His arrival is imminent, that much is clear. 'Cake Boss' Buddy Valastro has begun to the process to shape the first floor of Ridgewood's historical Playhouse Theater building into a cake-makin' powerhouse.
Carlo's City Hall Bake Shop, a fixture in Hoboken for more than a century, announced it would be opening its second location in Ridgewood, expected to open late November.
The first sign of progress is there, as evidenced by Buddy's Facebook post: "Our temporary signs are up at Ridgewood," the baker wrote. "We've got so many great projects planned, can't wait to see it all come together!"
"We expect to do very well in Ridgewood," Valastro previously told Patch. "We have some really cool offerings at this new location, like a custom cake bar and a party room for kids to have birthday parties. We're excited about the opportunities."
Fans of the TLC show 'Cake Boss' might just see themselves on TV when the cameras arrive in the village sometime in 2013.
