Hoboken, NJ (PRWEB) March 18, 2015
Buddy Valastro, star of the hit TLC series Cake Boss, today announced the launch of his interactive online culinary program, Baking With Buddy. Through virtual video-based lessons, Valastro presents – in a way only he can – an interactive, hands-on culinary experience that focuses on fundamental and advanced techniques, tools and recipes so that the home baker/decorator can follow along right in their own kitchen. Cookies, pastries, basic cake decorating and even theme cakes are covered in this unique and entertaining education in the art of baking and decorating.
“I really did this with the fans in mind,” said Valastro. “I wanted a way to be able to share my favorite recipes and baking and decorating techniques with the home baker across a range of experience levels, keeping the lessons fun and easy to follow along.”
Available for the introductory price of $99, subscribers will enjoy a full year of 24/7 online access to Baking With Buddy’s growing library of interactive virtual baking and decorating lessons.
For the creation of Baking With Buddy, Valastro partnered with LightSpeed VT, the leader in delivering the ultimate in private-labeled interactive virtual training systems. “Being able to take Buddy’s bigger-than-life persona and vast kitchen knowledge and experience and adapt it into a unique one-on-one, hand’s-on experience like most have never seen is what we live for at LightSpeed VT,” said Brad Lea, CEO and Founder of LightSpeed VT.
“It was great working with LightSpeed VT. We really ran with their technology to create a program that has allowed me to teach more than just how to mix eggs, sugar, butter and flour. It’s allowed me to really teach from the heart, share stories from my own baking journey and help anyone interested in baking and cake decorating be the best they can be,” said Valastro.
