Bittersweet finish for South Jersey duo on 'Next Great Baker'

Posted: August 21, 2014

The South Jersey team of Al DiBartolo and Manny Agigian placed second in the TLC cooking show Next Great Baker, which revealed its winner on its fourth-season finale Tuesday night.

DiBartolo, 39, of the family-owned DiBartolo bakery in Collingswood, and Agigian, 34, a pastry chef, competed again nine teams from around the country for a grand prize of $100,000 and an offer to work for a year with "Cake Boss" Buddy Valastro at his new bakery at the Venetian Resort Hotel Casino in Las Vegas.

The winners were Al Watson and Lia Weber from St. Louis. The entire season was taped, but DiBartolo, a cake artist, and Agigian were bound legally not to reveal who won. - Robert Moran
