* OneSteveLimit: Averted, as the Valastro family and extended family and friends don't seem to believe in this. For example: the name of both Buddy's wife and the name of his youngest (but still older) sister is "Lisa."
** Buddy himself, since he is actually Buddy II after his father. And he called his first boy Buddy III. Oh, and Mauro's son is also called Buddy.
* RealLifeWritesThePlot: Buddy's bakery was hit hard by Hurricane Sandy, and the season 6 premiere will showcase the bakery's struggle to recover.

"Lisa" (actually, Buddy's wife's real name is "Elisabetta"--"Lisa" is technically her nickname).

* DontTryThisAtHome: Invoked by Buddy when he did a test run on the fire-breathing tiki cake. There was also an episode where Carlo's did a cake for the Ringling Bros. Circus and they had asked Buddy and his crew to add a "ring of fire" to the cake--Ralph, who used to be a circus performer (specifically a fire-breather), showed them how they could do it without harming the cake.



* GratuitousItalian: Debatable -- in the opening credits of the first two seasons, Buddy refers to the crew at Carlo's as ''"mia famiglia"''. But he's first-generation Italian-American, his father emigrated from Sicily.

* DeliciousDistraction: Buddy made a giant cookie cake as an homage to Cookie Monster. He did it out of love. The fact that it kept Cookie away from Buddy's main project (a ''SesameStreet'' cake) was [[SubvertedTrope an added bonus]].

* GenreSavvy: Anthony's pretty good at knowing when he's going to get pranked, like the time they tried to throw the cake in his face. Turns into DeathByGenreSavviness in his birthday episode, where he still gets dumped on despite knowing exactly what's coming.
