    Buddy Valastro, of "Cake Boss" fame, owns Carlo's Bake Shop in New Jersey. It's one of the bakery's 11 locations around the country, the latest of which is opening up at Mohegan Sun Casino in Connecticut.

    Sweet treats are coming to Mohegan Sun.

    Carlo's Bakery, of TLC's hit series "Cake Boss," will open its doors at the casino in Uncasville on Saturday, Sept. 12.

    Those in search of an Italian pastry or specialty cake will be able to visit the new venue from 7 a.m. to midnight Sunday through Thursday and from 7 a.m. to 1 a.m. Friday and Saturday.

    Carlo's Bakery at Mohegan Sun will be located in the Winter section of the Casino of the Earth, according to a news release from the casino. It will be the bakery's eleventh location and its first in New England.

    "Mohegan Sun is such a cool, all-encompassing destination in Connecticut," Carlo's Bakery owner Buddy Valastro said in a statement Tuesday. "Opening a bakery there just seems like a perfect fit for us as we continue to grow our family business and join communities where our fans and their families can make a day out of their visit if they wanted to."

    Customers can sample the same Italian confections offered at the original Hoboken shop and can also enjoy dessert-only dining from 5 p.m. to 1 a.m. as part of the bakery's first-ever Sweet Room.
