Hoboken baker's name not unique.

HOBOKEN, N.J. - New Jersey's most famous cake maker won't have to change his name after all.

An agreement has been reached between a Seattle software company and the Learning Channel, which carries the reality series Cake Boss, featuring Carlo's City Hall Bakery in Hoboken.

A federal judge in Washington state had temporarily barred the show from using the name.

Masters Software of Seattle has been selling business software for bakery owners called CakeBoss since 2007, before the show started.

An attorney for Masters told the Jersey Journal that under an agreement between the parties, "Cake Boss" Buddy Valastro can use the name on the show and Masters can still use it for its software and other items.

It's another piece of good news for Valastro, who is expecting a fourth child in February with his wife, Lisa, according to a report last week in People.

Fans of Cake Boss can look forward to seeing the drama of the pregnancy, which will serve as a story line next season, the magazine reported. The child will be the couple's fourth.

Carlo's Bakery makes cakes to order that look like gigantic chocolate footballs, or car-tire sized pizzas, or even a dog lying on its owner's lap.
