TLC preps ‘Cake Boss’ spinoff

CakeBoss8
TLC has picked up an eight-episode spinoff of its hit reality series “Cake Boss.” While that show serves as a docu-style look at the world of New Jersey baker Buddy Valastro and his family, the spinoff is a competition series.

Untitled series will feature Valastro as he puts 10 aspiring cake markets through a series of challenges. The prize includes an apprenticeship at Hoboken, NJ-based Carlo’s Bakery, the setting for “Cake Boss.”

Casting for the series has begun; applications can be found here. High Noon Ent. is behind the show, which is set for a December launch.

There are enough cake and dessert-based series to program an entire network these days. Bravo has “Top Chef: Just Desserts” in the works, while besides “Cake Boss,” TLC also already has the “Ultimate Cake-Off.” Food Network airs “Ace of Cakes,” while WE TV’s “Amazing Wedding Cakes.” Sugar rush!
