Carlo's Bakery Red Bank is set to be open for the holidays at 86 Broad Street. Ricky’s Candy, Cones and Chaos used to occupy that spot.

Valastro says he knows downtown Red Bank very well and that his bakery will be a perfect fit.

Customers can expect an open kitchen with baking done on premises. We'll get to enjoy everything from cookies to wedding cakes. The Cake Boss says what will make his bakery unique is that:

You can watch cakes and other pastries being made and brought to life right in front of your eyes.
