Vinny Buzzetta is a 20-something baking prodigy, having graduated first in his class from New York's prestigious French Culinary Institute at the age of 18 (at the time, the school's youngest graduate). The Brooklyn-born foodie has always had a passion for chocolate and a dream to own his own bakery. When he saw a vacant storefront while driving through Staten Island a few months after he graduated, he decided that was the perfect location for his dream bakery, which he opened thanks in part to financial support from his Grandpa Joe (affectionately known in the community as "Crazy Joe"). Since then, the bakery, The Cake Artist, has thrived and become the go-to bakery for weddings and other special occasions in the area. Even though he's a successful business owner, Vinny still lives at home with his parents, including meddling mom Cammy, and younger siblings. This series follows Vinny and his staff as they work at the bakery and he deals with his personal relationships.
