Full Episode Guide
  • BACK TO THE FUTURE celebrates it's 25th anniversary reunion and stars Michael J. Fox, Lea Thompson and Christopher Lloyd look on as Chef Duff unveils the ultimate DeLorean time machine made out of cake. But back at the bakery things seem a little crazy and Duff wonders if he's losing his mind... or maybe the Flux Capacitor is just on the fritz...

  • Charm City Cakes concocts a gravity-defying pastry for Cirque du Soleil's big top troupe. Ben and Elena turn cake into animated Dummies and Duff does some culinary judging at the Eco-Ball.

  • CCC has some killer cakes on the books this week with a haunted chapel w/zombie bride & groom. And it's the Great Pumpkin Charlie Brown cake, and a six-foot long replica of a Hershey Bar for Milton Hershey School's 100th Birthday.

  • Mary Alice gets her party on at a Parrothead Mardi Gras fundraiser while Katie logs hours decorating an intricate purse for a surprise birthday. Duff and Geof work on a Wizard of Oz hot air balloon and an equestrian cake. Plus, a cake to be delivered by private plane to a unknown customer.

  • This week's cakes feature a gondola in Venice and a pizza pie full of Italian monuments with a gangster theme. The bakery is overrun with the usual craziness of stormtroopers, dog walkers and cake orders. And Geof responds when the pasta machine that drives everyone crazy suddenly goes missing.

  • Elena tunes up her music skills by making a unique bass guitar for a client with a special story. Erica is overwhelmed with the challenges of doing a cake for the Mummers in Philadelphia and Duff, Geof and Mary head up to New York to celebrate the Yankees new stadium and meet some very big names in baseball.

  • Duff suits up to do battle as he and Ben whip up the craziest video game star ever... the Big Red Squig... and meet some uber gaming fans. Geof's Pinto cake starts leaking fluid on its delivery run and Katie has trouble seeing straight as she does a cake for a video tribute at the Contemporary Museum. Geof clues us into the traits that make us his crack cake delivery staff and spatulas go flying as Video Duff goes to war, onscreen, against his nemesis, the flesh-eating Squig.

  • This week Mary Alice is a nervous wreck trying to keep everything straight without spilling the beans - a bride and groom have BOTH ordered surprise cakes for each other on the day of their rehearsal dinner. Ben and Elena work on a huge Humpty Dumpty bridal shower cake and the bakery staff muses on the consequences of National Egg Day.

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.
