Vincent "Vinny" Buzzetta

Buzzetta was born on October 4, 1989, in the Brooklyn borough of New York City. He and his family moved to Staten Island when he was 13 years old, but he continued to attend Xaverian Brothers High School in Brooklyn, from which he graduated in 2007. In February 2008, Buzzetta graduated first in his class from the French Culinary Institute – located in New York City's Manhattan borough – the youngest person ever to complete the institute's program. On October 31, 2008, with financial backing from his grandfather, Buzzetta opened his bakery, The Cake Artist, on Forest Avenue in the West Brighton neighborhood of Staten Island.
