Full Episode Guide
  • Are you ready for some football? Duff and his bakery staff concoct an elaborate cake creation to celebrate the 40th anniversary of Monday Night Football and Duff gets to deliver the cake to Redskin's field on game day. Then, it's a fight to the finish as Chef Duff enters the cooking ring, and goes head to head with Iron Chef Michael Symon for control of the kitchen.

  • Chef Duff trades shots with Haloti Ngata of the Baltimore Ravens. The defensive end drops by the bakery to fix up a pre-game cake for his teammates and deliver it to his buddies at football practice. Duff even gets to play armchair coach as the Ravens' playoffs berth hangs in the balance. And this week, the bakery staff muses about pets as the cakes go to the dogs ... dogs on airplanes, dogs in armchairs and fabulous Arnie, the growling Chihuahua.

  • Charm City Cakes practices its foreign language skills as the decorators take on two formidable historic figures ... a Terra Cotta warrior from China and a huge replica of Russia's St. Basil's Cathedral. The Cathedral delivery comes down to the wire and there seems to be a lot of smack talk about eye gouging going around.

  • The bakery is awash in plushy ducks when Duff is commissioned to do a cake for Aflac's Pediatric Cancer Center in Atlanta. Then Duff, Geof and Elena head out to NAMM where they check out the latest and greatest in the music world and create an upright, oversized guitar for the 20th anniversary of Acoustic Guitar Magazine. Duff also gets a little birthday surprise from the folks at Good Housekeeping when he stops in for some cake and a magazine spread.

  • Tally-ho, Jolly good, Pip pip! Charm City Cakes packs it bags and heads off across the pond. Taking their pastry skills to London, Duff and his crew brush up their Shakespeare for a cake for Shakepeare's Globe Theatre and wine and dine with some of London's best chefs. Get lost in London with Charm City Cakes as they see the sights (both on the beaten track and off) and practice their own special version of the Queen's English.

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.
