Available in stores now

Us rating: ** 1/2

Somehow, this cutesy reality show -- featuring pastry chef and family man Buddy Valastro, proprieter of Carlo's Bakery in Hoboken, New Jersey -- has become a cult hit. Highlights? He creates tea-party treats for NYC socialites and aims to satisfy a drag queen who wants to pop out of a cake at a Christmas party! (available at, $20)
