Buddy “Cake Boss” Valastro finds himself at the center of a snacking scandal after being accused of stealing treats from another cable show at a New Jersey TV studio. The star baker was caught on camera grabbing goodies, leading to allegations of pilfering. However, Valastro claims it was all a big mistake and is even taking steps to make amends by baking a special cake for restitution.
The incident unfolded at a Jersey City studio where the crime show “On Patrol: Live” is filmed. Known for following real officers in the field, the show noticed that their private pantry was being mysteriously depleted of snacks. To catch the culprit in the act, the producers of “On Patrol: Live,” which airs on Reelz, devised a sting operation.
The Sweet Truth Unveiled
Upon reviewing footage from a Ring camera in the break room, the producers discovered that the unexpected snack thief was none other than Buddy Valastro, renowned for his work at Carlo’s Bake Shop in Hoboken and his appearances on A&E’s “Legends of the Fork” and “Cake Dynasty.” The stolen items included not only the odd energy bar but also whole bags of snacks, including fancy sweets from Japan and dried mangoes.
Staffers were shocked by the video evidence showing Valastro repeatedly helping himself to the snacks. According to a source, Valastro was caught on tape taking full bags of treats, with at least six instances recorded in a week. The irony of Valastro stealing from a show centered around law enforcement was not lost on the production team, as the studio often had actual police officers present.
When confronted about the alleged snacking theft, Valastro supposedly explained that he had walked into the wrong room due to a busy day of filming for his new shows on A&E. While his spokesperson admitted the mix-up and offered an apology, they also emphasized that Valastro enjoyed the snacks, including the tempting dried mangoes.
Despite the explanation provided by Valastro’s representative, the incident has undoubtedly caused a stir. The producers of “On Patrol: Live” have expressed concern over the blatant act of snacking banditry. Valastro’s actions have presumably led them to reevaluate their security measures and consider stronger safeguards for their pantry.
In the end, the cake maestro may have baked his way out of trouble by offering to create a special cake in restitution for the pilfered snacks. Whether this gesture will be enough to mend the bonds between Valastro and the other TV show remains to be seen. However, it serves as a reminder that even the most reputable personalities can succumb to temptation when presented with an array of delicious treats.
