Full Episode Guide
  • What do Girl Scouts, space-age office chairs and a Louisiana plantation home have in common? They are the cakes of the week at Charm City Cakes..

  • Charm City Cakes is home to its first proposal ever captured on camera. A couple arrives from Ohio and the groom-to-be pops the question with a giant fortune cookie cake. Ben makes a spot-on replica of an anesthesia machine for a bunch of anesthesiologists, and Anna creates an Edgar Allan Poe-themed cake to celebrate the birthday of Mary Alice's favorite Baltimore restaurant.

  • The cake crew creates the Philadelphia Eagles stadium for a bar mitzvah accompanied by Swoop, the Eagles mascot. Elena also creates a breathtaking replica of a Nikon Camera and the bakery attends a gala party for Make a Wish.

  • Anna and the bakery staff create a memorable Antarctic birthday cake. Katherine brings a French children's book classic to life, and then there's the bobble head baseball pitcher designed by Elena.

  • Chef Duff is asked to make his tallest statue ever... an Egyptian Pharaoh for a stage show. But can they even pick it up to load it into the van? Lauren and Duff perform a high-flying act and the staff of Charm City Cakes takes on the ultimate challenge... making a cake, live on stage, in 45 minutes. It all seems possible, until Katherine forgets one important ingredient.

About the Host

Ace of Cakes' Duff Goldman started cooking at four, when his mom caught him swinging around a cleaver while watching Chef Tell on TV.

About the Show

Meet Chef Duff. Shaping cakes with drill saws and blowtorches, and staffing his bakery with fellow rock musicians, he's not your typical baker. However, he's one of the most sought-after decorative cake makers in the country. Every week at Charm City Cakes in Baltimore, Duff and his team of artists try to meet the demands of creating up to 20 cakes a week, some of which take up to 29 hours to build! From a tilted Dr. Seuss-like seven-tiered wedding cake to an almost perfect replica of Wrigley Field, Duff can build it. Go behind the scenes to see how he and his fellow cake bakers dish up sugar and spice in the most unexpected and entertaining ways.
