Let him make cake: TV’s Valastro makes return trip to Weidner Wednesday

Monday’s Phillips sellout was only the beginning of an exciting week at the Weidner, where the Cake Boss himself, renowned TV baker Buddy Valastro, will take the stage Wednesday (Nov. 20). Far from being a repeat of his last show at the Weidner in 2011, Valastro told the Press-Gazette’s Dan Higgins he’s looking to change things up for the 2013 crowd. “If you liked the last one, you’re going to love this one,” Valastro said in a recent preview story. “Last time it was more about the cupcakes. This time we’re going to do about five different cakes up there and we’re going to get people up there to compete against each other.” Valastro will have a busy day leading up to the show, appearing at Younkers at Bay Park Square Mall from noon-1:30 p.m., and doing a book signing at 3:30 p.m. at Festival Foods in Suamico.
