Buddy Valastro, star of TLC's hit TV shows 'Cake Boss' and 'Next Great Baker,' is bringing his culinary expertise, funny stories and, yes, cake to Shreveport-Bossier.

On November 25, Valastro will appear at the Shreveport Convention Center as part of his Family Celebrations tour.

We spoke with the Cake Boss himself this morning on the Robert and Erin morning show to ask him what we can expect from his live appearance and find out what we have to do to get a great nickname.

"Plan on having a great time at the show," said Valastro. "I love to have fun. It's a family interactive show. I'll tell some jokes and I'll pick on the guys a little bit, too. But this is a show for the whole family. It's not just a show for the girls. I will decorate about five cakes onstage and then call people up and play some games to see who wins the cake." Hear Buddy's conversation with us this morning:
