Cake Boss' Christmas Confession ...

"Cake Boss" Buddy Valastro revealed a Christmas secret even darker than devil's food -- there are better holiday desserts than the rich desserts that made him rich and famous!!

Buddy tells TMZ ... his family won't be dining on cake during their Xmas dinner tonight because, "All of the other desserts are so good!"

So what overtakes the cake -- Buddy explains, "For dessert we usually do tiramisu, cannolis, pumpkin pie, chocolate covered strawberries and of course our famous Carlo's Bakery cookies."

In fact, nobody will get a "Cake Boss" cake this Xmas -- Buddy tells us he's officially closed his shop for the day.
