Full Episode Guide
  • Duff heads to the Great White North to get a taste for frontier living as he prepares a cake for Alaska's 50th anniversary of statehood. At the bakery it's a spacey week with Jupiter and the Hubble, sci-fi ships and even pigs that fly! Plus, the CCC crew chips in for the Share Our Strength bake sale and cake auction. It's a week of dog sledding, snowboarding and polar bear swimming on Ace of Cakes. And what are the Jon & Kate sextuplets doing in the bakery??

  • 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.

  • Duff and his staff become part of the fun of 30 ROCK when Tina Fey invites them to make a cake to star in the show. Add to that, a special surprise cake for the cast and crew to celebrate their season finale. Duff gets inspired by the show and decides to whip up a order of cheesy blasters... and the Meat Cats carry the day!

  • Duff takes to the ice to challenge a team of sled hockey players, while Tommy summons up visions of Hasselhof in order to make the KITT car. Duff and Geof get a last minute birthday cake order and end up trading jabs with Drew Carey!

  • Charm City Cakes takes on one of it's biggest architectural (and pronunciation) challenges to date... the famous Neuschwanstein Castle in Bavaria. Duff and Katherine commune with the bats when they deliver a cake to a bat refuge home. And, the decorators of Charm City Cakes close ranks and create some cake support for one of their own... Joe ... when the starting pitcher plays in one of the most hotly contested High School rivalries in Baltimore. Go Poly!

  • Wait, is that Duff ... in a TUXEDO?! Check out Baltimore's famous chef as he heads up to Boston to deliver a cake to the Boston Pops Orchestra and conduct the Pops' rousing encore. Duff also comes face to face with another Boston legend when he takes on the green monster, throwing out the first pitch in one of the Red Sox' season openers. Then, it's off to the races, with a huge trophy cake for the 85th running of the acclaimed steeplechase the Virginia Gold Cup.

  • Chef Duff and his staff of decorators hit the high seas (or maybe it's the Port of Baltimore) for a boating adventure in order to create a stellar sailing cake. And the bakery mourns the loss of a renowned landmark when a hot dog stand surprise cake is cancelled after the location burns down the morning of their 70th anniversary!

  • Charm City Cakes gets in the holiday spirit by decking the halls, sipping the eggnog and hitting the golf course ... literally. The bakery staff chops a tree, decorates ornaments and sneaks around town playing Secret Santa. Plus Duff whips up a batch of his infamous eggnog. But evil Christmas elves cause some damage when Katherine's snowflake wedding cake takes a hit. Can some Duff fireworks at the Dizz bring back the holiday cheer?

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.
