Oooh. A new show to become addicted to!!! Ace of Cakes on the Food Network.
Duff Goldman and his team create some of the most fabulous cakes out there and now we get to see all about what goes on behind the scenes. They can have twenty cakes a week and barely be able to get them all done because they are so intricate and detailed.
He has had cooking jobs with Thomas Keller, Todd English among others. But for Duff needed his own shop to create what he wanted to. He used to be a grafitti artist so you can guess that he is not tied down to any traditional concepts of cake decoration. He would love to be able to accept commissions for only the most creative cake decorating projects.
He quickly outgrew his home kitchen and smaller kitchens. Now, he and his friends have taken up residence in a 6,000 foot space. He only hires people he knows and likes. And of course Duff is in an Indie band.
His website is City Cakes and his show appears on Food Network
Here are some of the cakes I think are great
