Premise: The ``Cake Boss'' hits the road to give struggling bakeries a taste of his success.

So he visits family-run bakeries across the country, bringing his famous blend of business skills and baking expertise to help transform the stale stores into dough-making successes. Buddy evaluates the ingredients, techniques, processes, equipment and, perhaps most importantly, the families, challenging them to make the necessary changes -- both professionally and personally -- to make their American dreams come true.
