, Copeland is hopeful. “It should be a pretty lively event.”
As of Monday, more than 350 had said they were going on a Facebook event for the opening.
Cumberland general manager Chris McCoy said the kiosk will be located in the mall’s main rotunda and take up about 300 square feet, which he said is slightly larger than a regular kiosk.
This will be the 20th Carlo’s Bakery location, the company said. It will serve cannoli, cupcakes and more.
