    The ‘Cake Boss’ Buddy Valastro is setting up his next shop in Rittenhouse, according to the Carlo's Bake Shop website.

    Carlo's Bake Shop, made famous by the TLC series "Cake Boss" is gearing up to open its 10th location at 21st and Walnut sts, the website reports.

    Valastro's Philadelphia location, which is used to be home to a tanning salon, is expected to open in March of this year, according to Philly.com's Michael Klein.

    Following the expansion into Philadelphia -- and also Connecticut -- will put a Carlo's bakery in five states.

    Handling growing pains, is one of the biggest challenges of expansion, Valastro told Klein.

    "I might have to shave the menu for quality control."

    Carlo’s Bake Shop originated in Hoboken, New Jersey.
