Buddy's Sister Asks ANOTHER BAKERY To Make Her Birthday Cake! | Cake Boss
'Cake Boss' Buddy Valastro Hasn't Been Back To His Bakery Since His Mom Died
Carlo's Bake Shop is one of Buddy Valastro's most treasured places in the world. It's where his wife brought him dinner when he'd work Friday nights. It's where he found his calling as a baker. It's where he took on his father's legacy.
But, in the weeks following his mother's passing, theCake Bossstar has been back to work, but he hasn't returned to his Hoboken shop.
"I know that when I go there, I'll definitely break down," Valastro toldPeople. "That place has got so much history, and that was my mom's spot, that was her store."
Flowers and cards lined the shop after news spread that Valastro's mom, Mary Valastro, had died after an eight-year battle with ALS. It was so inspiring Buddy shared a photo of the place, and it was that outpouring of support that's helped him deal with this loss. It's also what made him decide to open up to the magazine about his mother, and her impact on his world.
"There were so many people who prayed for her, loved her and that's why I'm doing this," he said. "I want people to know what happened and I want to thank them for always being supportive of her."
Over the past year, Mary gradually lost her motor skills, relying on a wheelchair to get around. It's the unfortunate reality of living with the neurodegenerative disease, which Buddy discussed as a way to raise awareness of ALS — and let the fans who supported him understand what was going on when cameras weren't rolling.
"As much as I miss her, I'm glad she didn't have to suffer with feeding tubes, not knowing anyone and a painful death," he said. "I know she's in a better place."
The Valastro family have been advocates for raising awareness about the disease since their mother's diagnosis, launching the Momma Mary Foundation to help find a cure. It's work they're continuing to do to this day, with the hopes that one day, ALS will be eradicated.
Peoplewill feature a more in-depth interview with Buddy in its latest issue, on newsstands Friday.
